for the first goal, Jose Mourinho decided to substitute Aurier, a decision which infuriated him Sources
claim that it ‘kicked off’ in a dressing room as players had it out
To make matters worse star striker Harry Kane is facing a ‘few weeks’ on the sidelines after suffering blows
to both ankles in the loss.
There was fury at the poor defensive errors that led to Roberto Firmino’s opener just before the break
which sparked angry exchanges between players.
Jose Mourinho decided to substitute Aurier at half-time a decision which infuriated the defender,
who promptly left the stadium.
Speaking before Sportsmail learned of Aurier’s exit, Jose Mourinho said of the half-time team talk: ‘
It was the mood of the team that was difficult to accept you are losing.
‘It’s difficult to accept the nature of the goal because the goal is in some aspects a replica of the chance
they had in the first minute. So it’s, of course, a mood where people are not happy.’
Sources claim it ‘kicked off’ in the home dressing room at half-time.
Kane limped off at half-time after taking blows to each ankle. The striker’s joints were both swollen as he
left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium sparking major concern of a lengthy layoff.
The striker will undergo assessments and scans over the next 48 hours – but Mourinho said: ‘Two ankles,
the first was a bad tackle, it was Thiago, the second one I didn’t know well.
‘But two injuries in both ankles, the second one worst than the first one – a few weeks, I don’t know.
‘For Harry to leave a game when he wants to play – it’s not a nothing injury.
How long we have to wait and see.’
Jurgen Klopp couldn’t contain his satisfaction as Liverpool won their first Premier League game in
six to give their title ambitions a timely boost. ‘I’m delighted, we played a great game – it was super intense.
We scored in the right moments -and all the right people scored,’ he said.
‘That was who we are – that was us. We showed massive fights and football. It was a good performance and
I saw a lot of things I wanted to see.’
