'How?': Gary Neville blown away by what two Tottenham players at Liverpool this weekend
Tottenham had a big say in the Premier League title race this weekend as they took a hard-earned point from Liverpool at Anfield.
A goal from Heung-Min Son had looked like sending Spurs on their way to three points only for Luis Diaz to show his only class and equalise. However, Liverpool couldn’t sneak a winner and with Man City smashing Newcastle 5-0, the title race is now firmly in City’s hands.
However, Liverpool shouldn’t be too disheartened. On their day, Tottenham are good enough to beat anyone and the pairing of Son and Kane once again showed why it’s so feared. And speaking about the Tottenham duo, Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville admitted he was seriously impressed by how Kane and Son exploited the counter-attack.
“That ground to counter-attack on is the toughest ground to counter-attack on. I believe there’s less space there than there is here, there just is. I know they’ve done well here, but that ground is so tight and Van Dijk and Konate they’re so quick and so strong that you think to yourself how do Kane and Son do it against them, but they did,” Neville said on his Sky Sports podcast.
“That’s the toughest away game that you have to play I think, Anfield, and it’s the toughest game that you have to counter-attack in because the space is so little it feels like in the centre of midfield.”
TBR’s View: Kane And Son Show Their Class Against Liverpool
There is no doubting that Kane and Son are world-class players. They’d fit in any team in this league and they showed at Liverpool they’re more than good enough to perform.
Kane and Son often get plaudits for their goals and assists. But at Anfield, the pair were more than that and had to show more than just a goal threat.
Neville called Kane’s performance ‘unbelievable’ and you have to say, he’s bang on in that assessment.
