Can, who started the game in defence but ended up in midfield, was noticeably Liverpool’s top performer.

However, statistics would suggest that Tottenham’s Erik Lamela was the best player on the pitch.

The Argentine attacker covered 12.13km – more ground than anyone else.

He was Tottenham’s most creative attacker, crafting three chances, as well as supplying a clever assist for Harry Kane’s first-half equaliser.

Lamela was also very impressive defensively, making six tackles – more than any player on either side.
