The Reds suffered a massive defeat at the hands of Spurs and the 26-year-old admitted his side were no match for their opponents
Joel Matip has admitted that Tottenham were the better side in their 4-1 drubbing of Liverpool in Sunday’s English Premier League encounter.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were put to the sword by a Harry Kane double and strikes by Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli which rendered Mohamed Salah’s goal a consolation.
And the former Cameroon international who started at the heart of a Kops’ defence run ragged by Spurs’ attack said that Mauricio Pochettino’s side were a touch of class above them.
“They were the better team. We only came back for a short time [in the game] and that is not enough to win against Tottenham,”
“We’ll try to strike back next week.”
Matip also took part of the blame for Liverpool’s defence that was ripped apart by an effective and ruthless Tottenham attack saying they have to do better and cut out errors from their game.
