Club career[edit]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

Livermore's career started in Tottenham's Academy in 2006 making 39 appearances for the Under-18 team and scoring 9 goals. He made another 13 appearances for the Reserves. He made his debut with the first team in a friendly match against Stevenage Borough in July 2007. On 29 February 2008 he joined Milton Keynes Dons on a month-long loan deal.[4] He made his professional debut the following day in a 1–0 win over Chester City at stadium mk, playing the last 14 minutes in place of Jordan Hadfield.[5] Livermore played five matches for the League Two team, all as a substitute.

On 11 July 2008, he was loaned for six months to League One side Crewe Alexandra.[6] However, in a friendly with Conference Premier side Wrexham, he fractured his fibula and subsequently returned to Tottenham to receive treatment which kept him sidelined for a protracted spell.[7] Livermore signed a new two-year deal with Tottenham on 24 July 2009 and, on the same day, he scored his first goal for Spurs, a header in a 1–1 friendly draw against Barcelona in the Wembley Cup. In a post-game interview, when asked by a reporter, "What is it like to score against the best team in the world?", Livermore replied "Score against the best team in the world? I play for them."; a comment welcomed by many Tottenham fans.

He joined Championship team Derby County on an initial one-month loan on 10 August 2009.[8] He scored his first league goal against Nottingham Forest in a 3–2 away defeat on the 29th.[9] In January 2010, he joined another team in the division, Peterborough United, until the end of the 2009–10 season.[10] He scored his first goal for Peterborough in a 2–1 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on 23 January.[11] On 2 March he was recalled from his loan due to a spate of injuries to the Tottenham squad. Livermore made his competitive debut for Tottenham in a 2–1 win against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on 20 March, coming on in added time for Niko Kranjčar.[12]

On 23 September 2010, he was loaned out to Championship club Ipswich Town until January.[13] On 24 March 2011 he was loaned out to Leeds United of the same division ahead of their final eight league games and battle for promotion to the Premier League.[14] On 2 April, Livermore made his debut for Leeds as a second-half substitute against Nottingham Forest where he had a hand in Leeds' fourth goal scored by Max Gradel.[15] He was given a start against Reading however he was substituted at half time after picking up a yellow card and lucky not to receive another for a tackle in the first half.[16]

Livermore stayed with Tottenham 2011–12 season, scoring his first senior goal for Spurs on 18 August 2011 in the 5–0 UEFA Europa League qualifying win away against Heart of Midlothian,[17] and ultimately made 38 appearances across all competitions.

Livermore moved to Hull City at the beginning of 2013-14 on a season-long loan, along with teammate Tom Huddlestone.[18] He made his debuton the first day of the season when he came off the bench for Danny Graham in the 59th minute of a 2–0 loss away at Chelsea.[19] On 1 December, he scored his first Premier League and Hull goal, opening a 3–1 home win over Liverpool with a shot deflecting off Martin Škrtel, Hull's first ever victory over the Merseyside opponents.[20]

Hull reached the 2014 FA Cup Final , and Livermore started the game against Arsenal, which resulted in a 3–2 defeat at Wembley Stadium after extra time.[21] In the close season he joined Hull permanently for an undisclosed fee,[22] one which was reported to have broken the club transfer record.[23]

Following a 2-0 win against Crystal Palace in April 2015, Livermore was selected for a random drugs test. He tested positive for cocaine and, on 15 May 2015, was suspended by both the FA and Hull City for the remainder of the season.[24][25][26]

Livermore made his first senior appearance for England in a 2–1 friendly win against Italy on 15 August 2012 at the Stade de Suisse in Bern, coming on as a substitute in the 69th minute for Frank Lampard.[27]
