James Milner has been speaking about our 1-1 draw with Spurs at the weekend.
The vice-captain put us ahead on the stroke of half-time from the penalty spot, but Danny Rose stuck a second half equaliser to ensure the honours were split.
Sadly, it could have been a lot better. Joel Matip hit the bar with a header, while Sadio Mane had a goal ruled out for offside after a decision that looked highly marginal at best.
“I think it’s disappointing because it was another pretty good performance. It could have been better obviously and was not quite the result we wanted,” said Milner. (via official site)
“Some people might just look at the result; it was a good performance, it was solid and they weren’t breaking on us every time they got the ball. But ultimately, we didn’t get the result and they scored two goals. So we learn from that.
“But I think you can see the basics and how we want to play. The philosophy is there. We just have to make sure we use that to get results.”
We now go on a two-week international break. Our next game is a home tie against reigning champions Leicester City on 10th September.
