Liverpool joint top

The Reds have jumped to joint top of the league weekend, the Reds tied with Jose Mourinho’s Spurs on points but behind on goal difference.

Jürgen Klopp’s side put in a superlative performance on Sunday, to a man they were excellent.

It was a game of headers at Anfield. Jonny Evans nodded the opener into his own net after 20 minutes.

Diogo Jota headed home an Andy Robertson cross 20 minutes after that.

The scoring was rounded off when Roberto Firmino’s noggin put the Reds out of sight with just minutes from the final whistle.

Gary Lineker on Liverpool

Tweeting after the game, Gary Lineker was full of praise for Liverpool.

Raphinha, Coutinho and Tielemans: The signings Liverpool could make this summer

The England and Leicester City icon was drooling over Jürgen Klopp’s Reds after a thoroughly professional performance.

Lineker described the champions as emphatic, superb and exceptional.

What RTK has to say

Gary Lineker has always been an appreciator of Liverpool.

The ex-England forward is a particular fan of Trent Alexander-Arnold, he’ll be gutted that the Scouser wasn’t playing on Sunday.

As long as Jürgen Klopp’s side can maintain this level of performance then there will be no stopping them this season.

They brushed aside a Leicester City side which has impressed this season, more of the same could put the Reds out of sight.
