Liverpool dropped points in the Premier League title race after playing out a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Saturday, May 7. The Reds struggled to break through Spurs’ tight-knit defense as the visitors opened the scoring through Son Heung-Min.
The hosts were able to pull one back through Luis Diaz’s deflected shot. However, the Anfield faithful were expecting Divock Origi to be substituted on, with the star currently in super-sub form. However, Jurgen Klopp chose to bring Diogo Jota on instead, upsetting the fans who were hoping for a winner from Origi.
The Kopites took to Twitter to share their unhappiness with Klopp’s decision, and here is a selection of such tweets:
The draw against Tottenham has put Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table, but only on goal difference. Second-placed Manchester City, who have a game in hand against the Reds, will play Newcastle United on Sunday, May 8.
If the Cityzens win their game, they will sit three points ahead of the Reds. Klopp’s men will hope that Pep Guardiola and his men drop points in the remaining four games of the season.
