Controversy ruled Anfield as Harry Kane scored a penalty deep into stoppage time to snatch a point for Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. The Reds had only seconds to survive when referee Jon Moss pointed to the spot after Virgil van Dijk seemed to kick Erik Lamela in an attempt to clear to ball from danger.
Kane, who had missed the earlier penalty, kept his calm this time around and slotted it home for his 100th league goal, to leave Anfield stunned.
Mohammed Salah earlier gave Liverpool the lead inside three minutes when he pounced on an erratic Eric Dier back pass to slice a left-footed shot past Hugo Lloris.
Tottenham enjoyed plenty of possession in the first-half but lacked the guile to cut open our defence. Liverpool looked threatening whenever they went forward but failed to double the lead before the break.
Spurs started brightly in the second-half, won the second balls with more aggression and looked a tad too vigilant when compared to the first-half. Son Heung-Min called Loris Karius into action in the 57th minute before Dele Alli fired just wide from the rebound. The pressure was mounting for Liverpool as we preferred to sit back and defend rather than double our tally.
The pressure finally paid off for Spurs, who equalised through substitute Victor Wanyama’s thunderbolt from 25 yards out, in the 80th minute. In what turned out to be a gripping finale, Karius saved Kane’s penalty after he brought down the striker.
Salah went down the other end and scored, what he thought was a dramatic stoppage-time winner of his own. But a minute later, Kane stunned the Kop by scoring from the spot for his landmark 100th league goal.
After Salah netted the goal in extra-time, it looked like the game was won but controversial referring saw us drop points at home.
Here is how our frustrated fanbase reacted to an otherwise scintillating draw at Merseyside.
