Liverpool and Tottenham played out a top class Premier League encounter tonight as the top four rivals showed their hands in London.
McManaman praises Cody Gakpo skill against Tottenham
Speaking about Gakpo’s well-taken goal for PL Productions, McMmanaman felt it was brilliant from the Dutchman to slot it away as he did.
“The turn and connection he [Cody Gakpo] makes on it is superb – absolutely superb! Liverpool are right back in this game, and they deserve it to be honest,” McManaman said.
Moment of class
Cody Gakpo is proving to be a fine signing for Liverpool. At times, he shows moments of class that make his £35m fee look a bargain.
The goal from him in this game summed up what he can bring to the table and as McManaman says here, it was a superb piece of improvisation to score.
Liverpool have looked a real threat all season and Gakpo has been central to a lot of that good player.
Of course, two Red cards for Liverpool at Spurs today won’t help anything going forward. But if Gakpo can keep finding moments like this, then the Reds will be ok.
Certainly, they showed enough today against a tough Spurs outfit that they’re more than good enough to push into those top four places.
