In what should have been the opening game at Tottenham’s brand new 62,000 seat stadium, Spurs stuttered to a 2-1 loss against Liverpool at Wembley today.
The defeat continues a run of sub par and tired-looking performances this season, including the three points dropped away to Watford last time out.
We look at five things we learned from the Liverpool game.
Set pieces are still an issue
After a big wake up call against Watford, where Tottenham blew a 1-0 lead after conceding twice to set pieces, you would think they would have learned their lesson. Apparently not.
After surviving an initial Liverpool onslaught, Spurs actually grew into the game quite nicely in the second portion of the first half, but yet again they found themselves undone by a corner.
This is a problem that Pochettino will need to address moving forward, or risk every team in the league playing for dead ball situations at Wembley.
