While it wasn’t exactly backs to the wall for 90 minutes as some media reports are suggesting, Tottenham had to show a great deal of resilience to come away with a draw from yesterday’s encounter at Anfield.
After the game, Assistant Manager Kevin Bond hailed a ‘different type of performance’ as Spurs took a valuable point from the match.
“We’re noted this season for the manner in which we play our free-flowing football but we weren’t able to do that as much as we would have liked,” Bond said.
“I think we had a spell latterly in the first half where we kept the ball a little bit better and grew in confidence but we never really took that on so well in the second half so it was a different type of display from us today.
“Maybe in previous times we would have been here we might not have got something from the game so we got a point tonight in a different way. “
Gareth Bale may have turned that point into three with a clear chance late on but Bond chose to give credit to Pepe Reina.
“Credit to the goalkeeper, he made it really difficult for Gareth but overall we were really pleased with the manner in which the lads approached the game and applied themselves,” Kevin added.
The draw keeps Spurs in third place and next up is our home game with Newcastle on Saturday evening.
