One of the most dynamic games, as well as the derby since the start of the season in the Premier League, was directed by Tottenham and Liverpool at the new White Hart Lane. Fire from the start, four regular, two canceled goals, and a great return of the Reds to the winning path.
When it was hardest, they showed what they were made of. "A great match, of incredible intensity. We scored goals at the right moments, they were given by those who needed it the most." "What I saw on the field today is us.
Especially in the second half. "We watched a fierce fight and quality football above all," said Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp after the game. The Reds scored a goal in the photo finish of the first half, and the chances doubled at the very start of the second half.
Both goals came after the mistakes of the rival. A difficult goal-directed by Sadio Mane was preceded by a weak intervention by Joe Rodon, but in addition to all that, it is clear that the champion of England outplayed the host.
Klopp is satisfied
As we said above, One of the most dynamic games, as well as the derby since the start of the season in the Premier League, was directed by Tottenham and Liverpool at the new White Hart Lane. "I'm not familiar with the numbers, but I don't think they had a lot of balls in their legs.
We were constantly fast, quality in the counters, the complete edition was great." "I saw the things I wanted to see. We were often in a position to surround their penalty area and the pressure was really good. " If there are any stains in Liverpool's comeback victory in which the Reds broke the goal-scoring post of the 482nd minute, then it is certainly the injury of Joel Matip, who did not come out on the field in the second half.
From the start of the season, the position of the central defender is the most sensitive, having in mind the injuries of Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and currently the universal soldier Fabinho "It is an injury to the ligaments of the joint," Klopp commented briefly after asking about the seriousness of the injury.
Liverpool could probably return to the form they were in and this victory can only be an additional motive for them to fight for the champion. This season it will be much harder than the previous ones because it seems that the league is much stronger than before and that the teams are much more competitive.
If we take into account the injuries of important players in defensive positions, Klopp is doing a great job for now and who knows what will happen by the end of the season
