Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed his side's first-half performance in their 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur, while criticising the refereeing display from Jon Moss and his assistants.

"The game was a very intense game; two really good sides with real challenges," Klopp said in his post-match press conference

"First half, a lot of moments when it could have been a free-kick but the ref said today, ‘OK, that’s the game, that’s allowed’, but the softest touch in the whole game decides the game. It’s not a penalty, it’s a situation. 

"I heard Lamela was even offside in the situation with one leg. [He was] running into Virgil van Dijk, Virgil sees him in the last moment and stops the movement but still touches him, Lamela is already on the way down. The ref says ‘keep on going’, the linesman makes the decision – that’s how it is, that’s how everyone saw.
