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.

Although he was only used for 15 minutes or so, Heung-Min Son did look lively on his return to action after winning a gold medal with South Korea at the Asia Games.
The winger injected a bit of much-needed pace into the team, and should have been awarded a penalty in the dying seconds to give Spurs a chance to level the match.
He wasn't able to deliver today, but Son could be pivotal in the coming weeks with a faltering and fatigued Harry Kane struggling to lead the line.
