Liverpool were minutes away from a big dent to their title hopes.
A late own goal from Alderweireld gave the hosts all three points and put them back at the top of the table.
Liverpool started off well going 1-0 up inside 15 mins thanks to a goal from Robert Firmino.
With the game still only 1 goal apart Spurs made it 1-1, thanks to a goal from Lucas Moura with 20 mins left.
With the game nearing the end a crazy own goal from Toby Alderweireld meant Liverpool took all three points and are two points clear of Manchester City who have their game in hand on Wednesday versus Cardiff.
Cardiff themselves were unlucky today after leading 1 – 0 up until the 86th minute they got beaten 2-1 with Chelsea.
Cesar Azpilicueta’s equaliser for the Blues was a header from a clearly offside position and Antonio Rudiger was lucky to avoid a red card before Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s winner late on.
