Spurs 4 Liverpool 1

Spurs fans in a record Premier League crowd of 80,827 were treated to a magnificent performance against Liverpool. As expected, the team moved on quickly from the magnitude of the display and 1-1 draw against Real Madrid on Tuesday night and flew out of the traps, the foundations of this win laid in that dominant first 20 minutes.

Harry Kane opened the scoring on four minutes and then provided Heung-Min Son with the chance to fire home the second on 12 minutes, a classic counter-attack that started with Hugo Lloris’ throw and finished with the ball in the net four touches later. The South Korean clattered the woodwork four minutes after that.

Liverpool, always a threat going forward, pulled a goal back on 23 minutes through Mohamed Salah but it was brief respite for the Reds in that first half as we came firing back, Son and Kane twice goimg close. The third goal arrived with perfect timing just seconds before half-time. Christian Eriksen floated in a free-kick, Joel Matip headed out to Dele Alli who volleyed home from 16 yards.

The match was put out of Liverpool’s reach with the fourth goal 10 minutes into the second half, Kane there again to pounce for Spurs goal number 112 after Jan Vertonghen’s effort was cleared off the line.

It was just left to Lloris to make his mark with three late saves – the first, from Philippe Coutinho, another for the Frenchman’s highlight reel.

Giants 7 Seahawks 24

The Seahawks dominated just about every facet of their win over the New York Giants, but it was only in the second half that the score caught up. Seattle pulled away for a 24-7 final, but it wasn’t without bumps along the road.

They entered halftime down three despite outgaining New York by nearly 200 yards, and for a moment there, it looked like Jimmy Graham may never catch another pass. But Russell Wilson finished with one of his best stat lines as a Seahawk — 27-39, 334 yards, three TDs — even despite missing a couple deep balls, and the defense was as dominant it has been this season. Seattle overcame 15 penalties for 110 yards and improved to 4-2.

No matter the game, these Seahawks always manage keep it interesting.
