Five things we learned from the loss to Liverpool

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

Picture 1 of 5

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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We don’t seem to learn anything in my book. Eric Dier is still not good enough, how did Rose stay on the pitch and Vorm should head for the exit.
    Buying nobody was also a mistake. Even when we do buy players we leave it to the last minute which means they’re not ready for the start of the season.

  2. Lamela, Son and Lucas seem to be the only ones who want to win. They give their all and the rest just sloppy jobs. I spent $80 so I could watch Tottenham play in the champions league. Playing the way they have, I can see it will be a waste of money. Definitely don’t see them in the champions league next year. Going to be a bad season.

  3. Kane almost a passenger for every game. Son roaring through his last eight games at international level, achieving great things, and Poch brings him on for a 15-minute cameo “to ease him back”? Why even bother? — It would be easier to ignore Son altogether if Poch is that lame-brained.

  4. Was at the game and Vorm saved us from a hiding second half. Yes, he should have done better with the first goal. Tis all down to Eriksen heading back and being shite all season thus far.

    Yep: Dier was Dire (se what I did there), lol. Long season ahead and I think we just need to start looking at how many points far we are behind 4th spot even now.

    We just cannot compete spending wise with the Citeh’s, Psg,s and Pool’s of this world unless we get taken over by mil/billionaire’s. C’est La Vie. But there is summat worthwhile that the above mentioned clubs cannot still buy the champions league. A win against Brighton and Cardiff will put us back on track. COYS
