Salah scores brace as Liverpool beat Spurs

Mohamed Salah scored twice in the first half as Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-1 in the Premier League. The win is Liverpool’s first away from home this season.

Liverpool had lost their previous two league games to struggling Nottingham Forest and Leeds United, so manager Jurgen Klopp will be delighted with this win at Spurs, who are shaping up as top-four rivals.

Salah swept home a sharp left-foot finish from Darwin Nunez’s pass after 11 minutes, then capitalised on Eric Dier’s misplaced headed back-pass to double Liverpool’s lead five minutes before the break.

Spurs were never out of it, even without the injured Son Heung-min, as Ivan Perisic hit the crossbar either side of halftime before Harry Kane equalised with 20 minutes remaining.

However, they were unable to complete one of their trademark comebacks this season.
