Klopp Thumbs Up Liverpool Performance Against Tottenham

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has reflected on his team’s 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, September 30 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Curtis Jones was shown a red card in the 26th minute of the first half after his studs caught Tottenham midfielder Yves Bissouma.

Diaz thought he scored for the Reds in the 34th minute but the goal was ruled out due to offside.

Heung-Min Son scored the first goal of the game in the 36th minute and Dutchman Cody equalised for Liverpool 13 minutes later.

Joel Matip’s own goal in the 96th minute gave Spurs the win.

The win saw Spurs maintain their impressive run this season.

Speaking in the post match conference Klopp said that the Reds played well despite the early red card.

“I don’t think there is anything to say about the offside goal, I knew it at halftime,” liverpoolfc.com quoted Klopp as saying.

“In the first moment I saw it, it’s clearly not offside but then it’s offside, so I try to think they had a better view and at halftime we knew. With normal pictures, (it’s) easy to see now. But (I’m) pretty sure whoever did that, made that decision didn’t do it on purpose.

“Yes absolutely. I told the boys directly after the game I am super proud. I think especially with 10 men they were really good, did everything that was necessary really well.

“We created still so that’s good, top for us; red card for Curtis, probably everybody in the room thinks it’s a clear red card , I see that different, just because I played football and most of you probably didn’t.”

Liverpool are currently fourth on the Premier League table with 16 points after seven games.

Up next for the Reds is a Europa League game against Belgian Pro League side Union Saint-Gilloise on Thursday, October 5 the the Anfield Stadium.

They have won the Premier League 19 times.
