Heung-min Son has admitted that he ‘couldn’t run anymore’ towards the end of Tottenham’s draw with Liverpool. 

Both sides played out an all-action 2-2 draw on Sunday, in what was Tottenham’s first game in two weeks following a host of Covid-related postponements. 

Harry Kane opened the scoring after just six minutes before a Diogo Jota header for the visitors levelled the score with Spurs left ruing a flurry of missed chances. 

Liverpool took the lead midway through the second-half through Andy Robertson before Son then equalised for Spurs after capitalising on an Alisson error. 

Although the points were shared, the encounter proved to be one of the games of the season with the match being played at such a frantic pace. 

Spurs were made to work hard against a side challenging for the title, but the side’s relentless running and training under Antonio Conte continued to shine through. 

After proceedings, Son revealed just how much the game took it out of him and expressed his annoyance at not being able to secure the win having missed a number of chances. 

He told Premier League Productions (December 19, 6:45 pm): “It was an intense game. It was really, really hard.

“At the end of the game, I was like, ‘I couldn’t run anymore’. Even that intense game makes you really enjoy the game.

“But I am really disappointed. I feel sorry for the team that I had because we had so many opportunities to kill the game.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Teams usually have to work very hard against Liverpool to get a result and Spurs did just that on Sunday. They fought until the end and pressed every ball, which is a testament to how much Conte has been working them in training. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come.
