Spurs-Liverpool talking points

Sky Sports - lør, 15/09/2018 - 16:38
We pick out five talking points from Liverpool's 2-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium as Jurgen Klopp's side maintained their perfect start to the season to stay top of the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Liverpool: Premier League – as it happened

Guardian - lør, 15/09/2018 - 16:10

Liverpool dominated for most of the game as goals from Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino extended their perfect start – but Spurs pulled one back and had a penalty appeal in stoppage time

3.10pm BST

That’s it from me – I’ll leave you with Danny Taylor’s match report. Thanks for joining me, bye for now.

3.08pm BST

Here’s Jürgen Klopp: “We were the deserved winner of that game today. They could have scored a second goal at the end but for 85 minutes, we were dominant.”

“Coming back from abroad, having one training session and sticking to our plan so well, I was really impressed. We had to be compact in midfield, because Spurs are strong playing between the lines.”

3.00pm BST

It’s actually Pochettino up first, and he’s a little spikier than usual, suggesting Spurs should have had a late penalty.

“They were the better team. We competed, we were close – and it should have been a penalty at the end, Mané on Son. We were so far away, not in terms of the result, but the performance. We need to be more consistent. I am not worried, I promise you – we need to win, we need to work. We will try and find a solution.”

2.52pm BST

Hoping to get a few words from Jürgen Klopp after the latest slew of betting ads. The big man should be in good form after winning at Wembley for the first time.

2.39pm BST

The next month will continue to test Liverpool’s growing title credentials. They host PSG and Southampton in the next week, then Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, before a brutal eight days as we head into October – Chelsea (A), Napoli (A), Manchester City (H). If they still have a perfect league record after that, they’ll be favourites.

2.35pm BST

Here’s Danny Taylor’s match report:

2.32pm BST

Spurs won’t play at Wembley again until 3 October, when they face Barcelona – these are their fixtures before then:

18 Sept: Inter (A), Champions League
22 Sept: Brighton (A), Premier League
26 Sept: Watford (H), Carabao Cup (at MK Dons)
29 Sept: Huddersfield (A), Premier League

2.29pm BST

Lamela’s goal and that late penalty shout disguised what was a bad day for Spurs. They never had a coherent plan, and could have had few complaints if they had lost by four or five goals.

As for Liverpool, Klopp will rightly be annoyed by their wastefulness in front of goal, but they were the better team from the first minute, and passed their first big test of their title ambitions in impressive fashion.

Leaving Wembley and absolutely fuming with Liverpool. Should have won 10-0.

2.24pm BST

It’s faintly absurd that Liverpool only won by one goal, but win they did, and deservedly so. They’re top of the table, with five wins from five.

2.22pm BST

95 mins: Rose launches it into the box, and it rebounds to Son, who should probably hit it first time, but tries to open up a better angle in the area. Mané makes contact with his heel and Son goes over – he looked slightly off-balance, and doesn’t appeal.

Replays suggest Mané might have got away with one, but it’s a difficult call for the referee to make. VAR, anyone?

2.22pm BST

94 mins: Eriksen’s delivery from deep is cleared. Spurs will have one more chance from a long throw...

2.21pm BST

94 mins: Van Dijk concedes a clumsy foul, and Spurs have a free kick. How on earth have Liverpool not closed this game out?!

2.20pm BST

And from it, Spurs get within a goal! Lamela chests the cross down at the far post, and lashes the ball into the opposite corner!

2.20pm BST

92 mins: Two of the five added minutes played, and Spurs force a corner, Rose’s shot deflected behind...

2.18pm BST

90 mins: Mané fires high and wide with Wijnaldum in support. Wijnaldum and Milner have been terrific in midfield – they’ve been everywhere.

2.17pm BST

89 mins: This game is drifting to a close as the Liverpool fans entertain themselves in the away end. Joel Matip is on for Alexander-Arnold, with Gomez shifting to right back.

