Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Anfield to pick up their first Premier League win of 2017 and climb back into the top four.

The Reds, with just one win in 10 overall this calendar year prior to this victory on home soil, had two first-half goals from Sadio Mane to thank for the three points.

Tottenham’s third loss of the season, each coming away to a top-four rival, seemed inevitable from the 20-minute mark as they badly struggled to recover and were justifiably beaten.
