“A draw is a good result against Tottenham, but not today” – Liverpool fans react to draw at Spurs

Liverpool traveled to White Hart Lane for their final Premier League clash ahead of the international break and secured a 1-1 draw against Spurs.

Joel Matip made his Premier League debut for the Reds and impressed as Philippe Coutinho returned to the starting XI.

Daniel Sturridge was a sunken figure on the bench as Roberto Firmino was given the nod ahead of the England striker and James Milner continued his duties at left-back.

The game started with a good tempo as both teams looked to attack early on and Coutinho could’ve put Liverpool ahead within ten minutes.

The Reds were on top in the first half but despite several chances they were unable to convert until Firmino was brought down to give Liverpool a deserved penalty.

The deadlock was broken when James Milner fired the spot-kick into the back of the Spurs’ net and Liverpool continued to attack fearlessly with Sadio Mane impressing once again.

A disallowed goal in the 55th minute could’ve doubled the Reds’ lead but it was Tottenham who scored the next despite Liverpool’s dominance.

Danny Rose fired in the Spurs equaliser as Liverpool fans rued the earlier chances that were missed and Klopp’s side had to settle for a point.

Here’s all the best reaction to the draw.

“What a debut from Matip. Calm, assured, fearless and robust when he needs to be. Looks skinny and thin, but has a good brain on them shoulders.”

“Good result. Should have been better. Shame about last week’s result against Burnley, makes this week’s seem worse.”
