Tottenham turned the game around, but a mistake by Lucas Moura crossed everything out.
Tottenham, at the end of the season, is a complete disappointment. A week ago, there was a painful defeat from Newcastle with a score of 1:6. After that; the club announced that the players would return the money for tickets to Tottenham fans. And here comes the new weekend. By the 15th minute, the team was losing - 0:3. The broadcast showed how the fans again left the stands in the middle of the first half.
At that moment, Liverpool fans were chanting: "Refund in the morning, You're getting a refund in the morning".
Team co-owner Daniel Levy was shown in a separate close-up broadcast. He did not leave the podium, but he looked very thoughtful. Perhaps he was going over who should have been appointed in the past or who will be in the future because this season already seems unsalvageable. Fire another interim coach is no longer an option. Such failures in the starting 15 minutes cannot be explained only by top rivals.
Although the generally unstable Liverpool looked great this time, the pressure worked, and both Curtis Jones and Mohamed Salah scored in the attack, and even Luis Diaz scored for the first time after an injury. The last goal on his account was in the 4th round of the Premier League.
True, then Tottenham still adjusted the game and had some cool counterattacks. With some luck, the score in the first half could equalize, but of all these moments, only one was realized. Harry Kane has scored his 25th Premier League goal this season (only Haaland has more). The striker is second in the history of the tournament's top scorers with 208 destinations each and Wayne Rooney. Alan Shearer is in first place with 260 Premier League goals.
In the second half, Liverpool also had the initiative, but in the 54th minute, the guests hit the post twice. The hosts should have scored more so that the opponent did not return to the game because in the 77th minute, Son Heung Min (of course, in a fast attack) ran ahead in space and, this time, did not miss his chance.
Liverpool could have had a lot of fun if Diogo Jota had been sent off in the 82nd minute. The Portuguese drove Oliver Skipp with his high leg - it turned out straight with spikes in the temple. The guests demanded a red card, but the referee limited himself to a yellow one.
The end of the match turned out to be powerful. In the 93rd minute, Richarlison equalized with his first Premier League goal for Tottenham. However, in the 94th minute, Jota still won a victory after Lucas Moura's error! Liverpool coach Klopp celebrated the decisive goal in such a way that he even got a minor injury - he pulled the back of his thigh.
Judging by the news, Julian Nagelsman may come to Tottenham in the summer. Whoever ends, in the end, will be challenging for him to turn the tide. And, without European competition, it will only be easier to do. As for Liverpool, the team's chances for the Champions League are still slim because Manchester United and Newcastle won their matches on the same day.
