Tottenham – Liverpool 2-1 (1-1)
Liverpool have lost just one of their last 23 games against Tottenham (in 2017) in all competitions, but tonight things went really wrong.
In brief: a controversial Reds goal was disallowed for offside and he received two red cards – as well as an own goal six minutes into extra time.
The Reds really lived up to their name tonight. In extra time, centre-back Joel Matip put the ball into his own net to complete the scandalous evening. The stadium exploded with cheers from the players and fans, while Matip knelt down with his head bowed.
Tottenham remained high on the field during the last 20 minutes, and the match was more like handball than football in the end. The Whites got their reward in the final attack, when Pedro Porro fired powerfully in front of goal and Matip fired the ball into his own net.
-It’s a loud noise. We will mark a point correctly. Now we have zero, says Klopp, who also stated:
– I have never seen a game so unfair, with crazy decisions.
“It’s brutal,” Viaplay’s Tor Ole Skullerud said live when Matip scored an own goal in extra time.
Thus, Tottenham and their neighbor Arsenal are the only ones unbeaten in the Premier League this season. What a fiery match the players played in London.
– It’s one of the best matches I’ve seen in a long time, says Stephen Warnock, the former Liverpool full-back.

Heung-Min Son gave Tottenham the lead in the 36th minute. James Maddison sent a wonderful pass to Richarlison, and the Brazilian player shot it inside the penalty area, where Son stormed the ball and easily scored 1-0.
This happened before Liverpool’s goal was disallowed. Luis Diaz was narrowly offside before putting the ball into the net just under half an hour later. In the replay, the famous lines were not drawn, and many are not convinced that the wing actually exists our Offside.
– It looks like it’s indoors, says Viaplay’s pal Andre Helland in a studio break.
“When it takes a long time before you get an answer after a controversial situation, you know someone has made a mistake,” he believes Sky Sports Analyst Jamie Carragher.
– It’s not offside. never. They drew the lines wrong, Klopp says of the situation.
The German says he saw pictures of the incident on “Instagram or Twitter or something like that.”
The television network beIN SPORTS itself drew the lines after the incident, and believes Diaz was by his side:
VAR announced just before the end of the match that it would provide an official explanation after the match. The latest news is that it will be a matter of human error.
Hyland calls the guy a “bread hat” in the studio after the match and thinks it’s a scandal.
Liverpool were reduced to ten players after Curtis Jones received a red card in the 26th minute. The VAR asked the referee to go to the screen and after a period of thought sent off the midfielder.
Jones originally received a yellow card for a tackle on Yves Bissouma, but replays showed he went in with the handles and hit the opponent in the calf. He hit the ball first and it was an accident, but the referee is merciless.
And on social media, feedback is welcome.
– Curtis stepped on the ball and his foot collided with his leg. regrettable. It wasn’t bad handling. Klopp says after the match: He stepped on the ball.
He thinks it looks different when you see it in replay.
– The situation is strange
Cody Jacobo tied the score 1-1 in overtime in the first half. He received the ball in the penalty area, turned and shot the ball into the net. The Dutchman injured himself with the same throw and then caught his leg.
“It’s a weird situation,” Viaplay’s Tor Ole Skullerud said live.
The striker then managed to escape that strike, but was substituted at half-time.
Referee Simon Hooper was keen on his line-up tonight, handing Diogo Jota two yellow cards in the space of a minute. Consequently, the Reds had to play the last 20 minutes plus extras with nine men.
– The first yellow card for Diogo Jota is never a yellow card, says Klopp.
This is the fourth red card for Liverpool in the English Premier League this season.
