Neither attack could break down two stubborn defences as Liverpool and Tottenham played out a goalless draw at Anfield this evening.
The game began in an open manner but the first half soon became stale, with neither side regularly testing either keeper.
Luis Suarez, who was available for selection for the first time since his eight-game ban, was brought on by Kenny Dalglish in the 66th minute in an attempt to clinch the game.
The Uruguayan was booked within five minutes of his introduction for kicking Scott Parker in the midriff.
Louis Saha was also introduced for his Spurs debut as both sides pushed for the three points.
As the game drew to a close, Gareth Bale spurned by far the best chance by failing to put away a one-on-one opportunity before Suarez sent a free header straight at Friedel.
Both sides remain where they started the night, despite picking up a point with Tottenham third and Liverpool seventh in the Premier League table.
