But Jurgen Klopp is insisting Daniel Sturridge will play regularly for Liverpool this season.
Liverpool's Sadio Mane competes for the ball with Tottenham's Danny Rose.
Danny Rose's late strike, squeezed between Simon Mignolet and the goalkeeper's near post, drew Spurs level as both sides were forced to settle for a point going into the global break.
He said, per Liverpool's official website: "I still feel a little bit disappointed, [even though] we took a point against Tottenham".
"But, of course, we are all human beings and in the analysis afterwards when we saw it again we could not believe how big the opportunities would have been with one more pass, and that was hard to take", said Klopp.
It was a frustrating outcome for visiting manager Jürgen Klopp on his return to the scene of his first game at the Liverpool helm last October, which ended in a 0-0 draw.
Liverpool were undoubtedly the first team to find their feet in the match, causing a number of chances from the 20th minute onwards.
"We did it really good, but we're really flexible in offensive defending".
"We struggled against teams who packed their defence, didn't really want to play against us and just hit us on the break. I think first half they deserved more but second half we deserved more". They scored a goal and they could have won too. They ultimately leveled the match when Rose successfully concluded a play that began with a nifty cross from Eric Dier.
"He still has to adapt and learn because he's not had 500 games in this position but we will work on it, like we work on every player". A few players do have, a few don't and then you have to judge for the moment.
"We have to accept it".
"Inconsistency was a problem last season but I wouldn't say that about the first three games this season".
James Milner gave Liverpool the lead from the penalty spot before Danny Rose equalised for Spurs.
Spurs came back at them after half-time, prompting Klopp to look for reinforcements.
Tottenham, meanwhile, remain unbeaten following an opening-day draw with Everton and last weekend's win over Crystal Palace.
Liverpool were unlucky to have not gotten all three points against Tottenham.
