Hugo Lloris accepts blame as Tottenham suffer late heartbreak

Late own goal gives Liverpool vital win over Spurs | Bangkok Post: news

Tottenham players react at the end of the English Premier League soccer match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield stadium in Liverpool, England, Sunday, March 31, 2019.

Snatching three points so late at Anfield kept the Liverpool faithful dreaming of a first title since 1990 - even with defending champion City having a game in hand.

Nevertheless, the Scotland captain's delivery was absolutely pinpoint, curling a cross in between Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen which Firmino headed down and past Hugo Lloris.

"It is only positive", said Klopp.

"I told the boys there are 500,000 ways to win a game and today was rather ugly", the Liverpool manager said.

Moussa Sissoko had a chance to win it for the visitors five minutes from time when Liverpool was caught two-on-one at the back but the one was Virgil van Dijk who, wary of the greater danger of Son Heung-min, delayed long enough to force the Frenchman into a decision and he blazed over.

Instead, Mauricio Pochettino's men remain without a Premier League win since February 10.

As Liverpool has pushed Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, Tottenham has slipped far from title contention. "We have seven games, it's in our hands to be in the top four and Champions League next season", he said.

Pope Francis is known to be a football fan and is a club member of Buenos Aires side San Lorenzo . Pope Francis has insisted Lionel Messi is nothing compared to God but admits he is great player.

The only shot on target of the first half proved the difference at the interval, with Firmino running into the space between Spurs' centre-back trio to head in Andrew Robertson's precise cross.

However, Liverpool were thankful again to Robertson at the other end as he made a vital block to prevent Christian Eriksen firing home the rebound after Alisson Becker was forced into his first save of the afternoon by Harry Kane.

It was Firmino's 14th goal of the season, while Robertson became the first Liverpool defender to provide at least nine assists in a single Premier League season and only Chelsea's Eden Hazard and Bournemouth's Ryan Fraser, both wingers, now have more.

In a glass tower near the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan, Greg Carey and his team at Goldman Sachs worked with Tottenham to finance $828 million (637 million pounds) of the project, which is expected to cost well over $1 billion.

Harry Kane hit a flawless ball forward from a quick free-kick to find Kieran Trippier and the defender steered the ball into Christian Eriksen, who squared for Lucas Moura to level.

As Liverpool surged forward in search of a victor, Spurs could have picked them off as Sissoko blazed over with just Alisson to beat before Alli clipped a shot inches wide.

"It was a lucky punch, the header and the ball rolls in", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.

Meanwhile, late goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek helped Chelsea complete a thrilling comeback to beat Cardiff City 2-1 away. The win moves Chelsea to within one point of fourth-placed Manchester United.
