Liverpool outclass Tottenham to go top

Liverpool FC turned on the style to dispatch Tottenham Hotspur FC 4-0 and go two points clear at the Premier League summit, after Everton FC heaped more misery on Fulham FC.

Liverpool FC are in pole position to end their 24-year wait for the league title after outclassing Tottenham Hotspur FC on a day when Everton FC heaped more misery on Fulham FC.

Brendan Rodgers' charges were quickly out of the traps at Anfield, with just two minutes on the clock when Younès Kaboul deflected Glen Johnson's centre into his own net. Spurs were wobbling and fell further behind when Luis Suárez outstripped Michael Dawson on the left and arrowed the ball beyond Hugo Lloris from an acute angle.

The passing continued to be pure and accurate from the Reds after the interval and a third goal was not long in coming. Coutinho had time and space after collecting Jon Flanagan's pass and picked out the bottom corner with precision. Jordan Henderson's free-kick then evaded a host of team-mates and nestled into the far corner as Liverpool made it eight straight Premier League wins and strode two points clear of Chelsea FC at the summit.

It was also a day to celebrate for the other half of Merseyside as Everton beat bottom side Fulham 3-1 and moved within four points of Arsenal FC in the hunt for a UEFA Champions League berth. Fulham's Ashkan Dejagah wiped out David Stockdale's own goal after half-time, but Kevin Mirallas restored the Toffees' lead and Steven Naismith made sure of the result three minutes from time.
