Liverpool drew 2-2 vs Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening. Here are our picks for the top three Liverpool players from the fixture.
3. Andy Robertson
Yeah, we’re still putting him on the list. Robertson picked up a wonderful assist for Diogo Jota’s equaliser and then put Liverpool in front in the second half.
He got forward brilliantly from the first minute, helping Liverpool worry Tottenham consistently. Really, this was one of his best games this season – a brilliant display.
And then there was that red card. There isn’t much to say about it that hasn’t already been said, of course. Robertson was on the end of a far worse challenge in the first half that saw a yellow, he saw a red.
Regardless, his overall performance was the best on the pitch. Man of the Match for Liverpool vs Tottenham if not for that red.
2. Trent Alexander-Arnold
A great display from Alexander-Arnold here, who was another consistent threat throughout. He got his trademark assist, too, setting up Robertson for the second goal.
But this was an all-around performance to be proud of. Alexander-Arnold created four chances throughout the game – as you’d expect – and won four tackles to boot. Some of those tackles were absolutely vital. One to stop Ryan Sessegnon in the first half was particularly important at a time when Spurs pressured Liverpool.
It’s what we’re expecting right now. Alexander-Arnold might be in the form of his life and he continues to improve.
1. Alisson Becker
Alisson made a pretty poor error for Tottenham’s equaliser. He did the right thing coming out, timed it well, but didn’t get anything like the contact he wanted. It happens.
And we won’t hold it against him when we say he was the Reds’ best player out there. Alisson made at least two sensational saves here and there’s no question that Liverpool lose to Spurs without him.
Some world-class moments in a game no one could control.
