Comments:

League position: 1st With six games still to play, Liverpool had now equalled their points total (79) when they won the league title for the last time in 1989-90. Only Chelsea (86 games from 2004 to 2004) had now recorded a longer unbeaten home run in the Premier League than the Reds. They had now matched Manchester City's run of 37 games from 2010 to 2012. Liverpool had now scored 33 winning goals in the 90th minute or later in games in the Premier League; eight more than any other team in the competition. This was now the third time in their history that the Reds had led 1-0, levelled at 1-1 and then led 2-1 in three consecutive games in all competitions; also April 1938 and December 2017 to January 2018.

Comments:

League position: 3rd Tottenham Hotspur had now completed a run of five games without a win in the Premier League for the first time since March 2012. Harry Kane made his 250th appearance for Spurs in this game (164 goals). Only Jimmy Greaves (192) and Bobby Smith (174) had scored more goals in their first 250 games for the club. They had now conceded 1,301 goals in the Premier League (played 1,031, scored 1,538). Only Everton had now conceded more (1,307). Toby Alderweireld became the first player to concede a match winning own goal in the 90th minute or later in a game in the Premier League since Watford's Troy Deeney against Manchester United on 21 November 2015.
