Wasn't sure at the usual blame game, so had another couple of looks at it.
First thing, Henderson gets barged off the ball.
It wasn't shoulder to shoulder, the Spurs player went through the back of him.
Gini gets left on his arse, Fabinho nowhere on the cover, TAA tries to show Son outside, and fails, Henderson catches up, just as Son cuts back.
So not really sure how that catalogue of errors became the fault of one player rather than 4, but it's always the way here, to try and single one player out as a scapegoat.
In recent years, it's been Lucas, Gini, Lovren, Matip and Henderson.
People have been banging on about Lovren's "mistake" against Genk, but the fact is he should have had cover, and not had to charge out to the RB position in the first place.
He didn't have the cover because we played Keita and AOC.
