Kops, Spurs' held in Europa League
Coach Brendan Rodgers left Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard on the bench after which Jonjo Shelvey and the recalled Joe Cole scored to sandwich a riposte from Raul Bobadilla. With just two minutes remaining Elsad Zverotic had the visiting fans on their feet as he thrashed a fine strike past Pepe Reina. Liverpool may now need to win their final game at Udinese.
Tottenham also managed only a 0-0 draw at Lazio — who qualify — meaning they also have to gain a point in their final game at home to Panathinaikos.
