New captain of Liverpool FC Luis Suarez scored twice as Liverpool dominated 10-man Tottenham to move second in the Premier League table.
The Uruguayan’s 16th of the season took him past the total for the whole Spurs side when he took on Jordan Henderson’s flick to find the bottom corner.
Philippe Coutinho hit the bar before the excellent Henderson volleyed in.
Paulinho was then sent off for kicking Suarez before goals from Jon Flanagan, Suarez and Raheem Sterling completed a miserable afternoon for Spurs.
As we have already learnt this weekend, football chairmen will wield the axe whatever time of year. The spirit of Christmas? Bah humbug, they will say. Will Andre Villas-Boas follow Steve Clarke or will Daniel Levy keep faith with his man?
What will perhaps worry Tottenham most is that their team did not get a shot on target during that match. The first time they have failed to do so since Opta stats began.
0 – This was the first time since Opta started full collection in 2006/07 that Spurs have failed to have a shot on target at home. Bleak.
