With the March international break allowing Tottenham Hotspur to draw a line under three defeats and a draw, the aim earlier today was to get back to winning ways as we travelled to Anfield to face Liverpool.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino would’ve been confident, although sensible going into the tie, as plenty was riding on it, but we know what Spurs are capable of when they fire and the travelling support was looking for another of those days.

It certainly didn’t start that way though as Roberto Firmino gave the hosts the lead 16 minutes in, but after a tactical tweak to our setup, we more worked our way into the game and a gritty performance once again saw us get our reward as Lucas Moura hit the leveller with 20 minutes remaining in the tie.

Neither side had great chances to be fair, but as the hosts pushed on inside of the final ten minutes, we caused problems of our own on the counter-attack and the difference in the performance between both halves was clear for all to see.

With the game seeming to turn in our direction, the sucker punch saw Toby Alderweireld credited with an own goal from a corner and the proverbial fat lady had sung.

Our second half showing didn’t deserve that.

  • Judging by the whole game with Liverpool better in the first half and better at end of the game, Liverpool just edged it.

  • Lloris is an absolute joke, how many times has he cost us points this season? A simple catch but no he has to push it on to Toby who had no chance. As for Sissoko, he has to go too, clean through with just the keeper to beat to win it and he skies it. The two of them are clowns. Forget top 4, with those two in the team we won’t even get 5th.

    • I thought Salah was offside for the header !! One must remember the saves lloris has made ,not just afew mistakes and at least sossoko drives forward instead of messing about at the back ,which we seem to do a lot!!
