Andy Robertson namedrops three Liverpool stars Tottenham Hotspur struggled to contain

Speaking to the BBC Match of the Day (h/t The Express), Liverpool star Andy Robertson has namedropped three Reds’ stars that Tottenham Hotspur failed to keep under check on Sunday night.

The standout Premier League game of the weekend saw Jurgen Klopp’s men come away with a 2-1 win on their night, their first victory away from home in the league this season.

The Reds started the game on the front foot and scored twice in the first half courtesy of a Mohamed Salah double. It proved decisive as Tottenham’s second-half fightback fell short.

Speaking after the game, Robertson believes Liverpool played their best football on the night. He believes Tottenham struggled to keep apace and in particular failed to contain three players.

“Today, first half was the best football we have played all season. We really controlled the game. Roberto Firmino, Thiago, Harvey Elliott all popped up and Spurs didn’t know where they were or how to deal with us.”

The trio of Roberto Firmino, Thiago Alcantara and Harvey Elliott looked up for the fight and quickly seized the initiative in the middle of the park. It was a fair assessment given that our players lacked fight for large parts of the opening 45 minutes.

Tottenham have been slow starters all season and Liverpool were aware of it. Jurgen Klopp’s men were ready and also weathered the second-half storm in the second half for a precious three points.

“Spurs are slow starters but we knew they would come back in the second half with the quality and the manager they have.”

This is Spurs’ third loss in the Premier League over their last four matches and largely derails their title charge. Unless the rot is stemmed soon, it could see us go into freefall and drop further down the league standings.

Speaking ahead of the game, Antonio Conte reminisced about costing Liverpool the title last season. The comment will have come back to haunt him on Sunday with Klopp’s men more or less returning the favour.
