Japhet Tatanga made his debut in the Premier League the best possible way, at least for him, as he produced an incredible save when everybody thought the ball was going to cross the line for Liverpool.

Jose Mourinho handed him his first start in the league and the kid showed his quality as soon as he stepped on the pitch. Prior to the game, Mou had responded that he picked Japhet because he was ‘very fast’, which the player later confirmed.

Roberto Firmino ran towards goal and skipped past Christian Eriksen before getting a shot in. However, his strike was blocked by Tanganga, who didn’t stop there and then got back to his feet to stop the ball from going to Mohamed Salah with another important block.

This display drove everybody crazy and with all the reason. It looks like Tottenham found another gem in this guy.

In the end, Spurs were unable to draw the game after the aforementioned Firmino gave Liverpool the lead in the first half. They lost several chances to tie the encounter, but the Reds left North London victorious, going 16 points clear atop the Premier League standings.
