Jurgen Klopp started his Premier League Journey with Liverpool at the White Hart Lane in a crunch game. Both teams were full of energy from the beginning but neither team failed to break the deadlock as the game ended in a 0-0 draw. Both teams missed some first team players and will be somewhat happy with the result.

Here are the player ratings for the Tottenham vs Liverpool game

Tottenham Hotspur:

Hugo Lloris (3): Should have been beaten by Origi’s header but was lucky not to concede. Was generally solid when called upon.

Jan Vertonghen (3.5): Was solid at the back as he kept the likes of Origi away from the goal. Made a number of important interceptions.

Tony Alderweireld (3): A decent game at the back as he was never really troubled by the Liverpool attackers. 

Danny Rose (3.5): Made Liverpool work hard down the flanks and gave no space what-so-ever. Was also impressive going forward.

Kyle Walker (3): Impressive performance in the middle of the pitch as he kept the Liverpool players on their toes at the edge of the box.

Nacer Chadli (2.5): Picked up a nasty looking injury just 8 minutes into the game. Was replaced by C N’Jie.

Mousa Dembele (3): Gave plenty of cover to the back four as he often sat deep in his half helping his team-mates start their attacks from the back.

Christian Eriksen (3.5): One of the best players in a Tottenham shirt on the day. Troubled Liverpool every time he was in possession and linked up well with his strikers.

Eric Lamela (2): The Argentine did not look too comfortable with the ball at his feet as he often looked devoid of ideas.

Dele Alli (3): Would have loved to contribute more when going forward but was exceptional when he was required to defend.

Harry Kane (3): Had the better of Skrtel more than a couple of times but need to do more when he drove straight at Mignolet from two or three half chances.

SUBS:

Clinton N’Jie (2): Had a superb shot saved by Mignolet but apart from that, he rarely troubled the Liverpool defense and often conceded posession in promisins situations.

Andros Townsend (2.5): Played the last 10 minutes of the game but failed to have any kind of an impact.

Liverpool

Simon Mignolet (4): A Man of the Match performance from the Belgian shot-stopper. Made a series of important saves as he gave his team a point from this tricky fixture.

Nathaniel Clyne (3.5): A complete performance from the Liverpool right back as he was sound defensively and provided the width when needed in attack.

Martin Skrtel (2.5): Was kept on his toes for most of the game by Harry Kane did a decent job of holding him but could have done a bit better in the air.

Mamadou Sakho (3.5): Another good game for Sakho at the centre of defense as he won almost everything in the air. Was also calm and composed in possession.

Alberto Moreno (2.5): The Liverpool left-back was not at his best as he rarely provided anything in attack. Was not too bad in defense when called upon.

Lucas Leiva (2.5): Broke play as he was required in the middle of the park but often let his team down with his wayward passing.

Emre Can (3.5): Showed the full-throttle football that his manager wanted from his team. He was relentless in his pressing and often made Tottenham commit mistakes in their half. Could have been better with his accuracy in passing.

James Milner (2.5): The skipper was full of energy till the end of the game but did very little to help Liverpool score. His manager will want him to contribute a bit more in the attack.

Adam Lallana (3): His mistake at the back could have cost Liverpool but put the pressure on the home side giving them very little space in the middle.

Philippe Coutinho (2.5): Went missing for large parts of the game as he failed to create any sort of impact on Liverpool attacking movements.

Divock Origi (3): Should have scored in the first half with a header that hit the post. Impressed in his first full debut for Liverpool.

SUBS:

Joe Allen (2.5): Played the last quarter of the game and hardly affected the proceedings.

Jordan Ibe (3): Came in for the last 10 minutes of the game and showed plenty of hunger. May well earn his place in the mid-week Europa fixture.
