Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Tottenham secure their first win over Liverpool in nine attempts and they join Manchester United in second place on 20 points. Harry Kane's brace has guided them to the victory this afternoon, while strikes from Son Heung-min and Dele Alli were just as important. Mohamed Salah's effort in the first half did give the Reds hope at 2-1, but Alli's goal before the break effectively killed off the contest.

58' Any hope Liverpool had of getting back into the contest has been extinguished. Tottenham can control the tempo of the game now and put men behind the ball.
H. Kane
56' GOALLLLLLLL!!!! KANE HAS HIS SECOND! Nightmare defending from Liverpool allows Kane to notch his second to surely hand Tottenham the three points this afternoon. Eriksen swings the free-kick in from the right and Mignolet come for it and misses the ball completely. Vertonghen collects and fires at goal, but his effort is blocked.

Tottenham have regained control of the contest after a frenetic first half at Wembley. Spurs were outstanding in the early stages of the contest, racing into a 2-0 lead as Harry Kane and Son Heung-min found the net. Son could have added a third, only to be denied by the bar. The Reds stunned the home side by breaking back into the game as Mohamed Salah scuffed his effort past Hugo Lloris. Jurgen Klopp's men were on top for a period, but Tottenham upped the ante before the break and Dele Alli's fine strike has restored their two-goal advantage, leaving them in a strong positon.
45' + 3' The referee ends the first half.
D. Alli
45' + 3' GOALLLLLLL!!!!! ALLI FINDS THE NET! What a time to score for Spurs. They restore their two-goal advantage right on the stroke of half-time as Alli pounces on Matip's poor defensive header and strikes on the volley. His effort has power and accuracy as it beats Mignolet to find the bottom corner. A soul-destroying moment for the Reds, but the home side are back in control.
E. Can
Yellow Card
45' + 2' Can is booked for his challenge on Alli.
45' + 2' Alli goes on the charge and is brought down by Can. Spurs will have one last chance to lift the ball into the box in the first half.

44' Can floats the ball over the top of the Tottenham defence and Salah is in a foot race with Sanchez, but Lloris comes off his line to head clear.

39' Trippier makes a vital challenge at the back post to stop Firmino latching on to Milner's deep cross, but he concedes a corner in the process.

