Liverpool and Spurs draw blank at Anfield

Tottenham Hotspur FC are seven points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City FC having been held to a goalless draw by seventh-placed Liverpool FC at Anfield.

Tottenham Hotspur FC moved a point closer to the top two in the Premier League following a goalless draw at Liverpool FC.

Spurs are now five points adrift of second-placed Manchester United FC and a further two behind leaders Manchester City FC. Liverpool, meanwhile, stay seventh and are four points shy of fourth-placed Chelsea FC.

Kenny Dalglish's side remain unbeaten at home this term but have nevertheless struggled for goals at Anfield – scoring just 14 in 11 league fixtures – and again, despite showing more endeavour for much of the game, were unable to unpick a superbly-disciplined Spurs defence.

Indeed, it was not until after the interval that the Reds carved out a clear-cut opening, Andy Carroll blasting over when free in the penalty area. Luis Suárez almost had a decisive say late on after coming off the bench on his return from suspension, but headed straight at Brad Friedel.

It was Spurs, though, who ultimately created the clearest opening of the match between those two opportunities for Liverpool. It fell to Gareth Bale, already in double figures in the Premier League this term, but the Wales winger shot straight at Pepe Reina having been sent clean through and in behind the home defence.
