Some fans react on Twitter as Tottenham Hotspur draw 2-2 vs Liverpool
A maddening night ended at the N17 as Tottenham Hotspur managed to take a point away from 2nd placed Liverpool.
Antonio Conte has had to wait nearly two weeks for his side to play a league game again. The rising number of Covid-19 cases had seen their games against Rennes, Brighton, and Leicester City postponed. However, most of their stars were back for the game against Liverpool, and they made us proud.
The match began in a rampant manner as Spurs took the game to the Reds. However, there was a certain rhythm to our game as the entire team were on the same wavelength. The plan of action was clear to everybody and it was being executed to a peach. After just 12 minutes, it was none other than Harry Kane, who shrugged off Ibrahima Konate to put the ball past Alisson to score just his 2nd league goal of the season.
The star-striker and Son Heung-min were combining delightfully as Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks, and Dele Alli were dominating the midfield battle. Son then had two clear-cut chances to score but failed to do so on both occasions, although he was found offside once.
However, Liverpool only needed one chance to respond, and they took it. A bolt of pressure from the away side saw Andy Robertson latching onto a loose ball in the box before teeing up Diogo Jota, who scored a well-placed header to equalize. The game resumed and Kane looked to be wanting the win more than the others. He was running non-stop but then lunged into a challenge on Andy Robertson, for which he was lucky to not get a red card.
Best attacking performance of the season?
The second half began in the same fashion as the first as Conte prompted his men to surge forward. Winks, who was perhaps having his best game after a long time, was continuously slapping passes beyond the high Liverpool backline. Alli also set up a tap-in for Kane, only for the striker to be denied by Allison.
Spurs were dominating the game but Liverpool were always going to grow into it. Nearly 70 minutes into the game, a counter-attack saw a chaotic penalty box scuffle end with Trent Alexander-Arnold setting up Robertson for a header from two yards out. The Reds took the lead, but it was not going to last long.
Another through ball by Winks lured Allison out of his goal, and the Brazilian missed the ball completely, as Son was on hand to put the home side back on level terms. A couple of minutes later, Robertson slashed his foot heavily into Emerson Royal, and after a VAR review, the Scot was sent off.
Spurs could not find the equalizer in the final minutes but kept the Anfield outfit at bay as well. Conte and Jurgen Klopp shared the spoils of this thrilling encounter, although Tottenham could have killed the game off multiple times. Let us now see how some of our fans reacted on Twitter to this entertaining weekend tie.

Brilliant game. ALOT of fight and passion from the boys. But we could have easily put the game to bee in the first half. We’ve improved a whole bunch, but there’s still much to improve still. Onto the next game!— Sean. (@SeanDavies93) December 19, 2021
