Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho said that his side deserved to win Wednesday’s match at Liverpool, which ended in a 2-1 victory for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Roberto Firmino’s 90th-minute header settled a dramatic win for the defending champions, who had opened the scoring through Mohamed Salah in the first half before Son Heung-Min equalised minutes later.
Spurs nearly went ahead in the second half, with Harry Kane and Steven Bergwijn guilty of missing clear-cut opportunities. Those misses would prove costly and Mourinho felt his side deserved better at Anfield, despite having just 24 per cent possession and two shots on target compared to Liverpool’s 11.
“We deserved to win. I have to be disappointed,” Mourinho explained after the game. “Of course they had more of the ball but when we had it, we knew how to hurt them but we have to score the second, third goal, we have to score it to kill the game.
