“Forever a Spurs legend”, “Sweet revenge”: Some Tottenham fans ecstatic as ex-player scores in win vs Liverpool

Former Tottenham star Llorente scores against Liverpool in the Champions League

Liverpool’s Champions League defence didn’t start off well as they were defeated 2-0 by Napoli in Italy.

The defending champions were on the end of a questionable penalty call but Dries Mertens made no mistake from the spot in the 82nd minute.

Liverpool then tried to get back into the game and were made to pay when Virgil van Dijk passed the ball to Fernando Llorente.

The former Tottenham striker came off the bench to slot past Adrian and ensured the Italians started their campaign extremely well.

Liverpool did have chances to score and both teams were equally matched, but Napoli shaded it in terms of better chances and took their opportunities well to earn the win.

Adrian had to make three excellent saves in the game to keep things level before Mertens just about got his penalty past the keeper.

Revenge for the final

Tottenham were beaten in the Champions League final, which also featured a questionable penalty call early on, and Llorente seems to have some backing from their supporters.

The Spaniard left when his contract with the London side ended and has done well when playing in Italy in the past.

The former Swansea star took his chance well in the 92nd minute and many Tottenham supporters believed this was some revenge for the loss in the final a few months ago.
