Video: Draw at Liverpool was a fair result – assistant Tottenham boss
Tottenham assistant manager Kevin Bond admits his side deserved to share the spoils with Liverpool after Monday's goalless draw at Anfield
Kevin Bond insisted that a draw was a fair result after Tottenham Hotspur left Liverpool with a point on Monday night.
Gareth Bale squandered the visitors’ best chance of the game in the 84th minute at Anfield, while Andy Carroll looked a threat in front of Brad Friedel’s goal during a closely contested Premier League clash.
But neither side were able to break the deadlock, and the goalless draw leaves Tottenham seven points behind league leaders Manchester City.
“They made us defend for our lives at times, especially in the second half and we did that really well,” said Bond. “The players all put their bodies on the line, the centre-halves, Scott Parker, they all did a great job for us.
“We didn’t create as many chances as we would have liked to, in all honesty, but then again we had the best chance of the game.”
Reflecting on Bale’s chance to win it late on, Bond added: “I was just waiting for the linesman to put his flag up. He didn’t, and in fairness to the goalkeeper he stood up well. It wasn’t to be and in the end it was a draw was probably a fair result.”
