To say that Liverpool’s trip to Wembley on Sunday was an absolute disaster would be an understatement.

Jurgen Klopp’s men were thrashed 4-1 and produced a woeful performance in front of the biggest attendance in Premier League history.

Spurs were 2-0 ahead after 12 minutes and, despite Mohamed Salah pulling a goal back, the Reds were second best for the entirety.

In fact, Mauricio Pochettino’s side were so dominant that they started to take the mickey towards the end of the match.

Dele Alli was at the centre of that, nutmegging Emre Can brutally just moments after his back-heel split both James Milner and Salah.

But there was another moment that left Milner completely and utterly humiliated.

Milner was passed the ball by Joel Matip but he couldn’t sort his feet out quick enough. It saw him embarrassingly stumble backwards, falling to the ground.

It left Milner red-faced and summed up Liverpool’s afternoon.

Take a look:

Klopp on the loss

Unsurprisingly, Klopp was apoplectic after the match and slammed defensive mistakes for the loss.

"The whole game, the whole result was all our fault - Tottenham was good, they needed to be good, but we made it much too easy for them," he admitted.

"The first goal was a little throw in and we are not really there. It was just really bad, bad, bad defending.

"The second, a counter attack, when the ball passes Dejan Lovren it is already too late.

"Coming back in the game with the goal we had our chances, but it's nothing to talk about today.

"The third one, it's a completely open situation. We make the foul, again, all our fault. The fourth - second ball and third ball for Tottenham, their desire was bigger than ours.

"The game was finished then. We came here for a result and had not one second to get a result."
