Jurgen Klopp slates Tottenham’s approach after Anfield thriller


Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has, late on Sunday, aimed a less-than-subtle dig at Tottenham Hotspur.

This comes after the Reds, a short time ago, played their part in one of the games of the Premier League season, against Spurs.

After welcoming Ryan Mason’s men to Anfield, Liverpool raced into a three-goal advantage inside the opening quarter of an hour, courtesy of strikes on the part of all of Curtis Jones, Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah.

Spurs, to their credit, though, soon worked their way back into proceedings, pulling one back through Harry Kane late in the first-half.

This, in turn, was followed by Son Heung-min adding a 2nd for the visitors, before, incredibly, Richarlison looked to have done enough to clinch a share of the spoils with his first of the Premier League season deep into injury-time.

In almost unfathomable scenes, however, there was still time for one more twist, as a needless Lucas Moura mistake opened the door for Diogo Jota to nip in and slide a last-gasp winner beyond Fraser Forster.

On the back of a memorable evening of action coming to a close on Merseyside, Jurgen Klopp, in turn, was asked for his thoughts on the showing of the day’s visitors.

And Liverpool’s boss, as alluded to above, was keen to make use of the opportunity to make his frustrations with Tottenham known.

In a jibe at the approach utilised by the north Londoners at Anfield, Klopp sniped:

“Spurs have to play better football. They can’t just counter-attack, they have to play better football with that team.”
