Liverpool ran out 2-1 winners at Wembley but the scoreline did not speak about the true nature of the game.
The Reds were the better side throughout the 90 minutes and a late goal from Erik Lamela provided a nervy end to the match.
Liverpool should have scored half a dozen or so but poor finishing and decision-making almost cost us the three points.
The Reds ran Tottenham out of the park and Georginio Wijnaldum scored the first goal for us. The Dutch midfielder hasn’t scored enough for us but this was his first goal away from home in the Premier League.
Roberto Firmino got the other goal but Wijnaldum was one of our best players on the pitch. The former Newcastle man doesn’t often get praised for his performances but some Liverpool fans were ecstatic with the midfielder’s efforts at Wembley.
Gini Wijnaldum is our best holding midfielder. What a brilliant performance from him.
Fabinho & Hendo have their work cut out to displace him.

The Gini Wijnaldum evolution under klopp is amazing
Signed as a 10

Excelling as a 6
Hands up who saw that coming? #lfc

Gini Wijnaldum now has 9 goals vs top 6 opposition since the start of the 2015/16 season.
A fantastic feat considering no other central midfielder has scored more than 4 and De Bruyne, Özil & Lukaku all play further forward and have just 7, 6 and 6 respectively. pic.twitter.com/sDs5yzLTXz

Ok, think it’s official now: Gini Wijnaldum has all the qualities of a top class (maybe eventually world class) holding midfielder. That may not be the best news for Henderson or Fabinho, but sure is for #LFC

Liverpool have bought nearly £100m of midfielders and yet we are talking about Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner. That Jurgen Klopp is not too shabby.

I mean it’s great news that we’ve signed a £40 million defensive midfielder, have the captain on the bench and Gini Wijnaldum is now decided he fancied being the best at that position in the world. Yes Gini.
