Liverpool lead Tottenham 1-0 at the half time interval in what has been an entertaining game so far.
Pochettino set the team up with a back 5, Moussa Sissoko as the midfielder anchor partnering Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, behind Lucas Moura and Harry Kane up front.
Tottenham started the game well and looked to be in control of the contest but the Reds took the lead against the run of play when Roberto Firmino headed in a lovely cross by Andrew Robertson.
Liverpool have threatened to double the lead several times since then but Spurs have remained strong at the back.
While Tottenham have also had their moments, they have so far let themselves down in the final third.
Some Spurs fans weren’t too happy with the performances of some of their offensive players with Eriksen, in particular, coming in for some flak on social media.
Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the first half-performance:
Eriksen couldn’t look less interested if he tried

Do not wish to be reactionary but cannot initially recall a #thfc player ‘falling off’ quite as much as Christian Eriksen rn.

Utter arrogance to set up the way we did at the start and we’ve paid for it.
Another individual error (I’ve lost count) in a big game doesn’t help.

Eriksen's head is in Madrid and his feet are in Accrington Stanley
