Gary Neville says there is a sense that “something’s just happening” at Liverpool FC after Sunday’s dramatic victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds managed to etch out a narrow 2-1 win against Mauricio Pochettino’s men despite a disappointing second-half performance from the Premier League leaders.

Liverpool FC appeared to be in control of the Premier League clash when Roberto Firmino headed past Hugo Lloris following Andy Robertson’s ninth assist of the season.

However, Tottenham were much better in the second half after a tactical adjustment and Lucas Moura deservedly equalised with 20 minutes to go.

The Reds remained on the back foot as Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli squandered chances to score a late winner for the visitors.

Liverpool FC managed to find a late winner when Hugo Lloris could only parry Mohamed Salah’s header into the path of Toby Alderweireld, who deflected the ball into the net.

Jurgen Klopp’s side moved two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table following the added-time winner.

And former Manchester United defender Neville has now spoken about the growing “feeling” that something special is happening at Anfield.

“They weren’t at their best, Liverpool, and once Tottenham sorted out the tactical side of things in the first half where they just had a problem with the narrow midfield getting out to the full-backs – Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold were running wild down those wings – Tottenham played a good game here and will feel really disappointed.,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“We used to have this saying at United: ‘Something’s just happening’. You can’t explain it. Tottenham looked the most dangerous. Liverpool had some threat from set-pieces but not really from open play. But if you can grab those late goals when the other team look most likely to score, you have that feeling.

“Liverpool haven’t been at their best – they weren’t against Fulham but they have got the result and they’re in a good position.

“There’s a long way to go. For all the passion and emotion shown it’s a time for composure and cool heads because they have six more. Probably one or two they’ll win easily but there’ll be three or four that’ll be like that.

“That’s not the end of it today – it’s just the beginning of The Run In.”

Liverpool FC have never won the Premier League title – and their last top-flight success was in 1990.

The Reds have finished in second place in three previous seasons under three different managers.
