A PR representative from Coca-Cola said, via a press release: "We are delighted to announce this partnership with Tottenham Hotspur".

Liverpool's willpower is keeping their Premier League title hopes alive, admitted manager Jurgen Klopp after his side moved back top of the table in dramatic fashion with a 2-1 win over Tottenham at Anfield yesterday.

Mohamed Salah forced a crucial late own goal as Liverpool earned a huge 2-1 victory over Tottenham in the 32nd round of the Premier League. Cardiff is five points from safety with seven games remaining.

However, Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris's error to parry the ball in off the unfortunate Alderweireld was reminiscent of Jordan Pickford's mistake to also gift Divock Origi a late victor against Everton earlier in the season, suggesting Liverpool's luck may be in this year. But I told the boys after the game, there are 500,000 different ways to win a football game and today was rather ugly.

"Without a bit of luck you can not be in the position we are in". Now the gulf has grown to 18 points and Tottenham is in third spot, in a scrap to finish in the four Champions League places.

Roberto Firmino opened the scoring in the 16th minute getting between the Spurs central defenders to meet a perfectly shaped cross from left-back Andy Robertson with a firm header. They have only picked up one point in that time.

"I am proud of the recovery from the losses against Southampton and Burnley".

The stadium, which is now the biggest club venue in London, is finally set to host its first Premier League game after months of delays.

The central bank kept the policy stance unchanged while the repo rate became 6 per cent from 6.25 per cent earlier. The central bank is due to release its first bi-monthly policy statement for financial year 2019-20 at 11.45 am.

"I was telling the players in the changing room we have seven games and we are in top four and we need to compete".

Son, whose team will also play Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals, is upbeat about his side's top-four chances with eight league games still to go this season.

The only shot on target of the first half proved the difference at the interval, with Firmino running into the space between Spurs' centre-back trio to head in Andrew Robertson's precise cross.

That was Robertson's 12th assist of the season from left-back and the Scotland captain was involved again in a flowing move moments later as he forged down the left and neat touches from Salah and Georginio Wijnaldum teed up Sadio Mane to curl just wide.

It was no surprise when they drew level - Harry Kane swinging a wonderful cross-field pass to Kieran Trippier whose low ball was flicked on by Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura drove home the loose ball.

"We were very positive and we controlled the game, we should have won the game probably, then we conceded a late goal in a very bad luck way".

Harry Kane hit a flawless ball forward from a quick free-kick to find Kieran Trippier, the right back steered the ball into Christian Eriksen, whose square ball was sent in from close range by Lucas Moura.
