This Sunday, shock in Premier League. After a good game with occasions on both sides, Tottenham Hotspur managed to obtain a precious victory against Liverpool. With the 2 goals advantage, Tottenham Hotspur seized the advantage in the race for the final Europa League spot as Liverpool’s first match since the appointment of Kenny Dalglish as permanent manager ended in defeat.
Kenny Dalglish: “They started better than we did and scored a goal and we didn’t start to play for 25 minutes. We started to look a bit better and then at the start of the second half they got the second goal and that gave them a real foothold and we didn’t have enough to break them down. I don’t think Pepe Reina was over-busy either but we never played as well as we can play. We feel we have short-changed the fans by not getting the result.”
Harry Redknapp: “We played well. We kept the ball and played some good football. There were some good performances. The back four were excellent. To come here and win is a rarity for Tottenham. But we have done it today and I thought we deserved it.
It was a good performance. We’re trying to get in that fifth spot like Liverpool. We’ve both got big games next week and we will see what happens then. You still want to finish as high as you can. You want to be in the Europa League.”
