The England international scored inside 50 seconds to give his side the lead against the team that beat them in the Champions League Final four months earlier. However, Spurs were unable to keep hold of their lead as the Reds came from a goal down to claim victory in the second half.
Kane claimed that Jurgen Klopp’s side were “getting those little breaks”, hinting that the Reds were lucky to get the victory (as per Neil Jones of Goal.)
Harry Kane to Sky
“Liverpool are getting those little breaks at the moment. It hurts to lose but we have to dust ourselves down.
“We dropped a little deep and soaked up the pressure. We had a big chance just after half time to go 2-0 up but unfortunately it hit the bar.”#LFC

Unfortunately for the Spurs striker, the match statistics do not back up the outlandish claims about Liverpool’s supposed luck. The Merseyside club had 21 shots with 12 of them on target as opposed to the visitors’ 11 attempts. The hosts also had 70% possession and eight corners, with Klopp stating that it was his team at their best.
Supporters accused Kane of possessing “sour grapes” while another said that his remarks came under the category of “loser talk”.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:

Not an unfair assessment. LFC had 21 shots and double the passes. Probably a fair result.

Harry Kane is a big girl’s blouse. Throwing himself on the ground like he’s been shot.
