Liverpool fan comment on Spurs supporters goes viral after 1-1 Anfield draw

Tottenham and Liverpool played out a 1-1 draw at Anfield yesterday that did neither side many favours.

Spurs were left rueing two dropped points as they fight to win their first ever Premier League title, while Liverpool's slim chances of making the top four are all but over once more.

Phillippe Coutinho opened the scoring in the second half, before a superb Harry Kane effort levelled things up.

Although the two sides had chances to bag a winner, neither could, meaning both managers walked away from the match disappointed - but the same couldn't be said about both sets of fans.

Why? Well that's because a comment posted by a Liverpool fan on the Guardian's website which highlights the respect shown by Tottenham supporters has gone viral.

The comment, left by user Sam Bailey, highlighted Spurs' travelling contingent's good behaviour, and willingness to get behind their own team rather than criticise Liverpool.


"Here's an unusual comment, but it's worth making," the post read. "I'm a Liverpool supporter of 40 years, and a season ticket holder in the lower Anfield road, just five yards from the visiting supporters.

"Yesterday was the first time in years that supporters of one of the so-called big visiting sides simply got behind their own team! No "Demba Ba/Steven Gerrard" songs, no "in your Liverpool home" songs and no "Hillsborough or Heysel" songs that we had to endure at Anfield just weeks ago!!! Just support for their own, very very good side! Their supporters were a credit to their club."

Dropped points

Although Spurs' fans will no doubt be delighted to have earned such praise from their Liverpool counterparts, it will mean little if their team can't go on and win the league.

That looks increasingly unlikely as things stand, with Leicester 1-0 up in their game against Southampton. Claudio Ranieiri's side will take a seven point lead at the top of the Premier League if they go on and secure all three points.

Who are the best group of supporters in the Premier League?
