  • The whistle goes for full-time and Liverpool have prevailed 3-0 at White Hart Lane following a dazzling display. Balotelli played well on his debut before being substituted but this was all about the team performance as Liverpool maintained their recent dominance over Spurs.

  • Boos ring out around the ground as Lovren appears to pull the shirt of Adebayor inside the area but play is waved on. That should have been a penalty, even if it is too late to make much of a difference.

  • Moreno receives a late booking for tugging the shirt of Townsend.

  • Tottenham have kept batting hard and manage to win a corner, but they have failed to really trouble Mignolet at all in the second half.

  • Sterling acknowledges a great ovation from the Liverpool fans as he goes off to be replaced by Enrique.

  • Spurs finally construct a decent attack as Lamela dribbles away from a couple of players and plays in Adebayor, but the flag is raised for offside.

  • The game has lost some of its intensity now as the clock ticks down, with Liverpool not wanting to commit too many men forward and risk letting Spurs back in.

  • Sturridge sets himself up for a shot on the edge of the area but curls it well wide.

  • Townsend has failed to set the game alight since coming on and he wastes possession here as a promising attack fizzles out.

  • Adebayor is still proving to be a handful up front but is lacking support as he tries to pick out a team-mate following a strong run down the left.

  • Sterling torments Dier once again down Liverpool's right but the angle is against him as he shoots weakly at Lloris.

  • Sterling is shown a yellow card following a late challenge on Kaboul in midfield.

  • Henderson's shot from 20 yards is blocked by Vertonghen following another dynamic run from Sterling.

  • Tottenham's third change of the afternoon sees Davies come on for Rose at left-back.

  • Can powers forward from midfield and releases Sterling. The England youngster jinks away from a couple of defenders on a magical little run, but cannot provide the finishing touch to what would have been a wonderful goal as he pokes a tame shot straight at Lloris.

  • Lovren heads over from a corner for Liverpool. It is probably a case of damage limitation for Spurs now.

  • Sturridge tries his luck with an ambitious shot from distance but does not connect as he means to at all and it flies well wide.

  • Sturridge tries his luck with an ambitious shot from distance but does not connect as he means to at all and it flies well wide.

  • Tottenham look all at sea at the back and Liverpool are scenting blood as they win a corner.

  • There is surely no way back for Tottenham now, but can Liverpool match the scoreline from last season and score another couple of goals?