2.16pm BST

There’s a choice crop of 3pm fixtures this afternoon – Newcastle v Arsenal and Manchester City v Fulham among them. Join Barry Glendenning for the clockwatch straight after this:

2.14pm BST

“Just a quick one to say credit to Liverpool,” says Alistair Donegan. “Poch got formation and personnel all wrong - three slow centre mids and no Son - and Liverpool have destroyed us. Expect it to be 3-0 by the time I press send.”

On the bright side, it’s still only 2-0.

2.13pm BST

85 mins: And here’s why – Lamela gets a yard of space 12 yards out, and is inches from cutting the deficit in half! Liverpool have had 12 shots on target; Spurs have had one.

2.12pm BST

84 mins: Salah is eager to get on the scoresheet and tries the same trick again, with Sturridge in space. Klopp is furious with him.

2.11pm BST

83 mins: Salah slaloms through the Spurs defence but can’t get any power on his shot...

2.10pm BST

82 mins: Two more changes – Wanyama, back from a knee injury, is on for Eric Dier. For Liverpool, Daniel Sturridge replaces Keita.

2.08pm BST

80 mins: Vorm saves well from Salah, who cuts onto his left foot as Liverpool walk through the Spurs midfield again. Moments later, Mané fires a weak shot at Vorm.

2.07pm BST

“Harry Kane looks completely out of sorts, like he’s carrying an injury,” says Kari Tulinius. “When he’s fit he can be relied on to convert half-chances and get himself in dangerous positions – but on current form he’s nearly a passenger.”

It was noticeable from that Eriksen cross – it wasn’t straightforward, but Kane at his sharpest would be burying that.

2.04pm BST

76 mins: Those stoppages have taken what edge there was out of the game. Now Dier is down and getting treatment.

2.02pm BST

As tweeted to me by Tony Cowards (possibly not his real name), Alderweireld’s shirt doesn’t have a Spurs badge on it. Anyone know why?

2.01pm BST

70 mins: Klopp isn’t happy on the touchline – Henderson was about to come on for Keita, but Firmino is down after being poked in the eye by Vertonghen. It seems he’s been told he can’t change the substitution – although eventually, Henderson does come on for Firmino. For Spurs, Son is on in place of Harry Winks.

1.56pm BST

68 mins: Lamela looks to set Lucas free with a long free kick, but the Brazilian is offside. He is looking like Spurs’ biggest threat, dropping into that space between Gomez and Alexander-Arnold.

1.54pm BST

66 mins: Chance! Kane has struggled to get involved, but has a sniff here as Eriksen lashes a cross-shot across goal. It’s behind him and he swings a heel at it, but doesn’t get enough contact.

1.53pm BST

65 mins: Lucas tries a slide-rule pass to Trippier, but he’s 20 yards away.

1.51pm BST

63 mins: Liverpool break upfield, three on two, Mané strolling forward with Salah and Keita in tow. He opts to play in the latter, and Vorm tips his shot over the bar. He should have scored, and this could get embarrassing for Spurs.

1.50pm BST

62 mins: Gary Neville is absolutely roasting Joe Gomez for a minor, inconsequential lapse of concentration.

1.48pm BST

61 mins: A Liverpool free-kick leads to a goalmouth melee, but Vorm manages to reel the ball in under pressure.

Would Spurs be significantly worse/the same/not much different if Dier went in goal and Worm played in midfield?

1.47pm BST

60 mins: Dembele is coming off, replaced by Erik Lamela. As it stands, Tottenham’s midfield consists of Harry Winks, but I assume they’ll reorganise.

1.44pm BST

56 mins: It’s looking very much like five league wins from five for Liverpool. So – is this Their Year?

1.43pm BST

Liverpool build up slowly before Robertson finds Mané down the left. He tears past Trippier and fires in a low cross that’s turned onto the post by Vertonghen. Vorm flaps clumsily at the rebound, allowing Firmino to tap in from about an inch out.

1.41pm BST

Liverpool double their lead, Vorm not covering himself in glory again as Firmino toe-pokes home!

1.39pm BST

50 mins: Spurs hit the post! Lucas looks isolated near the left-hand touchline but bustles past Gomez, finds space suddenly opening up, and pings a shot off the near post! That would have been very much against the run of play.

