Interesting Records from the Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool Match

By db-admin –  A goal from Roberto Firmino became the differentiator in the outcome of the match when Liverpool won 1-0 over Tottenham Hotspur in the continuing Premier League match.

Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham have made every effort to break through Liverpool’s goal guarded by Alisson. This can be seen from 14 attempted kicks and four of them were right on target (despite losing 32 percent of ball possession).

But in the end, the collectivity and individual qualities of Liverpool players was able to be the differentiator at the end of the match. Collecting 61 points, plus still leaving one match postponed, Liverpool is 16 points with Leicester City in second place of the standings.

“First and foremost is the end result. One team deserves to win and that is us. Winning at Tottenham is quite special. The match did not end (with a goal that killed the match) after 50-60 minutes was our mistake,” Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports

“It was very intense for us. You can predict they will survive far in this stadium, but the score is 4-6-0 in the first round. If it is easy to win here, more teams will do it.

Whatever it is, Liverpool won three points, maintaining their momentum, and also recorded clean sheets. From that fight a number of records or interesting notes have emerged. Reporting from Opta, these are the records:

– One draw and 20 wins has Liverpool the only team to win the most points in the Premier League (61 points) and also among the teams in the top five European leagues.
