Rush, Neville and more: Twitter reacts as Liverpool draw with Tottenham
Ian Rush and Gary Neville both tweet their thoughts as Liverpool are held to a goalless draw at Tottenham
Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge of Liverpool ended in a goalless draw at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.
The German, who was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at White Hart Lane earlier this month, watched his side dominate the opening exchanges but fail to make the crucial breakthrough.
Divock Origi was handed his first Premier League start up front, and the striker hit the bar with a first-half header.
Tottenham’s best efforts came when substitute Clinton N’Jie and Harry Kane tested Simon Mignolet, however the game ended up all square.
Saturday’s early kick-off inevitably prompted plenty of activity on social media – and here are some of our favourite updates.
Liverpool legend Ian Rush is looking forward to the game:

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville is getting frustrated by BT Sport’s live coverage of the game:
Get that box off!

Stan Collymore assesses the opening exchanges at White Hart Lane:
Some effort for #LFC to maintain tempo. Managers will say “let them burn out, then pick them off”. Hardest lge to play at this pace.

And that just leaves former Manchester United man Alan Tonge to have the final say:
Only difference to Liverpool there was that Klopp had them pressing more (should be a given anyway). Not bad for 7 million a year.
