VIEW FROM WHITE HART LANE

Greg Stobart reports: “Liverpool have splashed out on new signings over the summer, but it’s two stars of last season’s title charge who have scored their two goals today. It was a naive tug on Joe Allen from Eric Dier to concede the penalty and Steven Gerrard was never going to miss. You sense Spurs are out of this now, although Mauricio Pochettino - just yards in front of me - has been bellowing ‘believe’ towards his players.”

ASTON VILLA 2-0 HULL - CHEERIO 3-5-2!

Mike Keane reports: “Steve Bruce has replaced Curtis Davies for Liam Rosenior, seemingly ditching the 3-5-2 formation that’s been so ineffective so far in place of a good old-fashioned 4-4-2. Villa are straight back on the front foot with Gabby Agbonlahor making a nuisance of himself.”

GOAL! Tottenham 0 Liverpool 2 (Gerrard pen)

And the skipper fires into the bottom left-hand corner to make it 2-0!

LIVERPOOL PENALTY!

Eric Dier tugs the shirt of Joe Allen and pulls the midfielder to ground. It's incredibly soft, but thems the rules and it's a penalty! It's Steven Gerrard - not Mario Balotelli - to take...

LEICESTER v ARSENAL

Team news from the King Power Stadium on the way in around half an hour. Forget Arsenal - Esteban Cambiasso is a Premier League player! He's in the Leicester squad for today's game. Will he start?

HT: ASTON VILLA 2-0 HULL

Mike Keane reports: “Steve Bruce’s face has become increasingly beetroot coloured as the game’s gone on, with his team showing absolutely nothing of value in the first half. Villa have sliced through the Tigers’ back-line at will, with Delph, Weimann and Agbonlahor all impressing. A lack of bite in midfield is one of the contributing factors to Hull’s struggles, with Tom Huddlestone looking shattered already. Villa have been irresistible going forward, with Hull failing to pick up runners from midfield. Brad Guzan and the Villa back-line won’t have an easier game all season.”

HT: TOTTENHAM 0-1 LIVERPOOL

A mixture of brilliant attacking play and defensive errors sees Liverpool lead at the break thanks to Raheem Sterling’s goal. It could have been more for the visitors had Mario Balotelli not spurned two chances - one just three minutes in - but Tottenham have also had their fair share of opportunities, with Nacer Chadli going closest to force Simon Mignolet into action.

HALF-TIME - ASTON VILLA 2-0 HULL

That was the final act of the first half at Villa Park. Who said Roy Keane and Paul Lambert couldn't work together? Unbeaten in the league so far and on their way to seven points out of nine. Happy days.

ASTON VILLA 2-0 HULL - VILLA GO CLOSE

Inches away! Ashley Westwood bends a wonderful free kick onto the upright. Aston Villa have been excellent so far while Hull have been appalling. Steve Bruce looks absolutely livid on the touchline.

HALF-TIME - TOTTENHAM 0-1 LIVERPOOL

That's the first 45 over at White Hart Lane, where Mario Balotelli was left completely unmarked from a corner right on the stroke of half-time but, from an awkward angle, blazed well over. First-half summary coming up...

TOTTENHAM 0-1 LIVERPOOL - CHANCE FOR CHADLI!

It should be 1-1. Emmanuel Adebayor does incredibly well to draw both Liverpool centre-backs away from danger to allow the ball to fall nicely to Nacer Chadli. But, through on goal with only Simon Mignolet to beat, the in-form midfielder can only force a terrific save from the goalkeeper.

TOTTENHAM 0-1 LIVERPOOL - MANQUILLO BOOKED

Another yellow for a Liverpool player as Javier Manquillo slides in late on ENGLAND INTERNATIONAL Danny Rose. If you haven’t heard, Mauricio Pochettino informed the left-back this week that he was not part of his plans and wanted to sell him... only to reveal it was all a bit of #bantz and he was actually in the England squad. TOP #BANTER!

ASTON VILLA GOAL - WEIMANN

GOAL: Tremendous team goal from Villa who look to have this game won after 35 minutes. Hull give it away cheaply, for the umpteenth time this afternoon, and Gabby Agbonlahor feeds Kieran Richardson who pulls it back for Andreas Weimann. He’s in acres of space and has time to take a touch before smashing it in to double the home side’s lead. Steve Bruce does not look best pleased.

ASTON VILLA 1-0 HULL - VILLA ON TOP

Aly Cissokho is heavily involved on the left for Aston Villa. No real efforts to speak of but the hosts remain on top in this one.

TOTTENHAM 0-1 LIVERPOOL - BALOTELLI! WIDE!

Oh dear. Oooooh dear. A minute after his brilliant backheel sets up Daniel Sturridge to have a pop at goal, Mario Balotelli receives the ball 40 yards out after a dreadful Hugo Lloris clearance lands straight at his feet. The Italian has time to take a touch and shoot at an open goal but rushes and fires well, well wide. A waste.
