Premier League Matchweek 13 hits and misses: Roberto Firmino's late winner against Tottenham hands Liverpool title race control (2-1)

Firmino fires Liverpool back to the top

There has been plenty of drama in the Premier League this season but in its own way this still felt like the biggest moment of the title race so far - Roberto Firmino eluding Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld to win the match for Liverpool against Tottenham at Anfield.

It was Spurs who began the evening top of the Premier League table and it was Spurs who had the better chances on the night. Steven Bergwijn missed two, Kane squandered another. But when it was all over it was the champions three points clear of the rest.

Firmino has scored some big goals for Liverpool. Almost a year ago, he netted the only goal of the game against Flamengo as Jurgen Klopp's men became champions of the world. But there have not been many since. This was only his third of the season so far. Timing.

It felt huge. Liverpool had plenty of possession but they never had control. Tottenham were good, but they were not good enough, and that could be psychologically significant now.
