Friends Of Liverpool

After another frustrating draw at Anfield, this time against Spurs, Liverpool had to settle for a scoreless draw with the Londoners.

Despite taking the game to 3rd placed Tottenham, Liverpool failed to break down a stubborn defence in which Dawson, King and  Parker at times excelled at repelling everything Liverpool threw at them.

Clearly playing for a point, Spurs minus Harry Rednapp, who was stranded in London poor chap, early in the contest realised that Liverpool were up for this game.

They decided to play deep and hope to catch Liverpool on the break.

They did once with ‘simulator’ Gareth Bale having a prodded shot saved by Reina.

Liverpool had shots of their own by Spearing, Kelly, Carroll and Kuyt plus a late header by the returning Luis Suarez into the grateful arms of Brad Friedel.

But Liverpool had to settle for a point which leaves them rooted in 7th place in the Premier League.

After the game Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish was quizzed about the return of Luis Suarez following his eight-match ban:
“Fantastic for us to get Suarez back – he should never have been out in the first place,” Dalglish told Sky Sports. “It would have been totally unfair to start him, having not played since Boxing Day. As much as we admire and love him, we’ve also got to manage him.”

Well said Kenny, lets hope your comments are not jumped on by the Holier than thou brigade, Suarez was harshly treated by the Evra incident and it is great to have the talented striker back playing for Liverpool again.

Should be an interesting game against Utd at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon with Evra and Suarez likely to be on the same pitch again, expect sparks to fly.
