Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

Premier League – Anfield – Saturday 2nd April 2016

Goals: Coutinho (51); Kane (63)

An enthralling match at Anfield saw both the Reds and Spurs take home a point apiece.

Harry Kane cancelled out Philippe Coutinho‘s beautifully-worked opener, and despite some late chances for either side, a winner could not be found.

The draw probably sees Liverpool’s top-four chances ended, but there were positives to take against a talented Spurs outfit.

The team news was released an hour before kick-off, and as is the norm these days, supporters had their tactical and statistical hats on:

Mamadou Sakho had a very shaky, error-strewn first-half, and fans expressed their frustrations with the Frenchman:

After a tight, goalless first-half, social media gave its assessment of the opening 45 minutes:


Rob Anderson:

Henderson tidying up nicely at the back a few times. Sakho and Can can’t decide if they’re world class or Sunday league. Coutinho and Lallana looking dangerous.

Marcin Kostka:

Lovren and Milner the best so far. Sakho very shaky.

There was delirium when Coutinho opened the scoring:

Kane’s emphatic finish robbed Liverpool of all three points, but there was still plenty of positivity among supporters after the final whistle:



Some awfully shaky defending, notably in the first half (Sakho had a ‘mare, and Moreno was all over the shop as well) contrasted by some absolutely LOVELY play in attack.
