See you soon

Bournemouth beat Man U, Newcastle beat Spurs, This topsy turvy season continues. At this rate Chelsea could even beat Leicester tomorrow

Very good Mr Osman. 

As a wise manager once told me, "I don't predict matches Alistair because I've no idea what will happen. That's why I go to watch in the first place."

Can't argue with that. Good night. 

The most unpredictable season yet?

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

Can you tell I've been filling?

Anyway it's been another unpredictable day in the Premier League. Some might say the quality is not as good but I'd rather have a league where the top two don't run away with it each year.

Friends again?

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

The conversation continued on the pitch afterwards with some of Tony Pulis's staff. But they shook hands in the end, and neither Jurgen Klopp or Pulis mentioned anything in their post-match interviews.

So what I was trying to say was....

But then it started to calm down again.

Why, you....

Then the German's face takes on a different look as he and Tony Pulis come closer together, perhaps to share a hug?

Oh and as for you....

Jurgen Klopp then turns to Tony Pulis, who I can only imagine was keeping his counsel for the whole game.

Have some of that!

Incidentally, there are some great pictures of Jurgen Klopp turning towards Tony Pulis after Divock Origi's injury-time goal. The German looked happy to get one over his West Brom counterpart, shall we say. 

It started like this....

Why celebrate a draw?

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp beckoned his players together at the final whistle to salute the Kop. 

Some wags on social media (non-Liverpool fans, presumably) have mocked the German for celebrating a home draw against a bottom-half team in such a manner. Others (Liverpool fans) reckon it shows a togetherness in the home dressing room.

Klopp explains why: "It was the best atmosphere since I came here. Of course people are disappointed but they didn't let us feel that. They saw that the lads tried everything and played football.

"We stayed in the game, had a few moments where we not so good, but only set plays that cost us. If we can do that better then maybe win games more easily."

Manager reaction - Pulis

Understandably West Brom manager Tony Pulis looks like a bloke who has just been told that he's having a plate of sprouts for his dinner. Not happy. 

"We're disappointed," says the Welshman, somewhat predictably. "We showed great resilience and to get done with a deflected goal in the eighth minute of stoppage time is particularly disappointing for the players.

"I can't fault the players. To come to a place like this with their budget, players and standing, we shouldn't be in their league.

On Albion having a goal ruled out for a 2-1 lead before half-time: "What disappointed me is the linesman doesn't put flag up. If he puts his flag up straight away it is offside. Why the referee goes over and talks to him I don't know."

Interesting that Jurgen Klopp decided that the injury-time equaliser could be a special moment, and the fact he led his team onto the pitch to celebrate it afterwards with the fans.

What did you make of that?

It could be a special moment - Klopp

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "I'm satisfied now because it was the perfect finish to this game. The one point was the minimum that we deserved today. Two set plays cost us, we knew about their quality in these situations but we tried. It was difficult.

"We created chances, made a perfect goal then conceded those two. But at the end I can live with it. This could prove to be a very special moment for us in the season to strike back against such a team."

On West Brom's disallowed goal just before half-time: "I saw no flag but at half-time I could see it was offside. I don't know how the referee and his linesman came to that decision - but it was the right decision."

Player reaction - Henderson

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson: "I think we're disappointed not to have won the game.

"I thought we created some good chances. We knew West Brom would sit in. We're frustrated but at the same time we were chasing the game and it's great to see Divock come on and get the goal.

"After the equaliser I thought we had the momentum to get another goal, I thought we'd sneak another. We kept going but it wasn't to be."

On Albion's disallowed 'goal' moments before half-time: "We said at half-time it was the right decision. It looked offside. I saw the referee speaking to the linesman and they decided it was offside - I think that was right decision."

Leaving it late in Liverpool

Right let's get some reaction from this afternoon's other game, where Divock Origi scored an injury-time leveller for Liverpool.

'We are disappointed in the dressing room'

Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to Sky Sports: "The first half was fantastic, we played very well. One of the best games that we have shown but in the second half, yes maybe there was a lack of competitiveness and we gave them an opportunity to score. 

