Home   /   Tottenham hold Liverpool in thrilling draw

Despite both clubs having COVID issues, the two sides produced a brilliant match with a late equaliser from Son Heung-Min earning Spurs a point in a controversial game.

The referee’s performance was one of the most talked about issues after the game with Andrew Robertson sent off for an aggressive tackle on Emerson Royal late on and Harry Kane avoiding what should have been a straight red for a studs up tackle early in the first half. Liverpool could easily have had a penalty with Royal bringing down Diogo Jota.

Kane opened the scoring for his first home goal of the season in the 13th minute, slotting the ball into the bottom corner after a brilliant pass by Tanguy Ndombele.

Spurs missed a flurry of chances to double their lead; Son hit the post after a quick counter attack and then Son set up Dele one on one with Alisson Becker but the Brazilian produced a brilliant save to tip the ball round the post.

Jota equalised just before half time with a brilliant guided header from Robertson’s perfect delivery.

Liverpool went ahead in the 69th minute when the ball fell to Trent Alexander-Arnold in the box before he volleyed the ball perfectly to Robertson who nodded the ball into an empty net to put the visitors ahead.

Almost straight away Spurs equalised in the 74th minute with Harry Winks playing Son in behind, Alisson rushed off his line to clear the ball but missed it leaving Son with an empty goal to slot in and bring Spurs level.