1.37pm BST

49 mins: Vorm rescues Spurs here though, saving well from Mané after Salah had eased Dembele off the ball! A lively start to this second half...

1.36pm BST

48 mins: Almost a second weird goal for Liverpool, as Robertson’s mishit cross pings off the bar. Vorm was nowhere near it.

1.35pm BST

47 mins: Gomez nearly lets Lucas in from nowhere, but he can’t sort his feet out as Van Dijk sprints back, and the ball bobbles through to Alisson.

1.34pm BST

46 mins: Dier has dropped into the back three, on the right hand side.

1.32pm BST

The second half is go. No changes at half-time for either team.

1.28pm BST

Surely Spurs have to get Son Heung-min on, sooner rather than later?

1.26pm BST

Tottenham look like they're at the end of a long season @niallmcveigh. Not good news when so many players look jaded / burned out in September. I understand why, but, if I can, why couldn't Poch and Levy a couple of months ago? Of course, it end up 4-1, but I doubt it.

1.16pm BST

Giorginio Wijnaldum’s first away goal in the Premier League gives Liverpool a deserved half-time lead. More soon.

1.15pm BST

45 mins: One added minute. Vorm has to race off his line to clear Keita’s through ball to Mané, who was in acres.

1.15pm BST

44 mins: Spurs haven’t really tested Alisson, but have also left space in behind. Not ideal, and if Liverpool had been more clinical, they would be two or three behind.

1.13pm BST

42 mins: Milner kickstarts another dangerous Liverpool break, playing Wijnaldum in down the right. He has Firmino in support but delays his decision, then shoots weakly across goal.

1.12pm BST

41 mins: That’s the fifth goal Spurs have conceded in the league, and all of them have been headers.

1.11pm BST

Milner swings in the corner, and Vorm makes an awful hash of the punch, spilling it across goal. Dier heads clear, but Wijnaldum heads it back on target. Vorm paws it away, but the ball was a foot over the line!

1.09pm BST

Liverpool lead from a corner, and Michel Vorm has to carry the can for this one.

1.07pm BST

36 mins: Now Spurs have a chance to break – both teams seem determined to play on the counter – and Vertonghen has Kane and Lucas ahead of him. Instead he tries to lob Alisson from 40 yards. Do I not like that, Pochettino says with his eyes.

1.06pm BST

34 mins: Keita intercepts in midfield and Mané can run at the back four – but he stumbles and can only scuff a shot that Vorm saves easily.

1.03pm BST

32 mins: Keita bursts into space down the left but his cut-back is intercepted. Both sides are struggling to find the killer pass here.

1.00pm BST

30 mins: Spurs are more threatening now, Eriksen getting in behind on the right and trying to pick out Lucas in the middle. Liverpool clear for a corner which Van Dijk thunks away.

12.58pm BST

28 mins: Eriksen lines it up but opts to swing the free kick towards the far corner, where Alisson collects.

12.57pm BST

27 mins: Sublime touch from Trippier, cushioning a long ball straight into Eriksen’s path. His cross is cut out, and from the corner, Mané bundles Eriksen over, handing Spurs a free kick, two yards outside the box...

12.56pm BST

25 mins: Spurs string together an attacking move without ever really getting the ball under control, Lucas’s ball-juggling skills eventually setting up Kane, who tries and fails to sneak round the outside of Van Dijk.

12.54pm BST

23 mins: Salah breaks down the right and slides the ball into Firmino, who is crowded out as he tries to get a shot away. Spurs are leaving a big gap in front of their centre-backs, and need to close it pronto.

12.52pm BST

21 mins: As if by magic, Dier’s iffy back pass puts Salah through on his left foot – but under pressure from Trippier, his shot is too central and pushed away by Vorm!

Related: If Tottenham’s carelessness continues they could pay a heavy price | Jonathan Wilson

12.50pm BST

20 mins: Salah tries to trick Rose with a dummy, but the full-back isn’t fooled. I can’t believe I’m daring to say this, but Salah has been quiet.

12.49pm BST

18 mins: Trippier is penalised for a foul on Mané in the Liverpool area, before Alisson and Van Dijk almost get in a muddle playing out from the back.

