Liverpool extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to 16 points with victory at Tottenham on Saturday – and Jurgen Klopp’s side still have a game in hand.

The result sends Liverpool into the record books, also. It’s the best start to top-flight season in Europe’s top five leagues: 21 games, 20 wins and a draw.

And whi​le 1-0 scoreline at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was hardly a reflection of Liverpool’s superiority, with the league leader’s content to hold Spurs at arm’s length for most of the match.
