A bit delayed but nevertheless here are just a few quick ramblings from Saturday’s game
As soon as news broke that Daniel Sturridge wasn’t going to play then I never thought we would actually lose the game as I couldn’t see Liverpool scoring but then you also wondered where the goals from Spurs would come from.
Liverpool did start well and for 15 minutes looked like a Jurgen Klopp side with high tempo and pressing but after that they faded away, with Origi’s header hitting the bar being their only real attacking threat.
I think the only way Liverpool were going to score is if Jurgen Klopp came off the bench himself.
Simon Mignolet was the difference between 1 point and 3 on Saturday from Spurs with two terrific saves from N’Jie and Kane.
Another clean sheet and also extending the unbeaten run now to 8 games – it’s just a shame it’s not saying 5 Wius and 3 Draws and not the other way around
Harry Kane looks a bit broken. 1 goal in 9 is a pretty poor return, chances that would have gone in last season are not this.
Thought Dembele played well in Centre Midfield, maybe even his best performance this season so far
Jan Vertonghen is looking pretty class again, really enjoying this Belgian Centre Back partnership and it looks like this long time problem area has finally been resolved.
Bournemouth away next Sunday in a game we should definitely be looking to win even with a Europa League hangover.
Fine margins now between 7th and where we could possibly be if we converted a few more of those draws into wins. With Chelsea stuttering this could be a real opportunity to break the top 4 again but it’s going to need goals to do it. COYS!
