Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has come to criticize Tottenham Hotspur’s style of play following a 1-1 draw on Saturday. The result represented a blow to the Reds’ title hopes, as Manchester City sent back top after beating Newcastle United the next day 5:0. Klopp’s men looked flat in attacks, with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson slinging plenty of hopeful crosses into the penalty area with no success.
Jurgen Klopp frustrated by Spurs Pattern
Despite all of their possession, it was Spurs who arguably had the better chances. Son Heung-min put the visitors in front before Liverpool newest signing who is arguably the most informed Liverpool player currently Luis Diaz equalized with 20 minutes left.
After the game, Jurgen Klopp said: “For all the praise for Tottenham, they won against Manchester City the gameplay works for these games but they are still fifth and for everything they were time-wasting – it makes not easier, it’s smart but not easy.”
The manager was however disappointed with the game plan of the North London side, as their game plan frustrated the Liverpool game and they could hardly make any hard way in the attack. They played a total of 22 shots with only three of those shots meeting the target. Liverpool dominated the game but could bit win the game as Antonio Conte did well to organize his defense very well to prevent them from scoring.
