Associated Press Luis Suarez scored twice in Liverpool’s 0-5 victory away at Tottenham Hotspur.  The Reds were dominant on the day, especially after the sending off of Paulinho to take Spurs down to ten men. Paulinho was shown a red for a dangerously high challenge on Suarez where his foot connected with the Uruguayan’s chest. Liverpool was already handling Tottenham on all fronts before the red card, earning a two goal lead in the  first half. Suarez opened the scoring in the 18th minute with a low shot after a flicking on from Henderson.  Later, Henderson himself got in on the scoring action.  With only five minutes remaining in the first half, he fired in a brilliant volley after Philippe Coutinho’s shot came clanging off of the crossbar. The crowd at White Hart Lane booed as the teams went into halftime.  However, the second half would only be more discouraging for Tottenham fans.  Liverpool came out with the same determination, eviscerating the Spurs’ defense.  They were in complete control when Paulinho issued a high challenge on Suarez, giving the official no choice but to send him off. Once they held a one-man advantage on the pitch, Brendan Roger’s side began sealed the victory with another goal from Suarez, as well as finishes from Jon Flanagan and Raheem Sterling. Press Association The two goals ring Suarez’s tally up to 17 goals this season.  That is one more goal than all of Tottenham have scored this season.  Once again, Andre Villas Boas will be having the fingers pointed at him, as Spurs again have been humiliated at home this season.  Not only did his side look unable to cope defensively.  Spurs failed to register a single shot on target in the entire match. Tottenham have won only 1 of their last 7 home games and the frustrations will be building as the team continues to slip further from a Champions League qualification spot.  Regardless of the support of his team, Villas Boas will need more victories at home if he wants to hold on to the reigns at Tottenham. Meanwhile, the five-goal victory marks the greatest ever win for Liverpool at White Hart Lane.  Even without Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge, the Reds were potent all around the pitch.  Although Liverpool may lack the depth of other title contenders, they make up for it with team spirit.  Manager Brendan Rogers has his side playing together in a way that should not be underestimated.  With Luis Suarez at the helm of the attack, Liverpool look able to take on any club on any given day.
