Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal, the defensive duo for Tottenham Hotspur, got into a fight with Liverpool as halftime approached. With a two-goal lead going into the second half, Jurgen Klopp’s team put the North London club under tremendous pressure in the first half.

Before Andy Robertson doubled the lead at the end of the half, Mohamed Salah got back on the scoreboard with a header that went nearly post. For the majority of the first forty-five minutes, the Merseyside club held the majority of the possession and pressured the Spurs goal.

Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold had more defensive latitude down the right side, but Guglielmo Vicario largely prevented the hosts from scoring. After his two teammates fought, the 27-year-old had to intervene to mediate the situation by pulling Romero away from the Brazilian defender.

The resilience displayed by Ange Postecoglou, a defender, during a challenging first half impressed former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane.

“You know what? “I really don’t mind that kind of behavior because it shows that you care about the game,” Keane stated during the Liverpool vs. Spurs game on Sky Sports.

“However, they ought to play and defend with that kind of aggression. Spurs haven’t played well at all. That’s fine, but you need to introduce that level of aggression into their overall play, which is something the Spurs haven’t done.”

Shortly after the restart, Royal was involved in the build-up to Liverpool’s third goal when Harvey Elliott took him out of the game. Cody Gakpo scored his seventh Premier League goal of the year by towering over Romero.
