Ben Twelves 14 February 2017
Liverpool showed welcome signs of improved game management in their win over Tottenham, as the Reds closed out the contest in the second half.
Liverpool’s first Premier League win of 2017 was certainly worth the wait as the Reds blitzed Spurs with a spectacular performance boasting endless positives.
Beating top-six rivals yet again, the return of the lethal attack and relentless pressing game, Sadio Mane’s stunning showing, the collective display from the reconnected first-choice midfield…the list of plus points goes on.
But another impressive aspect of the victory was the improvement in Liverpool’s game management.
Boasting a two-goal cushion at half-time, the Reds needed a well-managed second half to see the game out—and they produced just that.
