Virgil van Dijk disagrees with Jurgen Klopp after disappointing draw against Tottenham

After Liverpool’s suffered Premier League title blow, Red defender Virgil van Dijk appeared to disagree with manager Jurgen Klopp Following the 1-1 draw, Klopp criticized Spurs’ tactics, suggesting that their ‘world-class’ players could have made the game better.

Spurs took the lead through Son Heung-min before Luis Diaz equalised with a deflected strike. The draw gives Liverpool a mountain to climb if they are going to topple Manchester City and win the top-flight.

Red defender Van Dijk appeared to insist that Spurs played well and utilised their counter-attacking strengths.

It directly contradicts his manager’s claim that the North Londoners were overly cautious in their approach.

“It doesn’t feel like [a point rescued] at all. Obviously we knew their game plan, we knew the quality they have, especially on the break,” Van Dijk said.

“I  think on the ball we were just not good enough. We lost the ball in difficult situations and if you lose the ball in those situations you’re not well organised, so they can do what they are good at, he said.

“Every break on attacking corners was quite dangerous as well. In the end, it’s frustrating. It is frustrating to drop points, but we have to recover and play the remaining games.
