Tottenham consolidated third place in the Premiership with a hard fought 0-0 draw at Liverpool in a game of few chances.

Luis Suarez returned after a nine-match absence and came on as a second half substitute and was promptly booked within five minutes.

Spurs seemed happy to settle for a point and their keeper Brad Friedel had the most saves to make without really being troubled.

Overall this was a tight game with Tottenham having the best chance to claim three points when Gareth Bale was put clean through with five minutes remaining but Pepe Reina saved with his legs.

Jay Spearing and Martin Kelly went close for the host’s as Liverpool drew at home for the eighth time this season whilst Spurs failed to score in a league game for the first time in 22 games.
