Richarlison delivered a nine-point haul in Spurs’ 4-2 loss at Anfield, scoring once and supplying the assist for Son Heung-min’s (£9.9m) goal.

His display against the Reds means the 26-year-old has been involved in 40 per cent of Spurs’ goals when selected this season, second only to the 45 per cent of Son.

The underlying numbers highlight Richarlison’s influence on Ange Postecoglou’s attack ahead of their encounters with Burnley and Manchester City.

His 141.9 minutes per goal is the quickest of any Spurs player this season. Indeed, despite playing almost 1,000 minutes fewer than Son, Richarlison has been supplied with 17 big chances, just one less than the South Korean’s 18.
