Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino paid tribute to Reds manager Jurgen Klopp after their 1-1 draw on Saturday.
The Argentine is one of the highest regarded managers in the English Premier League and was impressed with how Klopp took the game to Spurs on their own ground.
“We started to make some mistakes and we knew that Liverpool is a team that likes to run if you give them space with Mane, Firmino, Coutinho, Lallana or Wijnaldum who can damage you,” he said.
Liverpool outplayed Tottenham for long stretches of the game but just couldn’t bury the game with all their opportunities.
“I think that was little bit of a problem when the problem happened with Walker, but in the second half we had to take risks. They had some chances but not too much. I think we played much better.
“I am very pleased with the performance and the effort. It wasn’t easy.
“We played a team that played perfect counter-attack and the draw is a fair result.”
That last statement was a contentious one as most neutrals, as well as Klopp himself of course, couldn’t believe that Liverpool didn’t get the win they deserved.
