Liverpool slipped to a 0-0 draw against Manchester United on Monday – and the Tottenham fans were thrilled with the result on Twitter.

The Merseyside club failed to find a way past goalkeeper David De Gea and failed to replicate the attacking form they have shown in the early stages of the season.

The result leaves Liverpool fourth in the Premier League table and two points adrift of league leaders Manchester City.

Spurs are currently third in the league and just a point behind Man City and second-placed Arsenal.

Liverpool have been labelled as serious title contenders after a strong start to the campaign but were unstuck against a typical Jose Mourinho side, who were solid in defence for the 90 minutes.

Spurs supporters were pleased with the goalless draw and feel their side are in a good position to challenge for the title.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Spurs are one of the teams who have put down a marker at the beginning of the campaign and are the only unbeaten side in the Premier League.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful to avenge their painful failure last year, after losing out to eventual champions Leicester in a title race.

The north London club also have the best defensive record in the division, conceding just four goals from their opening eight league games.

Spurs and Liverpool played a 1-1 draw in August in their league meeting and the pair meet against later this month in the EFL Cup fourth-round.
