Kane bags brace as Spurs crush Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp

GETTY Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool lost 4-1 to Tottenham

Liverpool center back, Dejan Lovren, had a torrid afternoon at Wembley, at the center of the blame for Tottenham's first two goals within 13 minutes.

But Pochettino is running out of superlatives when it comes to describing his star striker Kane, whose 37 goals for Tottenham in 2017 is only beaten by Lionel Messi of Barcelona.

Liverpool dropped to ninth, 12 points behind leaders Manchester City and Klopp, who substituted centre-back Dejan Lovren after 31 minutes, did not hold back in his criticism of his players.

Clearly embarrassed and shaken from the experience, Lovren appears to have responded by deleting Liverpool from his bio and picture on Instagram in the aftermath of the defeat.

"Klopp has the nerve to smile?" and "there's nothing to laugh at it's embarrassing again" were just a number of comments made. They've conceded the most goals away from home in the Premier League this season.

Kane opened the scoring early on after latching onto Kieran Trippier's pass before keeping his nerve to round Simon Mignolet and fire home.

Wagner, in charge of the second team at the German side when Klopp was the head coach, led 11th-placed Huddersfield to their first win over United since 1952 over the weekend.

Despite recording a resounding seven-goal Champions League victory over Slovenian outfit, Maribor, during the week, Liverpool's Premier League form continued to baffle their supporters. I know we'll do everything we can to change it because that's the nature of us as a team.

"It was so emotional and difficult to let him go because when you are in front of Maradona you want to speak with him, stay with him and share a moment with him".

A record 80,827 spectators were in attendance at the Wembley Stadium to watch the much anticipated encounter.

"The way we started the game and how we played the first 45 minutes was very good".

The England international scored twice at Wembley and also teed up the second goal for Son Heung-min, while Dele Alli joined his team-mates on the scoresheet.

He said: "I'm so happy, very pleased". Soon after, Spurs French stopper used his feet to deny both James Milner and Salah as the Reds, to their credit, refused to throw in the towel.

"Another fantastic performance", enthused the Spurs manager in response.

But Alli restored Tottenham's two-goal lead with a volley on the stroke of half time to cap a good individual display. "Of course we can fix it but we have to fix it as well". We put it on a plate.
