After losing the last game against Burnley, Liverpool were looking all set to bag all the points against Tottenham only to see Danny Rose cancelling James Milner’s 43rd minute strike late in the second half to rescue a points for the home side.
Liverpool dominated the first half and deservedly got the lead when their striker Roberto Firmino was fouled by Eric Lamela in the penalty box which was comfortably converted by Milner. The visitors were dominating the proceedings after the break too. They found the net in the 55th minute but it was ruled offside. And out of nowhere Spurs found the equaliser 18 minutes from time when a cross was brilliantly finished by Rose.
Let us see how the Twitterati reacted to the match:

Sturridge, Coutinho and Mane should be 3 of the first names on the team sheet. Unfortunately Klopp only agreed on 2.

2 points dropped. Very good performance. Disallowed goal & Coutinho miss killed us. Lots of positives. Lallana excellent #LFC

When Coutinho isn't scoring belters, he doesn't actually do much… That's the problem.

Both sides: Unhappy. Liverpool bc they should have won on merit, Tottenham bc they need to win at home vs LFC if serious about title/Top4.

Imagine Henderson or Lallana missed those chances instead of Coutinho, there'd be calls for their heads.

Jurgen Klopp is arrogant. Clearly. To start the season without a LB, DMF and a top CB is beyond me. #LFC

Absolutely love Klopp and believe in him but he needs to adapt his tactics in situations where his team is ahead. It's fine to park the bus.

Why people blaming Klopp for! think we played well 1-1 away at Spurs ain't to bad surely!

Klopp's downfall potentially could be his unwillingness to play our best player. I'm not saying it will, but there's that potential

Erik Lamela: Has been directly involved in 3 of the last 4 goals Tottenham have scored in the Premier League #TOTLIV

Getting points while playing badly is the sign of a good team except when it's Tottenham naturally 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄😎
