Liverpool defeated Spurs at Anfield on Wednesday night 2-1 following an inspired performance.
Before the game got underway, there was a moment to reflect on the loss of former manager Gerard Houllier.
It wasn’t the only symbol during the game, though – the Reds had set up a new banner for the Frenchman, which sat proudly in the stands.
A simple gesture, but one with a lot of meaning as it read ‘Gerard’s heart beats‘ on the banner.
Take a look at the image below:

Gerard Houllier loved our Club, our city & our people. He reminded us who we are & what we are capable of. Amour et Merci, Gerard. P pic.twitter.com/nfMclgTpmu