12.47pm BST

17 mins: Mané looks for Alexander-Arnold with a diagonal ball, but slips and sends it sailing out of play.

12.46pm BST

15 mins: One of those through passes is cut out by the onrushing Alisson, who belts the ball out for a throw-in.

12.44pm BST

13 mins: Spurs have settled down after that rough start. Their midfield are working hard to win possession, then looking for long balls in behind towards Kane and Lucas. It’s not quite coming off so far.

12.42pm BST

11 mins: Dier does well to dispossess Keita in midfield and Spurs threaten to break, but Van Dijk steps in to break up the attack.

12.40pm BST

Looking at that disallowed goal again, Firmino might feel a bit miffed with Mané – if he had left the ball alone, he might not have been considered ‘active’, and it was probably going in anyway.

12.39pm BST

9 mins: Tottenham free kick 30 yards out on the right, whipped in by Trippier towards Alderweireld, who is a yard offside.

12.38pm BST

8 mins: Spurs have lined up with a back four, and a midfield diamond. That’s leaving Danny Rose to deal with Mo Salah and Alexander-Arnold down the right.

12.37pm BST

6 mins: A first foray upfield for Spurs, Eriksen chasing a long ball and half-heartedly appealing for a penalty after a tangle with Gomez.

12.36pm BST

5 mins: Alexander-Arnold gets the free-kick over the wall and dipping sharply, but it’s straight at Vorm.

12.35pm BST

4 mins: Firmino collects the ball, wriggles free of his marker and finds Mané, who is fouled down the left. Liverpool’s front three not messing around, here.

12.34pm BST

2 mins: Liverpool attack again down that right-hand side, and Firmino pings a shot wide. Very early warning signs for Spurs here.

12.32pm BST

Milner races down the right, cuts back and whips in a terrific left-footed cross and Firmino turns the ball into the corner – but Mané, trying to get a decisive touch in the middle, is flagged offside.

12.30pm BST

Liverpool, in all-red and playing from right to left, kick off with Wembley still filling up.

12.23pm BST

A word or two from Klopp on Henderson – he’s being saved for Tuesday’s Champions League tie against PSG, but will likely come off the bench.

Liverpool skipper makes way as Klopp eyes the UCL tie v PSG: "I don't think it makes sense in the moment to play him. We're still adapting to the intensity, Hendo needs his full physical strength. I'm sure he'll have that today when he comes on and on Tuesday as well." #LFC

12.19pm BST

It seems from the warm-ups that Spurs might go with a back three, with Eric Dier dropping into defence. That would put a lot of pressure on Winks and Dembélé in central midfield.

12.17pm BST

If you’re familiar with the fine work of Bands FC, you’ll know that for them, today’s fixture is Chas & Dave v Echo & The Bunnymen. Only one winner there, I’m afraid.

12.05pm BST

Here’s Poch!

On Watford: “The players were so disappointed – our performance wasn’t great. Today is a different game, we’re playing a very good team, we’re trying to win. Most important is the performance, showing the right attitude.”

On Winks: “In the circumstances, with an international break, he’s been training really well. It’s a great opportunity for him, to be in the starting eleven more consistently. He’s a great player.”

12.00pm BST

Among those 10 things, Michael Butler has neatly summarised just how rough September has been for Spurs so far:

Defeat at Watford was followed by landing in Barcelona’s Champions League group, Daniel Levy confirming more costly delays to the new stadium and a night in Milton Keynes. Dele Alli got injured on international duty and their captain, Hugo Lloris, was ruled out with a thigh problem shortly after admitting being two times over the drink-drive limit.

11.54am BST

“This won’t be a classic because it is on too early after the ‘break’ for international games,” reckons Ian Copestake. “But a 1-0 ugly thrashing of Spurs would still send a statement.”

11.52am BST

So that’s three changes for Spurs following their 2-1 defeat at Watford with Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Harry Winks coming into the side as Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez drop to the bench while Dele Alli is injured. At a guess, it’ll be a midfield three with Eriksen operating just behind Kane and Lucas.

