Tottenham Hotspur left Anfield yesterday evening with nothing to show for their second half performance in what could be a pivotal moment come the end of the season.
It was Jurgen Klopp’s side who kept their title tilt on track courtesy of a Hugo Lloris defeat.
Spurs looked as if they would head back to London with a vital point for the game, only for their goalkeeper to produce yet another howler when he failed to hold Mo Salah’s cross which saw the ball hit Toby Alderweireld and end up in the back of the net.
The situation could have been somewhat different had midfielder Moussa Sissoko put his side ahead with a perfect opportunity to find the back of the net when the score was level at 1-1.
Sissoko found himself alongside Heung-min Son in a two on one situation against Liverpool defender Virgil van Dyke and despite having a clear shot on goal from fifteen yards out, managed to blaze the ball over the crossbar in typical fashion.
The midfielder has since been quoted in the French media after the match as blaming himself for the defeat.
