Klopp's reign starts with a point

Jurgen Klopp, the self-proclaimed 'Normal One' left White Hart Lane with what he labelled a 'normal result' as his new Liverpool side drew 0-0 with Tottenham.

Much had been made of the German's arrival in the Barclays Premier League as replacement for Brendan Rodgers but, with main striker Daniel Sturridge not risked due to a minor knee injury, he could not start his much-heralded reign on Anfield with a victory.

Divock Origi, with only 17 minutes of Premier League football to his name, started in place of Sturridge and came closest to winning the game for the visitors - who had goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to thank for keeping a clean sheet.
