Liverpool vs Tottenham
Liverpool and Tottenham went head-to-head in Sunday’s late kick-off.
After Man City beat Fulham 2-0 on Saturday, Liverpool had to pick up all three points vs Spurs if they wanted to return to the summit of the Premier League.
Tottenham, on the other hand, started the day in 3rd place but just one point away from 5th place Arsenal who play Newcastle on Monday.
Spurs had also failed to win any of their last four league games before Sunday’s clash.
Lloris’ blunder vs Liverpool
The first 45 was pretty poor from a Tottenham perspective with Liverpool dominating much of the half.
Liverpool’s dominance was eventually rewarded in the 16th minute as Roberto Firmino put them 1-0 up.
The second half saw the two sides roles very much reversed though with Tottenham looking the much brighter side.
Tottenham would eventually break down the Liverpool defence in the 70th minute through a Lucas strike.
However, in the build-up to the goal, it looked as though Harry Kane took a free-kick while the ball was moving.
Great team goal!
Harry Kane with the quick reaction and the exceptional cross-field ball.
Trippier with the sensational control, Eriksen with the pass, Moura with the finish.

Spurs were unable to hang on for a point though.
Mohamed Salah headed towards goal in injury time and Hugo Lloris parried it down to Toby Alderweireld who scored an own goal.
Lloris really should have done better though and as a result, he is being slated on social media.
Hugo Lloris in a big game, yet again. The guy is a liability.

How often does Lloris make errors in big games?
He seems to cost Spurs so many big points.

Hugo Lloris can no longer be seen as an elite goalkeeper after the season he has put down. On a side note, Thank You Hugo Massive 3 Points, well done Reds

Lloris is the worst ‘top rated’ keeper in world football. Makes all kinds of mistakes with alarming frequency.
