Liverpool vs Tottenham LIVE: Premier League result, final score and reaction as Reds drop crucial points

Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham: Follow reaction from Anfield as the Redscan only draw with Spurs

Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp hails players as ‘mentality monsters’ show up vs Villarreal

Tottenham blew a huge hole in Liverpool’s Premier League - and quadruple - hopes as Son Heung-min’s 20th goal of the season earned them a 1-1 draw at Anfield to gift the advantage to Manchester City.

Despite Luis Diaz’s 74th-minute equaliser and manager Jurgen Klopp going for broke, knowing he had no other option, the hosts now require their title rivals to lose one of their four remaining matches.

Even though the point took Liverpool top of the table, it was only courtesy of a superior goal difference of one and Pep Guardiola’s side will go three points clear with a win at home to Newcastle on Sunday.

The draw did little for Spurs’ top-four hopes either as they remain a point behind north London rivals Arsenal, who host struggling Leeds a couple of hours before City kick off.

Follow the reaction and updates as Liverpool take on Tottenham at Anfield:
