“Beyond unforgivable”, “This is not the Liverpool way” – Fans react to Tottenham 4-1 Liverpool

Liverpool supporters were left fuming as Jurgen Klopp‘s side fell to a miserable 4-1 defeat away to top-four rivals Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham 4-1 Liverpool

Premier League, Wembley
October 22, 2017

Goals: Kane 4′ & 56′, Son 12′, Alli 45+3′; Salah 24′

A brace from Harry Kane and goals from former Reds targets Heung-min Son and Dele Alli consigned the visitors to a dismal loss, with Mohamed Salah‘s first-half strike a mere consolation.

After an encouraging 0-0 draw with Man United, and an excellent 7-0 win away to Maribor, Sunday’s clash could have given Liverpool an extra boost as they looked to turn around a poor run.

Ultimately, their victory in the Champions League proved to be an anomaly, with Klopp’s side now having taken all three points just two times in their last 10 outings.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s 4-1 loss at Spurs on Twitter, Facebook and our forums.


Fans were pleased to see Milner keep his place…

“Milner keeps his place and deservedly so. Alongside Hendo and Can, that’s a strong midfield behind our 3 attacking gems.”

SirBillShankly on the forums.


Kane scored due to some awful defending on four minutes…

“Lovren looked like he’d just been woken up. Pathetic defending.”

Yo55arian22 on the forums.


And Lovren was at it again as Son made it 2-0…

“I’ll drive Lovren back to Croatia right now.”

Genius on the forums.

“We honestly would be better off with Gomez at the back. The lad will make mistakes as he learns, but Lovren is just a calamity game after game.”

Zinedine Biscan on the forums.


Salah’s goal reduced the deficit…

“Really good ball from Hendo. Classic Salah finish – untidy and scruffy but it goes in!”

Krimson on the forums.


Klopp was praised when Lovren was subbed on the half-hour…

“Is that the moment Klopp finally woke up to how shit Lovren actually is.”

But Alli’s volley saw the half end at 3-1…

“Game over for us!”

Mignolet was at fault for Kane’s second…

“We need to go out in January and spend big money on a goal keeper and two centre backs.

Everything else is fine. But we’re going into boxing matches with one hand tied behind our backs.”

Mascot88 on the forums.


And frustration reigned as full-time brought a 4-1 loss…

“Every good aspect Liverpool had last season has gone. Can’t beat the top sides now, 5-0 against City, 4-1 against Spurs and say what you want, but we still never beat United.”

James Critchley on Facebook.

“Out played by a good team.
Harry Kane was unplayable.
Bored, Tired and frustrated by seeing the same mistakes every week.
This is not the Liverpool way.
Clear the garbage and make some ruthless decision Klopp.”

indianscouser on the forums.

“I don’t know what’s worse. Listening to Gary Neville commentating or watching that performance, but what I will say is Neville is 100% right. How is that goalkeeper and those defenders still at that football club? Wouldn’t happen at any other top club.”

John Gardner on Facebook.
