Comments:

League position: 7th Lazar Markovic's opener was Liverpool's 4,000th goal at home in the top division. Only Everton (4,208) and Aston Villa (4,025) have scored more. This was Liverpool’s fifth consecutive league win over Tottenham Hotspur. They have lost just one of their last 21 home Premier League matches against Spurs. Mario Balotelli scored his first Premier League goal for Liverpool after 13 appearances. His last league goal was for Milan in Serie A against Livorno on 19 April 2014. Mamadou Sakho was booked in the first minute of added time in the first half.

Comments:

League position: 6th Steven Gerrard's penalty was the seventh conceded by Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League so far in 2014-15 - two more than any other team. Harry Kane has now scored 12 goals in his last 15 appearances for Spurs in all competitions. He was booked in the third minute of added time in the second half.
