It was a feast of Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with north London taking on the Merseyside clubs.

Arsenal made the journey to Everton, while Tottenham welcomed Liverpool to Wembley and in the end, the two sides from the capital ran out convincing winners.

The Gunners romped to a 5-2 victory at Goodison Park to heap more pressure on Ronald Koeman and Spurs brushed aside Jurgen Klopp's Reds, winning 4-1 in the national stadium.

It was a truly disastrous performance from the first whistle by Liverpool, with Dejan Lovren turning in one of the worst half-hour spells of football ever seen in the Premier League era.

Harry Kane scored twice to take his tally to eight for the season, with Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli the other names on the score sheet.

Mohamed Salah did make it 2-1 in the first half but in truth, Liverpool barely even deserved that.

It was perhaps Klopp's lowest day in England, with the former Borussia Dortmund and Mainz coach looking downright disgusted with his players in his post-match interview.

FURIOUS KLOPP

Klopp 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 first goal was a little throw in and we are not really there. It was just really bad, bad, bad defending.

"The second, a counter attack, when the ball passes Dejan Lovren it is already too late.

"Coming back in the game with the goal we had our chances, but it's nothing to talk about today.

"The third one, it's a completely open situation. We make the foul, again, all our fault. The fourth - second ball and third ball for Tottenham, their desire was bigger than ours.

"The game was finished then. We came here for a result and had not one second to get a result."

His team were simply not good enough and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville says he spotted something very worrying creep into Liverpool's game for the first time under Klopp.

NEVILLE'S CONCERN

"Today, they looked like a sad team, the first time under Jurgen Klopp where I've thought they look like a sad team," Neville said on his podcast after the game.

That's very worrying, particularly as Liverpool already have a number of players with undecided futures in Philippe Coutinho and Emre Can.

Should the morale drop in the camp like Neville believes is happening, things may only get worse for Liverpool. Concerning times.
