Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Right, that's Jurgen Klopp's first game as Liverpool manager done and dusted. Both teams worked hard and, ultimately, cancelled each other out. A draw was probably a fair result.

'Klopp's approach today has been spot on'

Garth Crooks

Former Spurs striker on Final Score

"Klopp's approach today has been spot on. He is charismatic, effervescent and an innovator, but today he displayed calm and caution. Nothing flash, just getting the job done. Liverpool are going home and can build on this."

'Klopp has been brought in to break dominance'

Garth Crooks

"Klopp has been brought in by Liverpool to try and break dominance at the top of the league. There are actually very few managers who can do that, but of course Howard Kendall was one of them."

"Tottenham probably edged it. Liverpool were excellent in the first 20 minutes but since then Spurs have been the better the side and they would have deserved a win - just about. 

"I'm sure Jurgen Klopp will be more than delighted with a clean sheet away to Tottenham in his first game."

It's all over. Jurgen Klopp starts his reign as Liverpool boss with a hard-fought draw.

This is a chance, then, but the Reds waste it. Alberto Moreno drills his shot straight at the wall.

INJURY TIME

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

There will be three minutes of added time at White Hart Lane. Is there a goal in this game? Maybe - Liverpool have a free-kick right on the edge of the box after Dele Alli fouls James Milner.

CLOSE!

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Just as I was about to say this game is petering out, Emre Can lets fly with a snap-shot from the edge of the area. It fizzes a fraction wide. to the frustration of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

Jordon Ibe is coming on as substitute for Philippe Coutinho - and he will do so with his ears ringing after getting a right old rollocking from Jurgen Klopp for being too slow getting ready to come on. He's not all smiles that's for sure.

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

A change for both teams. Jordon Ibe is on for Philippe Coutinho for Liverpool, while Spurs replace Erik Lamela with Andros Townsend.

"That was the chance! What a save by Simon Mignolet though. It was a brilliant run from Christian Eriksen, and Harry Kane might have done better looking to bend one in the far corner."

GREAT SAVE!

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

There have not been many clear chances in this second half but Spurs have just created one, with Christian Eriksen teeing up Harry Kane on the edge of the area. Again Reds keeper Simon Mignolet is there, springing to his left to push the ball away.

Danny Murphy

"It's a sensible move from Jurgen Klopp rather than an attacking one. I can see why he wants to move a midfielder in to sit in front of the defence."

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

A first change by Jurgen Klopp. Adam Lallana is off, Joe Allen is on for his 100th Liverpool appearance.

Danny Rose comes out worse from another clash with James Milner but play goes on and Liverpool break forward. The ball comes to Divock Origi on the left of the area but his low shot is smothered by Hugo Lloris, as a chorus of boos are aimed at referee Craig Pawson.

Kritt Normsaskul: A shame Son isn't playing because of injury. He could have made a difference in a tight game like this.

Paul Collins: Liverpool need stop trying walk it in when they're near the Spurs area.

Mark Taylor: Harry Kane will certainly play against better centre-backs than Martin Skrtel, but definitely not one as cynical.

"It's been an intense game and some players are starting to tire. If I were Jurgen Klopp, I'd be thinking about bringing Jordon Ibe on to inject a little bit of pace from here."  

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Spurs have been under a bit of pressure but Harry Kane has just helped them win their first corner of the second half. 

It is cleared easily as far as Kyle Walker, whose shot from distance clears the bar by, erm, quite a distance. If that was me, I'd be blaming that knock he just picked up...

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

A break in play as Spurs right-back Kyle Walker gets treatment. I think he tweaked something when he over-stretched for a ball, but he is going to try to continue.

A good spell for Liverpool, this, but there is nothing at the end of it as Adam Lallana dances into the area but cannot get a cross or a shot away. 

The camera pans to tennis legend Boris Becker, who is in the crowd at White Hart Lane today. Another Klopp fan?

"Not a penalty for me - Adam Lallana just lost his balance and fell over."

