Harry Kane scored an injury-time penalty after missing an earlier one for Tottenham to salvage a 2-2 draw in an extraordinary clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Super Sunday.
With just three minutes gone, Liverpool’s high press forced Eric Dier into a horrendous back-pass which was seized upon by Salah, who was presented with an easy finish past Hugo Lloris from 10 yards out.
Tottenham looked rocked by the early goal as Liverpool continued to play with energy through Jordan Henderson and James Milner in midfield – however, the second goal evaded them with Milner and Roberto Firmino skewing shots wide after some creative play by Trent Alexander-Arnold.
After the break Spurs started to find their rhythm and ask questions of Liverpool defensively. Liverppol started dropping deeper from the hour-mark hence making Klopp switch to a back five for the final 10 minutes in order to see the game out.
His defensive tactic didn’t reap the required effect as Spurs levelled in spectacular fashion. Eriksen’s cross from the left was palmed clear by Karius into the path of Wanyama, who struck a quite breath-taking half-volley into the top corner.
The drama wasn’t done there as Spurs won a penalty in the 85th minute as Kane nipped through and went down under minimal contact from Karius.
The England international looked set to net his 100th Premier League goal but his penalty was straight down the middle and Karius blocked it away.
Liverpool then came alive and pressed forward and Salah somehow twisted and turned in the box, beating two Spurs defenders, and poked a fine finish into the net.
With Anfield rocking, the home fans’ joy quickly turned to anger when Lamela was felled by Van Dijk inside the area. The referee originally waved away the appeals but the linesman flagged and Moss brought the play back to award the penalty.
This time Kane stayed cool and quite a bonkers match ended all square
