Liverpool win ding-dong encounter with Spurs thanks to late Gerrard penalty

Liverpool 3 – Tottenham 2 (Premier League, March 10, 2013) (Alternative highlights, MOTD highlights) Liverpool took the lead on 20 minutes with a fine near post finish from Luis Suarez from an Enrique through ball. Jan Vertonghen equalised from a Bale cross just before the break. After the break Jan Vertonghen bagged his second from another Bale free-kick. Poor defensive play from Walker and Lloris allowed Liverpool to equalise through Stewart Downing. Liverpool went 3-2 up from a Steven Gerrard penalty after Assou-Ekotto was adjudged to have fouled Suarez.
