VIDEO: Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham Ė Spurs Disrupts The Redís Title Race

The great Premier League title race disruptor was at it again as Tottenham manager Antonio Conte achieved what was starting to look impossible and stopped the Liverpool steamroller in its tracks.

Conte is an elite manager who is perfectly suited to elite games and a deserved 1-1 draw at Anfield was testimony to the Italian's tactical and organizational skill, putting a twist into the season's league climax.

It is not the first time he has thrown a spanner in the title works, having led Spurs to a 3-2 win at Manchester City in February. He has now overseen two draws against Liverpool, and the north London club is undefeated in their four league games against arguably Europe's two top sides.

There was a sense of anti-climax around Anfield at the final whistle. That the home fans were subdued was understandable given the game began draped in an air of celebration in the wake of Liverpool reaching the Champions League final, where they will meet Real Madrid in Paris.

It has for several weeks been a case of who would blink first between Liverpool and City and it was Jurgen Klopp's side who dropped points - but this was as much down to the excellence of Spurs as a rare night when they failed to touch their usual heights.

In the wider context, it was a result that was not ideal for either team, as City have the opportunity to strengthen their position and return to an enhanced position at the top of the table against Newcastle United at Etihad Stadium on Sunday, while Arsenal can assert their authority in the race for the top four at home to struggling Leeds United. The Gunners currently stand in fourth place, a point ahead of Spurs, who have played a game more.
