Sadio Mane scored twice as a blistering first-half display ended Liverpool’s five-match winless run with victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
The winger, who missed most of January on Africa Cup of Nations duty, opened the scoring after 16 minutes, finishing Georginio Wijnaldum’s sumptuous through-ball.
Just 138 seconds later Mane had his second, robbing Eric Dier before finishing after Hugo Lloris had saved twice.
Liverpool had further chances to score in the first half, although Spurs' Son Heung-min also had a shot well saved by Simon Mignolet.
The contest was more even in the second half although Joel Matip headed straight at Lloris and Philippe Coutinho shot wide.
Liverpool’s first league win of 2017 puts them on 49 points, within one of Spurs, who remain second.
