Tottenham Hotspur put in a gutsy display at Anfield against Liverpool yesterday afternoon but their performance wasn’t enough to come away with any points.
Spurs took the lead early on through Harry Kane but from that point on, it was the hosts who dominated proceedings and fashioned several clear cut chances.
Former Spurs midfielder Micky Hazard took to social media after the match to reveal his disappointment at the result but admitted that Jurgen Klopp’s side were the much better team.
The 59-year-old rued Son Heung-min’s missed opportunity to double Tottenham’s lead early in the second half when he struck the woodwork after rounding Alisson Becker in the Liverpool goal.
Liverpool deserved the win, on the day far the better team. If Son don’t hit the bar it’s 2-0 but hey the better team won. Hate saying it but we were outplayed today COYSSSSSSS

Liverpool went on to equalise just minutes after Son’s miss and Mohamed Salah eventually struck the winning goal from the penalty spot after Serge Aurier was deemed to have fouled Sadio Mane.
Spurs did respond well to going behind and had a couple of chances late in the game to equalise but failed to make them count.
Spurs Web Opinion
A 2-1 loss isn’t the worst result in the world for Spurs considering both sides’ contrasting form going into the game.
Erik Lamela was a big miss as the Argentine would have been a perfect option for a game like this. Overall, there are enough positives to take including the performances of Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso in the final 10-15 minutes.
