The 20-year-old Tottenham player helped his team when their defence was the most vulnerable in the match. Despite it, Liverpool managed to get the better out of the first half of the game.
In the 37th minute of the game, Roberto Firmino scored the opening goal of the game to break the deadlock before the half-time. Still, Tanganga’s goal save is significant, as it could have allowed Liverpool to dominate the whole game considering their form and style.
Regardless of the brilliant performance by the debutant, Liverpool has been dominating the Lilywhites and Spurs are hardly bothering them at the back.
Nevertheless, a certain section of the fans on social media was absolutely impressed by the efforts of Tanganga to save his side and have appreciated Mourinho on his find.
Liverpool is amidst their winning spree in the Premier League and if Tottenham allows the score-line to remain the same in the other half, the lead will further extend.
