Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool lost their opening game of the new season to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane today.
Playing without Xabi Alonso for the first time since his move to Madrid, the Reds looked lethargic in the first half, with only one shot towards goal by Captain Steve Gerrard.
Spurs took the lead close to the break when defender Assou-Ekotto scored a screamer from outside the box.
Liverpool looked much better in the second half and a goal came when a great run by Glen Johnson into the box resulted in a penalty for Gerrard to hammer home.
This should have been the boost Liverpool needed to push on and win the game but Jamie Carragher gave away a free-kick from which, new-boy Bassong headed Tottenham back into the lead again.
Liverpool drove forward time and again trying to find a deserved equaliser and they should have had a second penalty when sub Voronin was bundled over in the box by that Ekotto fella.
The penalty was harshly not given and though the Reds pushed and pushed, Spurs held on for the win.
