Liverpool and Tottenham battled out a 0-0 draw at White Hart Lane in Jurgen Klopp’s first game as Liverpool’s manager. The game dissipated in the second half after a lively first 45 minutes but both clubs will be pleased to come away with a point. Here are 5 points to take away from the encounter.
Plenty of chances, none taken.
Tottenham had 13 shots at goal and Liverpool,12, but neither side were able to find a goal. Harry Kane looked lively for Spurs and could have got two had it not been for some brilliant saves from Simon Mignolet.
The best chance of the game came in the 10th minute. A Liverpool corner was met with the head of Emre Can which then was diverted onto the cross-bar from Origi. The ball just wouldn’t fall comfortably for a Liverpool player and Tottenham were able to clear.
Minutes later, Clinton N’Jie hit a superb volley which just fizzed above the crossbar. Great chances, but neither could find a way to put the ball in the back of the net.
