Glenn Hoddle says that Jurgen Klopp will be pleased with the clean sheet Liverpool kept at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Glenn Hoddle has highlighted in The Daily Mail a positive that Liverpool can take from their game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Liverpool failed to win the Premier League match against North London outfit Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

The Reds played out a goalless draw with Spurs in what was Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge of the Merseyside outfit.

Former Tottenham midfielder Hoddle was following the match, and he has highlighted one positive that Liverpool can take from their performance.

“What will have pleased him (Klopp) is the clean sheet,” Hoddle wrote in The Daily Mail. “There was a clear defensive improvement from the derby match against Everton, where Liverpool were all over the place at times.

“They were solid-looking, blocked well and closed down opponents. Maybe that will be the foundation from which he will build.”

A point away from home is not a bad result in the Premier League, and Klopp will be pleased that Liverpool did not lose to Tottenham.

A clean sheet is certainly a positive for the Reds, who struggled defensively under the German’s predecessor at Anfield, Brendan Rodgers.

Klopp will now want his Liverpool players to build on the performance against Tottenham and start winning matches.

The Merseyside outfit are 10th in the Premier League table at the moment with 13 points from nine matches.
