Tottenham travelled to Anfield confident they could cause Liverpool problems considering the hosts’ fragile defence.
Instead it was Spurs who were taken advantage of. The visitors started poorly and quickly conceded twice — Sadio Mane grabbed both goals.
Jurgen Klopp’s side threatened to further their lead on numerous occasions but Tottenham managed to keep the score at 2-0.
Spurs showed no real urgency to get back into the game and failed to create any meaningful chances.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the performance and result.
Totally outplayed from the first minute to the last. Have to hope it's just a bad day but at least we've played all the top half away now.

Awful today. Still got a lot to learn. Gutted #COYS

Naive tactics and poor individual performances today. Nothing else to add.

Should have blown for full time after 20 minutes.

Anfield struggle continues. 2 brutal defensive errors. Different team without Rose and Verts. Credit the lads for keeping up the fight #COYS

But hey, take nothing away from Liverpool. They fully deserved the victory today. Not sure they’ve ‘clicked’ yet but a decent side.

Totally out played, missing 2 left sided defenders. The back up players prove again aren't good enough. We have a great 11 but that's it.
