Football: Liverpool Beat Spurs 2-1, Sturridge Brace

Liverpool, – Daniel Sturridge scored a brace as Liverpool defeated Tottenham 2-1 at Anfield on Tuesday to seal a place in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup.

Sturridge turned in a loose ball inside the area to break the deadlock in the ninth minute before converting a one-on-one opportunity in the second half to double both his and Liverpool’s tally.

His second brace in this season’s competition – he also scored twice in a 5-0 victory at Burton Albion in the second round – settled an all-Premier League affair that pitted the League Cup’s last two losing finalists.

Vincent Janssen converted a 76th-minute penalty to halve the deficit but Tottenham’s unbeaten run in all competitions came to an end at eight games.
