Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of securing a Champions League spot in the Premier League suffered another setback at Anfield on Sunday, May 5.

A rampant Jurgen Klopp-led Liverpool finally broke a dragging dismal run to romp to a 4-2 victory over the North London outfit .

Mohamed Salah, who fell out with Klopp for losing his starting role, marked his return to the starting lineup with a goal. The Egypt international scored in the 16th minute before Robertson doubled the lead at the stroke of the first half.

Cody Gakpo extended the lead again, scoring in the 50th minute to make it 3-0 before Harvey Elliot nailed home a screamer of a goal nine minutes later to cap an incredible goalscoring run by the home side.

Going down by four unreplied goals before the hour-mark, Tottenham would later halve the deficit through goals by Richarlison and skipper Son Heung-Min but Liverpool held on to grab a deserved 4-2 victory.

Premier League pundit and Manchester United legend Roy Keane was overly unimpressed with Tottenham Hotspur’s performance against the Reds.

Speaking on punditry duties with Sky Sports, Keane berated the team for only trying to improve their performance when they had gone down by multiple goals to the opponents.

“Yes we see it again, against Newcastle, Chelsea, Arsenal, and now Liverpool. They only improve their game when they have gone down by multiple goals,” Keane said

“Such could only be frustrating to the manager. They lack courage and need to show it,” he added.

For the record, Tottenham have conceded 12 goals in their last four games with all ending in a defeat. And notably, they have conceded first in all the games. According to Keane, the team has fallen recently due to lack of courage to go after opponents and only react after they have conceded first.

Despite having a game in hand over Aston Villa, who are strongly in the race for a top-four finish, Tottenham’s defeat to Liverpool have left the club’s hopes of securing Champions League football next season on the frays.

They are seven points away from Aston Villa. With three matches left to wrap up the season, they can only hope for a magical turnaround to close the 7-point gap and secure Champions League football next season.
