PREMIER LEAGUE: Tottenham make light work of nine-man Liverpool

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.

The score was 1-0 at the break but by then Liverpool were down to ten men after Charlie Adam quickly accumulated two yellow cards.

Just after the hour it became 11 against 9 as Martin Skrtel received a second yellow for yet another foul Gareth Bale as being played out of position did the Slovakian no favours whatsoever.

Almost immediately Spurs doubled their advantage through Jermain Defoe, quickly followed by the first of Emmanuel Adebayor's brace, reacting first as the Reds keeper Jose Reina fumbled Defoe's shot.

Liverpool were simply looking at damage limitation by this stage but deep into injury time the Togo striker completed Kenny Dalglish's humiliation by adding number four.
