              Liverpool v Tottenham Greatest goals

"I've never seen Harry Kane as redundant as he was in that first half".

The England global playmaker was booked, and gestured as if to admit he deserved a caution.

Spurs then thought they had the chance to win the game was Kane was brought down by Karius and Moss pointed to the spot. Kane stepped up and saw his penalty saved by Karius, though, with the German standing firm in the middle of his goal to deny the forward.

James Milner has bemoaned a "disappointing" end to their Premier League meeting with Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield as the visitors struck late to seize a 2-2 draw.

"Harry Kane is still there, even though the whole world is going nuts transfer wise".

"Both were a penalty and nothing to say, it is not controversial - it is nothing", he said.


Kenedy swung a low delivery into the penalty area that Milivojevic missed and when Martin Kelly failed to track Diame's run, the Senegal midfielder was free to finish from close range. That goal ended up being overshadowed by what happened in the dramatic final minutes that left Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp furious. Offside wasn't awarded because Dejan Lovren got a touch to the ball, meaning a new phase of play had started.

Liverpool remain in third place, while Tottenham stay two points behind Klopp's side in fifth.

In the opening minutes of the game, Salah conquered an error pass from Eric Dier, as he sliced between the center-backs, grabbed the ball and tapped it in the bottom right corner to give the lead for the Reds.

In doing so, the Egypt worldwide became the quickest Liverpool player to reach 20 Premier League goal - in 25 games, two faster than Fernando Torres. Sadio Mane pressed Eric Dier into making a terrible pass and Salah took advantage to race through on goal and calmly beat Hugo Lloris for another landmark goal in a special season.

The introduction of Wanyama paid immediate dividends as less then two minutes after arriving he smashed home a stunning shot from 25 yards after Karius had punched clear Eriksen's cross.

And yet the cheers stuck in the throats as referee Jon Moss - who entered lengthy consultation with his assistant before finally awarding the first Spurs penalty - waited as Van Dijk tangled with substitute Lamela, looking towards his colleague once more before pointing to the spot. The first penalty was pretty soft as Harry Kane went down with nearly a feather touch off Karius, but the play before that was what got on the fans' nerves.
