Liverpool 2 Spurs 1

Liverpool’s title hopes were kept alive in dramatic fashion as a last minute own goal from Toby Alderweireld secured a vital win over Spurs.

The Reds looked to be heading for two dropped points after Lucas Moura’s second half strike cancelled out Roberto Firmino’s opener, but Spurs ‘keeper Hugo Lloris parried Mo Salah’s last-gasp header in off his own defender’s legs to gift Jurgen Klopp’s side a 2-1 win and send them back to the top of the Premier League.

Klopp had Trent Alexander-Arnold fit to start, despite his withdrawal from the England squad during the international break, and returned to his trusted big-game trio of Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum in midfield, leaving Fabinho on the bench.

With Harry Winks and Eric Dier out injured, Mauricio Pochettino had no such luxury, naming a makeshift midfield, with attack-minded pair Moussa Sissoko and Christian Eriksen asked to sit at its base.

It was a first-half that could be neatly divided into thirds. The opening quarter of an hour saw Spurs settle the better, moving the ball around nicely, but when Andy Robertson bent a sensational cross into Firmino, the Brazilian nodded home to give the home side the lead and settle the Anfield nerves.

For the spell that followed, Liverpool were irresistible. Robertson and Alexander-Arnold enjoyed the freedom of the flanks, with Spurs’ wing backs pinned inside by the mere threat of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

It was Mane who came closest to doubling the advantage, and indeed thought he had, wheeling away in celebration, only to see his curler fly just the wrong side of the upright.

Eventually Pochettino, watching from the stands as his touchline ban continues, got the message through to change the system, dropping Lucas Moura into a midfield four to try and contain the galloping Reds fullbacks, and at last it gave Spurs a foothold.

Indeed, had they not been a little wasteful in midfield, and had a couple of uncharacteristic Alisson errors not passed without punishment, they may even have gone in at the break with an ill-deserved leveller.

As it was, Spurs used the interval for some more tactical tinkering, pushing Danny Rose higher up the flank and shifting to a back four, with Jan Vertonghen on the left, in a bid to halt Alexander-Arnold’s bombing raids.

It was Rose’s attempted cross that fell kindly for Harry Kane to force Alisson into his first real save of note, and when he could only parry into the path of Eriksen and equaliser looked inevitable until Robertson arrived right on time with a heroic block.

As the hour mark approached, the game opened up. Salah squandered a decent opening after a vintage Liverpool break, but at the other end they never quite looked like a side that had only conceded 18 goals all season.

It was no surprise then, when number 19 arrived. Kane started it with a smart piece of thinking, fizzing a quickly-taken free-kick out to Trippier, and when the England man’s cross was miscued by Eriksen, it found its way through to Lucas to slam home.

Klopp responded immediately by throwing on Divock Origi and Fabinho for Milner and Henderson in a move that was all twist and no stick.

Origi, rather surprisingly on free-kick duty, almost found a way through when his strike clipped the wall to wrong-foot Lloris, but drifted agonisingly wide of a vacated corner.

Spurs had chances of their own to win it, most notably when Sissoko and Son found themselves two-on-one with Virgil Van Dijk, but the Dutchman positioned himself superbly to force Sissoko into a weak-foot strike over the bar.

But in the end it would be a moment of remarkable good fortune that sealed all three points as the unfortunate Alderweireld watched the ball trickle over his own line.

Let It Bleed

The Rolling Stones

Well, we all need someone we can lean on
And if you want it, you can lean on me
Yeah, we all need someone we can lean on
And if you want it, you can lean on me

She said, my breasts, they will always be open
Baby, you can rest your weary head right on me
And there will always be a space in my parking lot
When you need a little coke and sympathy

Yeah we all need someone we can dream on
And if you want it baby, you can dream on me
Yeah, we all need someone we can cream on
Yeah and if you want to, you can cream on me

I was dreaming of a steel guitar engagement
When you drunk my health in scented jasmine tea
But you knifed me in my dirty filthy basement
With that jaded, faded, junky nurse oh what pleasant company, ha

Though, we all need someone we can feel on
Yeah and if you want it, you can feel on me, hey
Take my arm, take my leg
Oh baby don’t you take my head
Hoo

Yeah, we all need someone we can bleed on
Yeah but if you want it, well you can bleed on me
Yeah, we all need someone we can bleed on
Yeah yeah and if you want it baby why don’t ya
You can bleed on me
All over, hoo

Plastic Jesus

Ed Rush and George Cromarty

I don’t care if it rains or freezes
Long as I’ve got my plastic Jesus
Sitting on the dashboard of my car
Comes in colors pink and pleasant
Glows in the dark cause it’s iridescent
Take it with you … when you travel far.

Get yourself a sweet Madonna
Dressed in rhinestones sitting on a
Pedestal of abalone shell
Going ninety I ain’t scary
Cause I’ve got the Virgin Mary
Assuring me that I won’t go to hell.

Get yourself a sweet Madonna
Dressed in rhinestones sitting on a
Pedestal of abalone shell
Going ninety I ain’t scary
Cause I’ve got the Virgin Mary
Assuring me that I won’t go to hell.

The Man in the Iron Mask

Billy Bragg

When he drops you off, I will not say
Who was that who so quickly drove away
The things you’ve done
And the places you’ve been
When I open the door for you
I will not let them in
As long as you come back to me
I will never ask
For you I will be
The man in the iron mask
You said you loved me and it broke my heart
I was always a prisoner right from the start
The nights you spend without me,
This house is like a dungeon
And you only return to torture me more
You must have your reasons
I will not ask
For you I will be
The man in the iron mask

Dreams

Fleetwood Mac

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well, who am I to keep you down?
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat… drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost…
And what you had…
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say… Women… they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean… you’ll know, you’ll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It’s only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…
Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness…

Like a heartbeat… drives you mad…
In the stillness of remembering what you had…
And what you lost…
And what you had…
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you’ll know

Oh, thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you’ll know
You will know, you’ll know

You know how much I love my Moodies but my goodness they never wrote powerful lyrics like this.

Barclay James Harvest

After the day

The eyes of the night march slowly by
The last grain If the
kneeling man just sighs
Protected by the one great wall
Of colored parts
He probes his clouded mind
If he takes a look around him
Is there nothing left to see
Is there nothing left at all
after the day

With trembling hands he wipes his eyes
He tries to stand
But does not feel the need
The morning sun shines on
The multicolored cross
Left standing through it all

If he takes a look around him
Is there nothing left to see
Is there nothing left at all
after the day

If he takes a look around him
Is there nothing left to see
Is there nothing left at all
after the day

For No One

Please lay down your pistols and your rifles
Please lay down your colors and your creeds
Please lay down your thoughts of being no-one
Concentrate on what you ought to be
Then lay down your bullshit and your protests
Then lay down your Governments of greed
Take a look at what lies all around you
then pray God we can live in peace

Everyone’s a loner ’till he needs a helping hand’
Everyone is
a ‘one-one’ till he wants to make a stand
God alone knows how we will survive

Please lay down your pistols and your rifles Please lay down your colors and your creeds
Please lay down your thoughts of being no-one
Concentrate on what you ought to be

Everyone’s a loner ’till he needs a helping hand’
Everyone is
a ‘one-one’ till he wants to make a stand
God alone knows how we will survive