A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
D. Lovren
31' Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces Lovren, with Gomez moving into the middle of the defence alongside Matip.
30' BLOCK! Kane latches on to a long ball over the top and gets half-a-step on Lovren, but as he volleys towards the net, the defender gets back just enough to make the block. The contest is so open across the pitch.
29' CHANCE! Alli releases Son behind the Liverpool backline, but he cannot make solid contact with his effort and Mignolet makes the save with an outstretched leg. The rebound almost falls back to the winger, but the Belgian gathers.
28' Coutinho lifts a ball over the top of Aurier and Salah drifts in at the back post, but he can only guide a tame header straight at Lloris from an awkward angle.
27' Liverpool are the ones applying the pressure now as Red shirts are flooding into the final third. All hands on deck for Tottenham now at the back.
26' Spurs were cruising and had that effort from Son hit the back of the net it could have been game over. However, Salah's strike has opened the match up nicely for the visitors.
Mohamed Salah
24' GOALLLLLL!!!! LIVERPOOL ARE BACK IN THE GAME! Straight from Spurs' failed counter Henderson releases Salah in behind. The winger does not make great contact with his finish, but the ball clips off the inside of the post and nestles into the back of the net. Lloris was beaten too easily there.
J. Henderson
24' Henderson releases Salah's run and the Egyptian applies the finish.
23' Kane bursts forward into the centre circle, but he lacks support and loses out to three Liverpool players. There should have been more white shirts around Kane there.
20' OVER! Can sums up Liverpool's opening 20 minutes as he latches on to a loose ball on the edge of the Spurs box, but he fires his effort well over the bar.
19' Tottenham raid forward with menace down the right and this time Son offloads to Trippier. He has support in the box, but Matip positions himself well to clear the ball away. All hands on deck for Liverpool at the back.
18' Spurs open up the Liverpool defence again as a deft touch from Kane releases Son. The two players surge into the final third and the Korean tries to pick out Kane in the box, but Matip does well to hold his ground and make the intervention.
17' OFF THE BAR! Eriksen releases the run of Son in behind and the winger has the pace on Matip. He goes for a strike on the half-volley from a tight angle, only to see his effort rattle off the bar and bounce clear. Liverpool are all over the place at the back.
16' Sanchez runs back towards his own goal with the ball and is put under pressure by Coutinho. Fortunately for the defender Lloris is there to clear the ball after receiving a panicked backpass.
14' Spurs are rocking now and Liverpool must ensure that they tighten up at the back. They cannot afford to concede a third goal this early in the match.
H. Kane
12' Kane continues his fine start as he puts the ball on a plate for Son to score.
Son Heung-Min
12' GOALLL!!!!!! SON DOUBLES SPURS' LEAD! Tottenham are in dreamland here as Son doubles their advantage. It's another mistake from Lovren at the back as he takes a huge gamble trying to head away Lloris' clearance. However, he misses the ball and Kane breaks in behind. Son surges forward into the box and the forward picks him out with a fine cross. The winger converts as he gets a strong enough connection to beat Mignolet.
11' Coutinho raids down the left flank and he feeds the on-rushing Moreno, who fires the ball into the box, but his cross does not pick out a red shirt. Gomez floats the ball back into the area, but Lloris gathers with ease.
10' Winks makes a neat turn in the final third and he slides the ball through for Kane, but the pass is just ahead of the forward in the box.
8' Liverpool's defending has been suspect at times under Klopp and it comes under question again as Lovren pushed far too high up the field. The Reds' forward players need to dig their side out of an early hole.
6' Tottenham's confidence will have found new levels now and the Reds now have to push back to get into the game.
K. Trippier
4' Trippier lifts the ball over the top for Kane and the forward makes no mistake.
H. Kane
4' GOALLLLLLLLL!!!! KANE STRIKES! Tottenham are ahead and Kane strikes as he latches on to a ball over the top and rounds Mignolet, before firing into an empty net on his left foot. Gomez was a fraction too deep and played the England man onside and it allowed to break in behind and supply a composed finish to put Spurs in front.
3' Firmino turns Sanchez in the final third and tries to release Salah down the right flank, but Aurier gets back to make the tackle and stop the attack. Aurier has started on the left, with Trippier on the right flank.
1' We're underway at Wembley.
The players are out on the pitch, so we should be underway shortly.
STAT ATTACK! Spurs are winless in their last nine Premier League games against Liverpool, losing six of the contests.
FLASHBACK! Liverpool claimed a 1-1 draw in their final visit to White Hart Lane. James Milner's penalty had put the Reds ahead, only for Danny Rose to equalise in the second half to secure a point for the home side.
Liverpool have made two changes to the team that hammered Maribor during the week. Simon Mignolet reclaims his place between the sticks, while Jordan Henderson replaces Georginio Wijnaldum.
Spurs have made three changes to their side that drew 1-1 against Real Madrid. Dele Alli comes back into the fold to replace Moussa Sissoko, while Son-Heung Min comes in for Fernando Llorente. Eric Dier was ill on Friday and has to start from the bench, with Kieran Trippier coming into the side to play left wing-back as Jan Vertonghen reverts back into the centre.
Liverpool subs: Karius, Sturridge, Grujic, Klavan, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Solanke, Alexander-Arnold.
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Mignolet; Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno; Milner, Henderson, Can; Coutinho, Firmino, Salah.
Tottenham subs: Rose, Vorm, N'Koudou, Dier, Sissoko, Llorente, Davies.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-3): Lloris; Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Aurier, Winks, Alli, Trippier; Eriksen, Son, Kane.
The team news has been announced and we'll start with the home side.
Liverpool were frustrated by Manchester United in their last Premier League outing, drawing 0-0 against the Red Devils at Anfield. Since hammering Arsenal 4-0 at the end of August, Jurgen Klopp's men have only won one out of their last five matches, with a positive result a must this afternoon to remain with the early pacesetters.
Since their defeat at the hands of Chelsea in the second game of the season, Spurs have gone six matches unbeaten in the Premier League. However, their most important win came last time out against Bournemouth as Mauricio Pochettino's men ended their struggles at Wembley, securing their first home victory of the campaign.
Both teams come into the contest off the back of impressive performances during the week in the Champions League. Tottenham held Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu, while Liverpool put seven goals past Maribor on the road. As a result, both sides should not be short on confidence this afternoon.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Liverpool at Wembley Stadium.
