''God Is A Liverpool Fan'' Reds Rejoice As Tottenham Sensationally Blow Chance To Close Gap

Jurgen Klopp has been given a massive boost in the Premier League title race

It all seemed to be going so well for Tottenham Hotspur. At ‘home’ at Wembley, Harry Kane did what he always seems to do, putting the hosts up against Wolverhampton Wanderers after 22minutes with a beautiful curler.

Few would have predicted it would have all gone so south for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, with three second-half replies by Wily Boly, Raul Jimenez, and Helder Costa sealing a remarkable turnaround, with the visitors to take all three points back to the Black Country.

The win for Wolves reverberated far and wide, particularly in the north-west as Liverpool – table toppers already going into the New Year – prepared to take on Spurs’ fierce North London rivals Arsenal in the late Saturday tea-time kickoff.

At the start of the day, Liverpool were already seven points clear of nearest rivals Spurs and Manchester City, but would have expected the Lilywhites to close the gap to four with a routine home victory. Spurs had won six of the eight games they had played at the national stadium.

With this not to be, Reds fans took to social media in droves to celebrate one of their challengers slipping up, with the smell of their first ever Premier League title so pungent at the moment for Jurgen Klopp’s men;

"With Tottenham losing and City playing tomorrow this is a bigggggggg chance to extend and apply pressure. C’mon you REDS" (@ConnorTaylor_94)

"Now it’s time to just cross our fingers and win this game!" (xs_ashleigh)

"I truly believe God is a Liverpool fan this season. He's doing everything in his power to ensure Liverpool lift the title!" (@kusanvinvin)

"We can afford to loose our next two “big” matches and still be top of the league" (@uri_tyler)

"@SpursOfficial [Harry Kane] won the MBE and bottled the league after one game tittle challenge" (@monty_darwish)

Of course, Arsenal fans also popped up to share the enjoyment, despite them having the daunting trip to Anfield later in the afternoon

"After that Tottenham result it doesn’t really matter when we get turned over by Liverpool later on" (@yussilaflare)

It really does seem Liverpool’s title to lose now. A win over Arsenal will put them nine points clear. The long three-decade wait may well be over.
