18th September 2011: Tottenham 4-0 Liverpool

In what was one of the most pulsating seasons of Premier League history that ultimately ended with Sergio Aguero’s last gasp winner against QPR on the final day, Tottenham’s fight for a top four finish was dramatic and entertaining throughout and this early season thumping of Liverpool really signalled their intentions for the season.

Both Charlie Adam and Martin Skrtel were sent off for Kenny Dalglish’s side as Spurs were rampant, with Gareth Bale really starting to come into his own at this time. The star of the show was home debutant Emmanuel Adebayor though, who scored twice alongside strikes from Jermain Defoe and Luka Modric to earn a famous with for the Lilywhites.

15th December 2013: Tottenham 0-5 Liverpool

It would only take two seasons for Liverpool to earn the ultimate redemption at White Hart Lane though. In a season in which a Luis Suarez inspired Reds side would challenge Manchester City up until the final day of the campaign, it was a thumping 0-5 away win over Andre Villas-Boas’ sorry Tottenham outfit in December that really made the Anfield faithful start to believe that something special was about to happen for their side.

Luis Suarez and Jordan Henderson had put the visitors two goals clear at half-time before Tottenham midfielder Paulinho was shown a red card and the hosts really did capitulate. Jon Flanagan made it three with a wonderful finish before another goal from Suarez and an injury-time strike from Raheem Sterling wrapped up a dominant win for Brendan Rodgers’ team.

10th February 2015: Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

With Tottenham showing signs of improvement in their first season under Mauricio Pochettino, this clash was vitally important for both Spurs and Liverpool in the 2014/2015 season as they sat in 6th and 7th respectively and were looking to close the gap to the top four and the Reds’ hero came from an unlikely source on the evening.

The hosts had twice led in the game through Lazar Markovic and Steven Gerrard, only to be pegged back by Harry Kane and Moussa Dembele equalisers. With the game seemingly fizzling out into a 2-2 draw, up popped enigmatic forward Mario Balotelli to score the winner with what would turn out to be his only Premier League goal for the Merseysiders.

22nd October 2017: Tottenham 4-1 Liverpool

With many Spurs fans still worrying about the difficulties of playing a season at Wembley Stadium during the renovation of White Hart Lane, a thumping 4-1 win over Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in October 2017 really started to ease those worries. This game though was mostly remembered for the early subbing of a demoralised Dejan Lovren after his dreadful start to the game.

Spurs eased into an early lead thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min in the opening 12 minutes, before Mo Salah’s 24th minute strike appeared to drag the Reds back into the game. Further goals from Dele Alli and Kane eventually put the game beyond doubt and Tottenham would eventually go on to finish two points clear of the Reds in the table.

4th February 2018: Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

A true Premier League classic, this 2-2 draw just five months later produced one of the most dramatic finishes to a game you’re ever likely to see. It was a rather uneventful first-half too, as Liverpool led 1-0 at the break through Mo Salah’s third minute goal but all hell was about to break lose in the second half.

On 80 minutes, Spurs substitute Victor Wanyama hammered in a piledriving equaliser and Spurs seemed to have a chance to win it on 87 minutes, only for Harry Kane to miss a penalty kick. Mohamed Salah then scored a wonderful goal in injury-time and seemed to have handed the Reds the points, only for the visitors to be handed another penalty and this time, Kane made no mistake to secure a well-earned point for Pochettino’s side.
