Premier League hits and misses: Luck shines on Liverpool but old failings for Tottenham | Football News

Some of Liverpool’s performances this season have been below par, and yet they have still found a way to win with Sunday’s encounter against Wolves a classic example of this. While every team are in the middle of a heavy run of fixtures over Christmas, Liverpool have had a four-week head start as they continue to battle for glory on multiple fronts.
