Heart break lane? Most certainly too. Must've certainly been for Pepe Reina. God only knows when was the last time he let in four in a single match. Maybe none in the League during his time with Liverpool. I vaguely recall once in a Champions League encounter against another London club a few seasons ago but we ended up scoring a couple ourselves. I need to check the stats on that.
Today's stats though were like this: 1-0 down and 9 men left. The scoreline at full-time was inevitable. Spurs didn't actually look like they were in the mood for being merciful earlier today.
Was it a referees' conspiracy in response to the King lashing out at their current standards after the Stoke game?
Was it a combination of an ageing/constantly-injured back two combo?
Was it the absence of Stevie Gerrard?
It didn't matter. The result was a bad one and there can be no excuse. Absolutely none.
