Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool - THINGS YOU MISSED

Liverpool took another significant step towards being considered genuine Premier League title contenders by maintaining their 100 per cent start to the season with a win over Tottenham.
The Reds had Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino to thank, who netted goals in the first half before Erik Lamela scored a consolation in the third minute of second-half stoppage time.
While you were focussed on the action, Sportsmail was keeping an eye on some of the quirkier moments on you behalf. Here are the things you may have missed. 

Touch of NBA stardust at Wembley
In between his basketball exploits and competing on the amateur golf tour, somehow Steph Curry still finds time to dabble in other sports.
The driving force behind the Golden State Warriors, Curry is in London to promote the NBA as well as his own brand which continues to grow with every passing month.
He was a welcome guest at Wembley and was presented with a Tottenham shirt by club ambassador Ledley King.

Son's Asian Games achievement recognised
Silverware has been hard to come by at Tottenham in recent years, so it came with little surprise to see the club jump at the chance to honour one of their players for winning a trophy.
Son Heung-Min was part of the South Korea squad to triumph at the recent Asia Games and was presented with an ornament prior to kick-off in recognition of his achievement.
The forward played a key part as South Korea beat Japan 2-1 in the final after extra time. It was the second time in succession that they have won the competition and the fifth overall.

Wijnaldum ends away-day hoodoo
Georginio Wijnaldum has been like a new signing for Jurgen Klopp this season. His new-found form was further underlined against Tottenham when he scored the first away goal of his Premier League career.
It has taken him over three seasons and 55 shots to do it, but Wijnaldum could not have picked a better time to get his first away-day goal.
The Dutchman fired Liverpool into the lead with a looping header.

Alderweireld missing a badge 
Tottenham fans have had to deal with months of speculation regarding the apparent want-away defender Toby Alderweireld. And the defender may have found a novel way to protest the club's refusal to let him leave.
Fans quickly noticed that Alderweireld's shirt was missing the Tottenham cockerel and the conjecture of social media was that it was a deliberate ploy. 
More likely, the glue used to stick the badge on just wasn't up to scratch. 

Vertonghen gets an eyeful 
Roberto Firmino was running down the right channel during the second-half when Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen poked him in the eye as they tussled for the ball.
Firmino stayed down and received on-field treatment before being withdrawn by Klopp and replaced by Jordan Henderson with around 20 minutes to go at Wembley. 
Jurgen Klopp said after the game: 'We don't know exactly in the moment.
'It's something with his eye. I only saw the situation from 60 yards away. For sure in the moment it's not comfortable for him.  
'He's not okay really at the moment. We need to see how that will work. Life is never perfect.'
