Tottenham missed a chance to close the gap to leaders Chelsea as they were easily beaten by a resolute Liverpool team. Spurs were looking to beat the Reds and ensure they keep the pressure on the Blues but Sadio Mane had other plans as a quick fire brace got the home side to the perfect start.
The away side barely had a kick in the game and Mauricio Pochettino certainly was not pleased with the performance from the players. The loss wasn’t expected as the Reds had been in a poor run of form but Tottenham blew a massive chance to strengthen their grip on a top four place and now will have to deal with the FA Cup and Europa League games too.
A disappointing night for Spurs fans and here we share the best Twitter updates from the game.
Only four Tottenham players completed more passes than Hugo Lloris (24) against Liverpool.

Tottenham are the polar opposite of us, cruise past the smaller teams but are pretty poor against the top 6 (mainly away).

Tottenham’s attacking midfield trio of Son, Alli and Eriksen created one chance today.
Coutinho, just by himself, created three chances.

There would have been no shame in shutting up shop and frustrating LFC into mistakes today – we gifted that match to them. Poor mentality

Classic Tottenham: when on a real good run of form they then, inevitably, bottle it when it really counts. Disappointing again.
