Gareth Bale scored a stunning free-kick and set up Aaron Lennon with a wonderful solo run to bring Liverpool's eight-match unbeaten run to an end with a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane.
The Welshman scored what has to be one of the most unlucky own goals in Premier League history to tarnish his evening slightly but Tottenham still managed to come away with their second successive win despite an edgy second half in north London.
The win, which moves Spurs above Arsenal and Everton into fifth, did not come easily - but it did remind the club's critics that in Bale they have a man capable of winning a match almost single-handedly.
