Liverpool should follow Tottenham's model if they're to compete again

Liverpool Team average- 6.14

After a 4-1 defeat away to Tottenham, one of the Premier League's most impressive teams, it would not be hard to argue that Liverpool look as far away from challenging for the title as they ever have.

"I've made mistakes myself but if we'd conceded 50 goals every season for Manchester United, heads would roll".

Boss, Mauricio Pochettino, made one change to the side that had brushed the Wembley monkey off their backs against the Cherries. Without Dembele or Wanyama, and with Eric Dier on the bench, the away fans would have been licking their lips at the prospect of their fearsome front three escaping the likes of Winks and Alli but both showed a positional awareness that ensured Spurs' defenders were rarely overloaded compared to their counterparts.

"Let's hope for England's sake he can continue this form into next summer".

Kane netted one more in the second half, as Jurgen Klopp's men struggled to deal with their intensity and superiority.

Liverpool hadn't threatened when Mohamed Salah scored in the 24th but it would only prove a consolation.

Spurs were clearly in the mood, and they soon doubled their advantage. No I don't coach the type of defending for the first throw in... the second goal, we miss the ball and then Son is quicker. Son thundered an angled attempt against the face of the bar.

Liverpool had more than enough trouble dealing with Spurs striker Harry Kane, who met the former Boca Juniors, Barcelona and Napoli magician before kickoff and would have impressed him greatly as he took his Premier League tally this season to eight with his side's first and fourth goals. Meanwhile, Lloris did well to cut out Salah's centre after he'd skipped away down the right. But Liverpool's defensive frailties were nearly exposed again when Kane brushed off Joe Gomez before firing wide. Dele Alli and Kane, however, struck either side of half-time to put the result beyond doubt.

Oxlade-Chamberlain fired in a unsafe cross as Liverpool attempted to start the second half on the front foot, Salah just unable to get to it, but more chaos in the visiting defence was not far away as Spurs wrapped up the points before an hour had gone.

There was no way back for Liverpool although Lloris did have to pull off an incredible one-handed save to push Philippe Coutinho's powerful effort against the crossbar and later blocked a Salah shot with his legs.
