Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left baffled by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s comments about them.
Tottenham are currently challenging Liverpool for the Premier League title, and sit just six points behind Klopp’s side.
The Reds have now lost two matches on the bounce, which has caused ever so slight concern around Anfield.
But Klopp insists that Liverpool are at a disadvantage compared to Tottenham due to their injury problems.
"We already have problems. I saw Chelsea v Tottenham with both benches full, full squads, lucky them,” he said to the Liverpool Echo.
Spurs fans have been quick to hit back at Klopp, suggesting that he is totally wrong.
Tottenham fans claim that they had a number of youngsters on their bench against Chelsea, and Liverpool have had a far smoother ride with injuries this season than them.
Full squad with Lucas moura vertonghen dembele Eric dier wanyama all missing ok mate lol— jamie (@jamied90_) January 11, 2019
Correct me if I’m wrong but hasn’t he used 10 different combinations in midfield this season?— Paul O Keefe (@pokeefe1) January 11, 2019
He's had basically a fully fit squad all season to date. He spent a fortune on new players, he had practically a full preseason with most of his first team this summer when no one else did. Whats he on about the fraud.Spurs have had most of the first team injured & no pre-season— gavin (@gavinspurs) January 11, 2019
Crazy....we’ve had more injuries than liverpoo and they’ve spent £500 mil on players compared to our £0...starting to bottle it klopp— gazzaswiggle (@gazzaswiggle) January 11, 2019
Haha Skipp was on the bench against Chelsea. He will be pleased he is rated that highly by Pochettino and Klopp— Steve Worrell (@steve_worrell) January 11, 2019
Sounds to me like he's already creating excuses so his backs covered if they don't win it.— David (@DavidTHFC_) January 11, 2019