Liverpool are a little more modest in their tinkering with Jordan Henderson replaced by Naby Keïta in midfield in a distinctively Klopp-like 4-3-3. The lesser-spotted Fabinho is named among the subtitutes.

11.42am BST

Tottenham (4-3-1-2): Vorm; Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Dier, Dembele, Winks; Eriksen; Lucas, Kane

Subs: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Davies, Sanchez, Wanyama, Lamela, Son

11.32am BST

After that inconvenient international break, the Premier League is back with a bang. And where better to get the party restarted than Wembley? Although as with an uninspiring England friendly, those at the ground today may wish they were somewhere else.

This was supposed to be the day Spurs began life in their new stadium, a gleaming reward for the recent lack of squad investment. Instead, the move has been put back, triggering a run of on and off-field misfortune that has eroded any optimism fostered by winning their first three games.

2.06pm BST

Liverpool have beaten what has been put in front of them so far but this fixture represents a step up; a defining test. If they can make it five wins out of five for only the third time at the start of a season then title talk would ignite. Tottenham are wounded after their meltdown at Watford while Mauricio Pochettino has had to deal with numerous issues, from new stadium delays to Hugo Lloris’s drink-drive conviction. It could be a classic. David Hytner

Firmino and Wijnaldum seal Liverpool win as Spurs pay price for Vorm errors

Guardian - lør, 15/09/2018 - 15:33

These may still be the embryonic stages of the new Premier League season but Liverpool firmly leave the impression they want to see the view from the top of the table, judging from their superiority here against another of the teams who will switch their attentions to the Champions League in the next few days. It was Liverpool’s fifth straight win, only the third time they have started the season so immaculately, and perhaps the most frightening thought for the teams playing catch-up is that Mohamed Salah has still not quite found his most exhilarating form of last season.

Defeat at Watford meant a difficult international break for Tottenham’s manager, who has questioned his players’ mentality

Mauricio Pochettino laughed a touch uneasily and made the symbol for a telephone with his thumb and little finger. “If we play in the same way against Liverpool as we did against Watford, rather than take off players, I will be on the phone to say: ‘Houston, we have a problem,’” he said.

The Tottenham manager has had the international break to stew upon the 2-1 loss at Watford and it feels as though it will take more than a redemptive victory over Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday lunchtime to flush it from his system.

Liverpool must show improvement at so-called big six, says Jürgen Klopp

Guardian - fre, 14/09/2018 - 23:30

• Reds lost 4-1 to Tottenham at Wembley last year
• Team must be more careful on the ball, adds manager

Jürgen Klopp says Liverpool must improve their away record against other members of the so-called big six and be prepared for “a proper fight” with Tottenham at Wembley.

Four of Liverpool’s five league defeats last season were away at leading rivals – Manchester City, Spurs, Manchester United and Chelsea – with October’s 4-1 loss to Mauricio Pochettino’s team a low point in terms of performance. The Liverpool manager believes Wembley witnessed a rare example of defensive disorganisation among his players, one that sparked significant improvement in the months that followed, and says there will be no repeat from his league leaders on Saturday. Improving results at Spurs, City and others will, he admits, be an important factor in sustaining a challenge at the top.

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend

Guardian - fre, 14/09/2018 - 01:30

Spurs’ rough month could be extended by Liverpool, another perfect record is on the line at Watford and fears for West Ham

September hasn’t exactly been great for Tottenham thus far. Defeat at Watford was followed by landing in Barcelona’s Champions League group, Daniel Levy confirming more costly delays to the new stadium and a night in Milton Keynes. Dele Alli got injured on international duty and their captain, Hugo Lloris, was ruled out with a thigh problem shortly after admitting being two times over the drink-drive limit. Ever a man to brighten the mood, Son Heung-min returns this week fresh from pulling the nutmeg of the year, with Asian Games gold (and military service exemption) also in the bag. How Spurs need him at lunchtime on Saturday against Liverpool. For all their talents, Tottenham are not otherwise blessed with pace and despite the South Korean playing eight games in four weeks, he should be called upon by Mauricio Pochettino, who is likely to employ the same counterattacking tactics that led to a 4-1 Spurs win in the same fixture last season.
