Ben Davies reveals what Tottenham are aiming for this campaign
Son Heung-min equalised for the visitors in the 33rd minute after Mohamed Salah opened the scoring 7 minutes prior.
Spurs came close with Steven Bergwijn hitting the post, but it was Liverpool who stole a 90th-minute winner. Roberto Firmino headed in from an Andy Robertson corner to displace Spurs from the top of the league table.

Instead of repeating the worn-out line of being ‘focused on the next game’, the Welshman revealed that the team wants to fight for the Premier League title this season.
“That has to be our aim [to be in the title race]… we’re up there. We want to fight.”
The left-back went on to add that the club has its eyes on winning its first silverware since 2008, when they won the Carling Cup.
“Winning something this year is what we’re aiming for.”
Jose Mourinho signed left-back Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid in the summer. However, Ben Davies got the nod ahead of the 24-year-old Spaniard against Liverpool.
Davies has had to fight for his position ever since Reguilon arrived in September. The former Real Madrid full-back has started in 8 league games ahead of Davies’ 5. (Stats courtesy: Transfermarkt)
Davies, who was signed from Swansea more than 6 years ago, will be hoping to feature when Spurs welcome Leicester City this weekend.

The Foxes lie 4th in the table, just a point behind Tottenham. A win could see the Lilywhites return to the top of the table if Liverpool lose their game against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
