12.03.2022 Tottenham’s Under-23s suffered a really bad day at the office as they sank to a 1-7 away defeat at the hands of Liverpool at their Academy ground. 

Pressing high up the pitch, Liverpool forced errors from the Spurs defence and punished them mercilessly.  Having saved a shot from Conor Bradley, Josh Oluwayemi was beaten when he had to simple task of converting Woltman’s pass in the 16th minute.  The provider then turned scorer nine minutes later, squeezing a shot home from a tight angle on the left after beating two Spurs players in the box and then within two more minutes it was 3-0 when James Norris beat Oluwayemi with a fierce effort.

With only 34 minutes on the clock Liverpool made it 4-0, with the Spurs keeper penalised for a foul on Bearne after keeping out Musialowski’s original effort on goal, giving Leighton Clarkson the opportunity to convert from the spot.  The same player repeated the feat four minutes into added time of the first half, when handball was given after the ball was played back in following a corner.  

Spurs introduced Jamie Bowden and his influence on the side was noticeable, passing intelligently and we had a good chance when Jamie Donley’s header could only pick out the home keeper.  The Spurs goalie was relieved when he pushed out a cross to Bearne, who missed from a couple of yards out.  J’Neil Bennett pulled one goal back in the 54th minute when he came inside form the right touchline to drill a shot across Pitaluga from the edge of the penalty area.  Donley then was put through with only the keeper to beat, but his attempted dink was saved by Pitaluga and Liverpool made the most of the escape, going 6-1 ahead in the 66th minute when Bearne scored, although Spurs were frustrated that nothing had been given for what seemed like an obvious foul on Paskotsi on the halfway line.

Spurs battled to the end, but with Oluwayemi saving from Clarkson in the closing stages and it was unfortunate when Charlie Sayers cut out a through pass that it went to Fidel O’Rourke, who found the net with two minutes of normal time remaining.
