Ex-Liverpool manager Roy Evans is full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur after watching them play out a 1-1 draw with the Reds at Anfield on Saturday.

Liverpool took the lead after an impressive move resulted in Philippe Coutinho making no mistake with a neat side-footed finish past Hugo Lloris in the Spurs' goal.

But Harry Kane shrugged off the attentions of Dejan Lovren to make space to fire an effort into the corner of the net to make sure Spurs would leave Merseyside with at least a point.

Evans was hugely impressed with what he saw from the north London outfit against his beloved Liverpool and complimented the way they mix up their game when needed.

The former Liverpool manager also thinks Mauricio Pochettino's men are continuing to get better, a daunting prospect for the rest of the Premier League.


Evans said on LFC TV after the match: "They have been really consistent and are an improving team. I like the look of them and the way they play.

"They are not all about possession either, they've got a mix in their game.

"With the likes of Harry Kane, he will run behind defences, he's not just waiting for the ball to be played up to him.

"So they have a nice difference in the way they play. With their possession they try to penetrate", Evans added.

Spurs were made to pay for dropping two points at Anfield after Leicester City beat Southampton to extend their lead over the north London club to seven points at the top of the Premier League.

Both games between Liverpool and Spurs this season have ended as draws.
