Paul Merson is an Arsenal man and yet there are sometimes when he hates Liverpool more than Spurs. In the last game that Spurs lost to the Reds, Merson’s sympathies lie with Pochettino’s men.
According to Merson, it was Spurs who were always in the driving seat. He thinks they were the team more likely to win, and even deserve a win.
It doesn’t matter that Liverpool hit where it matters. First by grabbing the lead through Firmino and then the winner forced through Alderweireld. The level of the Premier League is such that you can’t make excuses after you miss the kind of chances that Spurs wasted.
“They will be kicking themselves about the result at Anfield,”.
“There only looked like one winner as the game went on and, in the end, they lost the game.
“How many times have we said that about Spurs in the last year?”

Yeah, right Paul. Pigs fly!