"We are very disappointed in the dressing room. It wasn’t fair the final result, we need to explain the second half because it was very different to the first. It’s difficult to explain now. But my feelings are disappointment, because the game is under control. You have to compete for 95 minutes. It’s true that the second half we gave them chances.

"This is our 16th league game and our second defeat. It is a bad feeling but we need to work hard and look forward."

'Impossible to explain'

Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC Sport: "I think our first half was fantastic; we dominated the game. The second is not easy to explain. We made mistakes and we feel very disappointed now because we did not deserve to lose. But that is football and you need to compete over 95 minutes. Today was difficult.

"The game was under control. We conceded two goals because we made simple mistakes but we need to look forward. In football it is impossible sometimes to explain why.

"After 45 minutes you never expected to lose the game. Thursday [in the Europa League] is not an excuse, there is nothing to say about Thursday. It is not about physical condition. We gave the ball away and needed more control. We conceded two easy goals and that is why we are disappointed.

"This defeat does not change my feeling - I am happy with the squad. You always look at options but I am very happy with the squad I have."

'We haven't turned the corner'

Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

Newcastle boss Steve McClaren: "It was a big test, especially being 1-0 down at half-time. It's answered the critics we have had over last four weeks and it was a great performance in the second half and a great result. 

"That is what we are: a bedrock of discipline and hard work. We have talented players, and they know how to win, we just have to do it consistently. 

"[The goals from the subs] are nothing to do with my decision, it's down to the players on the pitch, they have to impact. We asked them to win the game and that's what they did. 

"We haven't turned the corner yet, we need more performances like that. We have been inconsistent."

That is what we are - McClaren

Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

Newcastle manager Steve McClaren, speaking to Sky Sports: "The result is huge, massive. Not just the performance but the result. Back-to-back wins, which we haven’t had for about a year, and we haven't had a comeback win for over a year. These are the things that test the team and they have shown fantastic character. 

"That is what we are and that is what we want to be. The players showed fantastic effort, attitude, work-rate, and we have some talented players as well. We deserved the win with the second half we had.

"There was a great response at half-time from my players. I didn't have to say anything, they said it all. The resilience they showed in the second half was fantastic. We need to keep that going now, week in week out.

"Pat on the back for the subs. Ayoze Perez and Aleksandar Mitrovic didn't play the last game but were ready to come on and had that impact. They’re winners again.

"There’s still a long way to go. But after a lot of criticism the players have come back well to get to magnificent results. To be out of the bottom three is obviously huge, but getting a result from a performance like that really boosts you."

Spurs burnt out?

Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

Spurs looked like the European game had taken it's toll with a laboured second half. Newcastle had energy and spirit #bbcfootball #nufc

Yes Mark, but Spurs made six changes. Can you explain that? They have already played 24 games this season.

'We feel euphoric'

Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

Newcastle goalkeeper Rob Elliot speaking to Sky Sports: "It's a bit euphoric to be fair, the fans have been unbelievable sticking with us. The lads were amazing and after last week, we had to make sure we didn't take our foot off the gas. The boys who came on to score the goals have been a bit unlucky not to play from the start. When we all play together you see what happens."

Newcastle goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic to Sky Sports: "I've worked hard and waited for my moment. I've worked with the fitness coach every day when I came on he said I was going to score. It was a goal for him today. Rob, too was on fire."

GOAL Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

Ayoze Perez

It's even more disappointing now. The ball is headed through to Ayoze Perez, who chests it down and slams it toward goal under the diving Hugo Lloris. The Spurs keeper should have done better there.

"That is a whisker away! I can't believe he's missed that. How? What a chance to win the game."

CLOSE!

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle

Should be a winner for Newcastle. Moussa Sissoko crosses from the right and I don't know how Aleksandar Mitrovic has missed this. He's six yards out, a yard from the ball and somehow did not connect. 

Four minutes to come

Alas, it's played short and is eventually cleared. Tottenham are on the break now but Newcastle retreat and block Dele Alli's shot which spoons towards Rob Elliot in the Newcastle goal.
