Tottenham striker, Harry Kane found the net twice as his side walloped Liverpool 4-1 in a week 9 Premier League encounter at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
The England international scored the opener after four minutes when he took the ball around goalkeeper Mignolet as Kieran Trippier’s chipped pass went over Dejan Lovren’s head.
Eight minutes later, Kane assisted Son Heung-min to slot home and double the home side’s lead.
But Mohamed Salah pulled one back for the visitors on 24 minutes, before Dele Alli added a third for Spurs just before half-time.
It was after the interval that Kane netted his second of the day as he followed up a rebound from Jan Vertonghen’s shot after Mignolet failed to clear a free kick.
Kane, who scored his first goal at their temporary home against the Reds, has now scored 45 goals in 2017 for Spurs and England.
“Unbelievable, we wanted to start fast and get the crowd on their feet – that’s exactly what we did,” the striker said after the game.
“I thought we played really well. Their goal came against the run of play. We were pushing and could have got the third or fourth goal early on.”
Liverpool Boss, Jurgen Klopp, who was dissatisfied with the result, said, “The whole game, the whole result was all our fault – Tottenham was good, they needed to be good, but we made it much too easy for them.”
The result means Liverpool drop to ninth on the table – 12 points behind leaders Manchester City – while Spurs, still third, prepare for a meeting with United at Old Trafford on Saturday.
