Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp appeared to hit out at Tottenham’s ‘game plan’ after the Lilywhites battled their way to a crucial draw at Anfield. A point apiece simultaneously boosted Spurs’ hopes of clinching fourth spot and dented the Reds’ aspirations to pip Manchester City to the Premier League trophy. 

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham side put up a stern front at Anfield, shutting Liverpool out until the 74th minute after edging ahead through Heung-min Son. The South Korean’s tap-in was extremely well-worked, and leaves him just two goals behind Reds superstar Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot. 

Luis Diaz notched an equaliser for Liverpool late on, but Klopp clearly felt as though his side needed three points to maintain a good chance of beating City to the league title. The two teams are now level on points, although the Sky Blues will have a chance at a three-point buffer when they host Newcastle United on Sunday. 

After the final whistle, Klopp told BT Sport: “The dressing room is not flying in this moment. But come on, something like this can always happen. There are other games to play, we just have to keep going.

“I wish we could have won this game, but with all the praise for Tottenham – they sit back. They drew against us, got results against Man City and Chelsea. The game plan works for these games but they are still fifth. Time wasting, these kind of things, it makes it easier for them. We wanted three points, that’s not so cool.”
