Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp has criticised Tottenham’s tactics after their 1-1 draw on Saturday.
Antonio Conte’s men sat deep throughout the game at Anfield on Saturday, playing a five-man defence and a strategy that was designed to catch the Reds on the break.
Tottenham scored the first goal of the night when Son Heung-min scored from a counter attack, Ryan Sessegnon sprints down the left to square play for Son who scored his 20th goal of the season.
Liverpool struck back when Luis Diaz’s effort deflected past Hugo Lloris.
“I am sorry, I am the wrong person to ask about (Spurs’ defending) because I don’t like this kind of football,” Klopp said.
“But that is my personal problem. I think they are world class and I think they should do more for the game.
“It’s a game against Liverpool and they have 36% possession. But that is my problem. I cannot coach it. So that is why I cannot do it. World-class players, who block all the balls. It is really difficult. Fine, whatever, it’s just I can’t. But yes I respect everything they do. But it’s not me.
The result takes Liverpool to the top of the Premier League on goal difference but the Reds could fall three points behind City if Pep Guardiola’s side can see off Newcastle today, Sunday.
