A sorry Liverpool performance saw them end the game with nine men and comprehensively beaten 4-0 by Tottenham at White Hart Lane. Even allowing for the discrepancy in player numbers Tottenham were worthy victors over a Liverpool outfit who looked out of sorts all afternoon.
For Spurs boss Harry Redknapp it was his sixth win in eight games in all competitions over Liverpool and from the moment Luka Modric opened the scoring after seven minutes the result was never really in doubt.
