Harry Kane makes a brutal confession about the Tottenham dressing room after Liverpool’s defeat | Tech US News


Harry Kane scored in the second half but Spurs could not find the elusive equalizer to secure a point and avoid defeat.

Tottenham paid dearly for a slow start against Liverpool with a 2-1 defeat against Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are looking to challenge them for a top four spot. The Lillywhites are somewhat of a comeback specialist this season, but they made themselves work too hard after going 2-0 down in the first half.

Mohamed Salah, the architect of Liverpool’s victory, finished superbly first before receiving a pass from Eric Dier, who intended to head the ball past his goalkeeper but ended up heading it over his shoulder to the Egyptian, Salah running through before scoring his own and Liverpool’s the second goal.

Tottenham, who were without Son Heung-min and Richarlison, dominated the second half and created enough to grab at least a point, but Jurgen Klopp’s side held on for what was an important win for them after defeats to Leeds and Nottingham Forest.

Kane, who scored his 11th Premier League goal to give his side a fighting chance in the second half, said they must stop imposing a mountain on themselves in games if they want to challenge for titles and be at the top scales.

The Tottenham forward said after the game: “Yeah, of course there’s a heavy feeling behind that performance in the second half at the moment and it’s obviously pushing them all the way to the end. We felt we deserved the second goal but unfortunately the damage was done in the first half.

I think we made too many mistakes at key moments in big games and were punished for it and that was the case today. I think when we look back at the season, we have to try to minimize those mistakes, especially when you play the best teams.

“We’re disappointed that we lost the game and we weren’t good enough when we were two-nil down and it’s happened too often this season when we’ve been behind and then we’ve had to turn around and come back in the second half and we’ve been pushing teams to the end. but if you want to fight for big things, you have to make sure you win these kinds of games and come out on top, and that’s what we’ve been doing.

“We knew and we said we’d come right back to it if we got it, and we did, we had shots and shots that just didn’t sit well with us.”

Having gone 10 games unbeaten at home in the Premier League, they have now lost their last home game and Antonio Conte will be looking to steal his backline once again in the remaining games before the World Cup break.
