Spurs Deny Liverpool Victory At Anfield

English Premier League

Result:  Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Date:  02 April 2016

Venue:  Anfield

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur were inseparable at Anfield as the two sides played out an entertaining 1-1 draw on Saturday evening.

Tottenham enjoyed a better start to the clash as they controlled most parts of the early exchanges. Spurs were applying notable pressure all the way from the front with Kane, and it was proving to be effective as they dominated play in the opening few minutes.

Spurs continued to look good and Kane had a lovely opportunity to put them ahead in the 25th minute, but the hitman’s effort was just wide of the mark. Ten minutes later Daniel Sturridge should have buried the ball in the back of the net, but a quick-thinking Hugo Lloris ensured the scores remained deadlocked as he produced a fine save to deny the English striker.

The Reds began to get some momentum going as the half-time break loomed, as they were looking more and more threatening on attacking with Philippe Coutinho playing an influential role in moulding their attacking moves.

The hosts could not have asked for a better start to the second stanza, as Coutinho started and finished a one-two with Sturridge, easing past Dier and placing a splendid first-time effort into the bottom corner to beat Lloris only five minutes in, 1-0.

Jurgen Klopp’s men continued to dominate the clash in the second half, but it was Harry Kane who got the leveller with a lovely 63rd minute strike to level matters at 1-1.

The equalizer seemed to bring the game to life as both sides now went on the offensive. It was end-to-end action at Anfield and the Liverpool faithful was enjoying every minute of it.

Christian Eriksen forced a superb save out of Simon Mignolet in the 66th minute, before Coutinho swung a dangerous into the area and somehow the ball went past the face of goal without getting a touch.

The sea-saw battle continued right until the dying moments of the encounter, as Divock Origi set up Coutinho who pulled his shot just a whisker off target in the 86th minute. Six minutes later Dembele almost grabbed a winner for the visitors but Mignolet was determined to keep his side in it as the Belgian stopper diverted the ball around the post.

The match eventually ended 1-1 with the two sides sharing the spoils after an exciting match at Anfield.
