Liverpool suffer Premier League title blow with draw against Tottenham

Posted 1 week ago 07 May 2022 by Emmanuel

Liverpool suffered a blow to their Premier League title hopes despite coming from behind to earn a 1-1 draw with Champions League-chasing Tottenham at Anfield on Saturday.

Luis Diaz's deflected strike cancelled out Son Heung-Min's opener with just over 15 minutes remaining, but despite an attacking onslaught late on, Jurgen Klopp's side couldn't find a desperately sought winner.

The result takes Liverpool level on points with Manchester City and above them on goal difference at the top of the Premier League but City now have a game in hand, at home to Newcastle United on Sunday.

While not the victory they at one stage were on course for, the draw provides a useful point for Tottenham in their quest for a top-four place and a spot in next season's Champions League. Spurs remain fifth, now just a point behind Arsenal, who have a game in hand, ahead of Thursday's eagerly anticipated North London Derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
