Tottenham Hotspur

Liverpool return to winning ways

Goals from Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane capped a dominant display by Juergen Klopp's side whose first league win since 19 December sent them back into the top four.

Firmino's effort in first-half stoppage time ended Liverpool's barren run of 482 minutes without a league goal.

Alexander-Arnold doubled their lead in the 47th minute before Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg lashed in his first goal for Tottenham a minute later to give the hosts hope.

Kane and Son rip Everton apart as Spurs hit six

Scintillating Spurs are now just two points behind second-placed Manchester City and trail Liverpool by six but after this performance, the London club look well capable of pushing their rivals all the way.

"Everybody's been talking about Liverpool and Manchester City, and we've been getting on with it and doing well, like we normally do," said Kane.

"We've had a good month and hopefully we can take that into January now - and February - and we'll see where we're at come April time."

Liverpool continue perfect run

Chelsea, though, have also recorded a perfect start after Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Cardiff City, allowing them to edge past Liverpool on goal difference at the top of the Premier League.

Watford will join the early leaders on 15 points if they beat Manchester United later on Saturday.

Liverpool's goals came from Georginio Wijnaldum -- his first away from home in the Premier League -- and Roberto Firmino, who later went off with an eye injury.

Tottenham ease past Fulham

England striker Kane struck early on and twice after the interval to take his tally for the season to 19 as the eight-times FA Cup winners eased into the quarter-finals.

Stung by consecutive defeats and wary of becoming another weekend Cup shock after upsets involving Leicester City and Burnley, Tottenham produced a dominant performance.

Fielding a strong team with defender Jan Vertonghen back from injury they quickly hit their stride and Kane opened the scoring in the 16th minute when he stretched to volley in Christian Eriksen's teasing low cross.

Eric Cantona's seagulls and trawlers, Jose Mourinho's famous declaration "I think I'm a special one"... the list is long and illustrious.

But you probably never imagined you'd hear Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino namechecking two of the world's biggest popstars during his pre-match press conference ahead of their big Boxing Day clash with Norwich City.
