Liverpool produced an irresistible performance to beat a toothless Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 at White Hart Lane today, ending the hosts 100% start to the Premier League season.

Raheem Sterling, Steven Gerrard and Alberto Moreno were on target as Liverpool bounced back from defeat by champions Manchester City with a classy performance in manager Brendan Rodgers's 100th game in charge.

Enigmatic striker Mario Balotelli made amends for his wasteful finishing on his Liverpool debut with his impressive all round performance and positive work ethic.

"It was great link up play by Daniel (Sturridge) and Jordan (Henderson). The manager has been telling me to get inside the post and try add to my goal tally and that's what I've done," Sterling told Sky Sports.

"Mario and Daniel up front is always a threat and I've got to try be in the box to get some goals."

The result allowed fifth-placed Liverpool to move level with Tottenham in the standings with six points.

Meanwhile, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Andreas Weimann scored as Aston Villa maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-1 victory against Hull City at Villa Park.
