Liverpool player shows complete lack of respect to Spurs with Tweet

Liverpool were gifted all three points by Tottenham Hotspur in a crucial Premier League match which could have a huge significance for both teams come the end of the season.

Hugo Lloris’ 90th minute error saw him fail to handle Mo Salah’s cross and rather than gather the ball safely, he fumbled it onto the leg of Toby Alderweireld and into the back of the net.

After a poor display from Mauricio Pochettino’s side during the first half which saw Roberto Firminho nod his side ahead, Spurs looked far more threatening after the break.

Lucas Moura gave the visitors a well deserved equaliser when he benefitted from Harry Kane’s quick thinking.

Moussa Sissoko squandered a perfect opportunity to put Spurs in front late on, while Dele Alli also went close with a curling effort which ended up on the wrong side of the upright.

Despite this, Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold took to Twitter to claim that ‘We wanted it more’. An absolutely absurd statement from a side who had to benefit from a mistake to win a match.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Please…After the way Spurs stole an entirely undeserved point in last year’s game at Anfield, wherein they (Dele Ali, Kane and Lamella) spent most of the game flopping around on the floor like the day’s “catch” at the local fish pier, it was absolutely cosmic justice that they lost on an “OG”, yesterday. In last year’s game, it would have been more appropriate for them (The Tottenham Diving Team) to be wearing “Speedos”…lily-white…or otherwise. Every once in a while, the “footie gods” make amends for such transgressions. Yesterday was such a day…

  2. “We wanted it more” is a statement that never makes sense and in this particular situation tells you nothing about the nature of the match, the quality of play, the energy used or the incidental features that have made a game memorable. Have Liverpool “not wanted” to win the Premier League, or last season’s ECL final? Should they just have “wanted” whatever it was, more?