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Adam Lallana goes to ground in the right-hand corner of the area and wants a penalty. He has certainly made himself heard today, but sadly for the Liverpool forward, referee Craig Pawson is not convinced by the incident or Lallana's loud appeals.

"This is the Mousa Dembele I know and love. He hasn't produced this form often enough in a Tottenham shirt but he's been far and away their best player today."

Phil McNulty

Huge smile from Jurgen Klopp as Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris is chased down and forced into a hurried clearance. He likes that. And then another grin as he has a chat with Mauricio Pochettino after the Spurs boss had furiously disputed a decision.

Nick UTA: Liverpool utterly toothless up front and wobbly at the back. Klopp has a lot of work to do.

Kewku Adaboh: Origi is not, and will not be, a Liverpool goalscorer.

Dan: A German man called Klopp / Said the rubbish must stop / He kept stressing / A game of high pressing / Now he's the hero of the Kop.

National Poetry Day was last week, Dan. Sadly.

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Liverpool's James Milner does well to nip in and win possession by the half-way line but Tottenham's Moussa Dembele does even better to get back and nick the ball back from Divock Origi on the edge of the area. More evidence of the impressive work-rate from both teams, but it is not going to bring us a goal.

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

We pass the hour mark with this game still goalless. I don't think we are at the stage where either team would settle for a point, but they are both keeping things pretty tight at the moment.

YELLOW CARD

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Some lovely intricate stuff from Liverpool on the edge of their own area just now but this game has been more about blood and thunder, and the challenges continue to fly in. Erik Lamela is the latest player to go in Craig Pawson's book, after lunging in on Alberto Moreno.

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

A couple of shots from distance - first a daisy-cutter from Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho, and then a palm-stinger from Kyle Walker at the other end. It was still a routine stop for Simon Mignolet though.

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Shades of Sunday League here: Liverpool are on the attack but Adam Lallana was not expecting a throw from Alberto Moreno to come in his direction near the left-hand corner flag and can do little more than let it bounce off him. When it goes out of play he lets Moreno know exactly know what he thinks... and he wasn't happy.

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Liverpool have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last eight games and it is looking like a big ask for them to manage one today. Spurs are stepping up the pressure and keeping them pinned back in their own half. Jurgen Klopp would approve, but he won't be enjoying watching it.

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Another sniff for Spurs as Christian Eriksen bends a free-kick in from out on the left. Toby Alderweireld tries to get on the end of it but it bounces through to Simon Mignolet.

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

After a quick break while James Milner gets treatment for an injury, some sloppy stuff from Liverpool in defence as Emre Can gives the ball away on the edge of his own area. 

Christian Eriksen picks it up and Spurs have men over, but his lifted pass is not precise enough to pick any of them out.

KICK-OFF

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Spurs get the second half started. No changes from either manager at the break.

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Tottenham came back into the game in the last 20 minutes of the first half - as well as those chances, they were seeing more of the ball before the interval, as shown by the graphic below.

I wonder what Jurgen Klopp had to say about it at half-time?

HALF-TIME

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer at White Hart Lane

Good first half. Jurgen Klopp will be pleased at how Liverpool have clearly tried to implement his "gegenpressing" (high pressing basically) style but might be a little less satidfied at a lack of high quality. He has also been unimpressed with how Liverpool have been setting up to defend corners - a few of the coaching staff left over from the Brendan Rodgers era have been getting it in the ear over that.

'I can't wait for the second half to start'

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Danny Murphy

Ex-Liverpool midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live at White Hart Lane

"A thoroughly enjoyable first half - there wasn't a moment to breathe. There was commitment and tenacity, and both managers will be reasonably happy because both sides enjoyed good spells. 

"I can't wait for the second half to start."

HALF-TIME

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

A clap of the hands from Jurgen Klopp as he departs down the tunnel. I expect he will give Simon Mignolet a slap on the back for his saves in the first half when he gets back to the Liverpool dressing room.

INJURY TIME

Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

There will be two minutes of stoppage time at the end of the first half. Plenty of positives for Jurgen Klopp to begin with, and his Liverpool side have gone closest to scoring, but Spurs will feel they should be in front based on the number of chances created.
