Tottenham Hotspur had to fight it out for a point at Anfield and needed their in-form striker Harry Kane to equalize for them as they went a goal down at the start of the second half at Anfield.

The home side had plenty of chances and so did the visitors but neither team could find a winner in the 90 minutes as both clubs had to settle for a point.

But being a Manchester United player, Spanish international Ander Herrera took a dig at his arch rivals Liverpool in an interview ahead of United’s trip to White Hart Lane.

Herrera missed a lot of games recently due to injury but came in as a substitute in United’s 1-0 victory over Everton.

He explained that his team were fully aware of the challenges they will face against Tottenham this weekend and that they are ready to step up their game if needed.

The Spanish midfielder said: “When we play against top teams, I am not so worried about our performance because I think we usually do quite well against them.”

He went on to say that the problem for his team this season has been against the smaller sides who set themselves up to defend and said that he is more worried about such games than the clash at White Hart Lane.

“The most difficult games for us or when I am a little bit more worried is when we’re not playing against top teams,” Herrera added.

The 26-year old also spoke about Tottenham’s performance at Anfield.

He felt that the Spur’s retained the ball well in the final third and said that they deserved more than a point from this game.

“I think they deserved to win, they controlled the second half almost fully, so it is not going to be easy, but when we play against top teams we perform better.”

The midfielder revealed that his team was fully prepared and that a week’s break between games will help his side.

He explained that they watched the Anfield clash closely and that prepared well for their trip.

“This season we have played almost every three days, so we have to prepare very good for that game because we watched their game against Liverpool,” he added.
