Anfield Smackdown: Gary Lineker hails €43m Liverpool 'superstar' after LFC 'batter' Spurs

Liverpool's horrible run is finally over.

The Reds put sorry Spurs to the sword this evening with the best team performance of the year, and after the game, England legend Gary Lineker enthused:

"Liverpool look a different proposition with Mané back in the side".

Some other post-match reaction:

* Jurgen Klopp: "It was an outstanding performance offensively in the first half, and defensively in the second half. We could have scored again. There were some outstanding individual performances".

* Mauricio Pochettino: "It was difficult to achieve the same intensity as Liverpool. They were better. It is true we are one point above them in the table but today we didn't show that".

* Jim Beglin: "A very good win for Liverpool. Blistering first half, professional second. A much needed 2017 uplift".

* Neil Mellor: "Great result for Liverpool against such a strong side and rival to get back to winning ways".

* Simon Mignolet: "Great performance, great result, but an even greater attitude to see the game out".

* Luis Garcia: "Sadio Mané goals bringing light to this 2017. Top four"

* Jordan Henderson: "We were much better in terms of performance and the result. It's a start in the right direction and we need to keep going like that".

* David Thompson: "Liverpool battered Tottenham, limiting them to a single shot on target. They were fantastic today with work-rate, effort and desire".

* Sadio Mane: "We are all going in the same direction. We deserved to win. We controlled the game from beginning to end."

Two weeks to the next game :-(
