Rose helps Tottenham Hotspur earn tie with Liverpool

Sadio Mane, signed from Southampton in the summer, has fast become one of the key players in Liverpool's line-up. James Milner stepped up and made no mistake from 12-yards, 1-0.

Eventually the Reds would score in the 43rd minute but it was less about Spurs' awful defense (even though it was quite bad) and more about referee Bobby Madley calling a soft foul on √Črik Lamela.

It left the hosts with an unfamiliar configuration on the right flank and Liverpool exploited their uncertainty when Firmino was clipped by Erik Lamela after darting in behind him. We have everything you need to know about the Tottenham-Liverpool start time and a glance at the Spurs lineup and Liverpool lineup.

Spurs striker Harry Kane is yet to score this season, but having taken seven games to open his account last term - which ended with him winning the Golden Boot - manager Mauricio Pochettino is not anxious. Gradually Liverpool began to take control of the game with their rapid passing and speed of thought putting Spurs on the back foot.

But there will be greater concerns about the level of Christian Eriksen, who struggled to have a meaningful effect on the match and was lucky to stay on until the very last minute when he was replaced by Harry Winks.

The striker, who has been included in Sam Allardyce's first England squad, was introduced as a late substitute in the 1-1 draw, with Klopp instead choosing to send Divock Origi on in place of Philippe Coutinho midway through the second half. "We showed we can be good. He is a fantastic boy", Klopp said recently. This is hard work and no-one is permitted to take a break.

There have been suggestions that Sturridge has grown unhappy at Liverpool, with a lack of game time and Klopp's failure to play him in his preferred central position contributing to his surly body language. He is able to slow things down when Spurs need it and it stops them from just flying back and forth without control on the game.

"We were flexible in offensive defending". We had wonderful moments of passing and direction. "Sitting here with four points after three games is not what I wanted but this is our base and we will build on this base".

"I'm sure it will have hurt him being left on the bench for so long during Saturday's game at Tottenham".

Spurs came back at them after half-time, prompting Klopp to look for reinforcements. It was down that channel which the penalty came for Liverpool. Second half we didn't do enough.
