Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hit out at Antonio Conte’s tactics at Tottenham after the Reds were held to a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening.

Son Heung-min opened the scoring for Conte’s side but eventually saw his goal cancelled out by Luis Diaz, whose deflected effort earned Liverpool a point but opened the door for Manchester City to take real control of the title race against Newcastle on Sunday.

After the game, Klopp insisted he was happy with his side’s performance but questioned Spurs’ approach to big games compared to their own league position.

“I’m really happy with the performance and proud of the mentality we showed against an incredibly good opponent with a gameplan,” he said. “We had to win and they sit back and do counter-attacks.
