Liverpool ace Georginio Wijnaldum spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's fine 2-1 away win at Tottenham yesterday, and shared how he and his teammates had been planning to target Michel Vorm during the week leading up to the game, as quoted by the Sun.

The Dutch stopper was arguably at fault for both goals, and he looked particularly susceptible when balls were whipped into his penalty area.


Vorm botched an attempted punch clear from a Liverpool corner in 39th minute - an error that led to Wijaldum's opener.

And the Reds ace responded to reporters when asked whether Jürgn Klopp had instructed his players prior to the game to target the Tottenham 'keeper from crosses, as quoted by the Sun:

"It was a plan. We trained on it before."

With Hugo Lloris currently out injured, Vorm's display today must be a real concern for Mauricio Pochettino, and he will surely consider starting Paulo Gazzaniga away at Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday.
