Boss Jurgen Klopp was satisfied after his first match in charge of Liverpool.
The Reds fought extremely hard against a well-organised Tottenham Hotspur side at White Hart Lane.
They keep their 10th position in the table ahead of next week's home game against Southampton, Klopp's first at Anfield.
"I'm satisfied with the start and it was not the worst sign," Klopp said after the 0-0 draw.
"I knew we only had three days and Tottenham are very strong, a well-tuned team, so I knew it could be difficult. But I'm really satisfied because the start was brilliant and we surprised them a little bit – we wanted to go on the second ball.
"Divock, Phil [Coutinho] and Adam [Lallana] worked perfectly in the three, good positions for them. They did well. The problem was that when we had the ball, we were not cool enough and we didn't use our skills. We were a little bit too hectic. We didn't see the right option, but it's normal.
"We had our moments. From a very good corner we hit the post and there were some other situations where we could have been a little bit better, but for today it's okay.
"Now we have our own game, our own experience, together and now we can go on working."
