Tottenham vs Liverpool: Mourinho falls to knees in disbelief as Reds punish wasteful Spurs

- Tottenham vs Liverpool saw the Reds march to a 1-0 slim win away from home

- Roberto Firmino scored the only goal that separated the two teams

- Spurs had a couple of goalscoring opportunities but Son Heung-Min, Aurier and Lo Celso all fluffed their chances

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho hilariously dropped to his knees in disbelief of his team's missed golden chances as Liverpool won 1-0 at Tottenham to keep their title hopes alive.

Roberto Firmino's first-half goal was the only difference during the tough league clash played on Saturday, January 11.

The victory took Liverpool's winning run to 12 matches and they are now undefeated in their last 38 matches.

Mourinho had to contend with the absence of Harry Kane ahead of the encounter, who is nursing a potentially season-ending hamstring problem.

The Portuguese boss, therefore, had to rethink his attackline set up, slotting in summer signing Lo Celso to fill the void.

Liverpool dominated the opening exchanges of the match, with Virgil van Dijk missing a good chance, before Firmino schooling debutant Tanganga for a brilliant opener.

It looked ominous for Spurs, but they surprisingly came to life in the second half with a rousing performance.

Son Heung-min and Serge Aurier all came close to drawing Spurs level, but both squandered their chances.

It was, however, Lo Celso miss in the dying minutes of the clash that left everyone stunned, with the 23-year-old Argentina midfielder sending his virtual tap-in wide.
