Posted on by SoccerPunter

According to our latest H2H stats based on home records, Tottenham have beaten Liverpool six times in a row at White Hart Lane. It is an impressive statistics as Liverpool continue to struggle at English Premier League. Click here for H2H report.

Gareth Bale inspired Tottenham to a 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Wednesday that lifted Spurs to fifth position in the Premier League.

Wales winger Bale was the goal assist for the opening goal for Aaron Lennon with a surging run and cross early in the first half and then beat Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina with a deflected strike to double Tottenham‘s lead.

However, Bale scored an own-goal after Aaron Lennon blasted a panic clearance into his face that rebounded into the net, but Tottenham hold on to the lead despite Liverpool constant pressure to secure their second successive win in Premier League.

Liverpool‘s defeat was their first in eight English Premier League matches and left Brendan Rodgers’ team in 12th place.

Bale was in the mood right from the start and his free-kick was parried away by Reina and the rebound almost allowed Jermain Defoe to nip in.

Defoe then ran at the Liverpool defence before setting Bale up for a drive across goal that was only just wide.

A goal was coming and Liverpool were unable to stop Bale’s surge down the left that saw him beat four challengers before crossing to Lennon, who was perfectly placed to slot home at the back post.

Liverpool’s top scorer Luis Suarez almost cancelled out that seventh-minute opener with a low drive, but Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was able to parry and his defenders did the rest.

Jordan Henderson, the Liverpool midfielder, should have equalised in the 14th minute after Defoe was caught in possession and Suarez sent Jose Enrique through down the middle.

Kyle Walker managed to nick the ball off Enrique but succeeded only in taking it away from the on-rushing Lloris and into Henderson’s path. Walker’s challenge was just enough to put him off however and the shot went wide.

Liverpool had only two minutes to wait for confirmation of just how costly that miss would be as Bale made it 2-0 direct from a free-kick which Reina will not want to see replayed any time soon.

Bale’s shot deflected off Henderson’s head in the wall on it’s way towards the middle of the Liverpool goal, which Reina had unwisely vacated, and had enough swerve to bamboozle the goalkeeper.

Liverpool came close to a reply when Walker kicked the ball off the line to deny Suarez.

The home side survived until half-time with their lead intact, but were soon back under pressure in the second period, with a Michael Dawson error setting up a chance for Enrique that he spoiled with a misplaced header.

Liverpool were back in the game with 20 minutes remaining when Lennon blasted the ball off Bale’s face into his own net after Steven Gerrard had headed goalwards.

Bale was then booked for diving before Suarez saw one shot deflected wide and another fly over the bar as Liverpool pressed for an equaliser.

Suarez volleyed over after Daniel Agger had hooked the ball over his head and there was a strong appeal for a penalty when the Uruguay striker went down under a William Gallas challenge but referee Phil Dowd waved play on.
