Kane penalty cancels out Salah stunner

The Kop exploded in fury but Kane stayed calm and made no mistake the second time, beating Karius comfortably.

Moss initially ignored Spurs' claims for a late penalty when Erik Lamela went down from Virgil van Dijk's challenge inside the 18-yard box, until his assistant, Eddie Smart, raised his flag to indicate a foul had been committed.

"To score 100 Premier League goals, it is because you have big, big balls". 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.

Pochettino though does not want to think too much about Tottenham's form at Anfield and would rather remember happier times, such as his trip to the ground as as Southampton manager, winning 1-0 via a goal from Dejan Lovren.

Gallagher said: "The first penalty is very interesting".

"It (Salah's) was a fantastic goal and to get a penalty (given against) in the last second of the game was not good". That goal ended up being overshadowed by what happened in the dramatic final minutes that left Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp furious.

Referee Jon Moss ruled Tottenham's England global had been brought down after the slightest of touches from goalkeeper Loris Karius after being controversially allowed to play on despite being in an offside position.

He completed 47 of 87 passes for 439 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions, producing a 77.7 passer rating and a 27.8 QBR. The matchups, whether they are individual, position groups, units or coaching , should get plenty of attention.

"Is that the rule?"

Mo' Salah took the lead for Liverpool in the third minute of the game as Klopp's men looked all set for further embellishment of the Anfield fortress. You need to be sure or leave it but he obviously wanted to be the middle of interest, now he is, I can not change that.

Liverpool, in third, now hold a two-point lead over fifth-placed Spurs and are looking to avenge their 4-1 defeat at Wembley back in October.

In attempting to dispossess Sadio Mane, Eric Dier only succeeded in meekly prodding the ball toward his own goal and Salah pounced, sprinting clear of Davinson Sanchez and burying a low, angled shot into the corner.

Klopp admitted that he has "no clue in the moment" whether he will "rotate a lot or not" against Spurs, one of three teams to beat them in the league this term with a heavy 4-1 thrashing back in September. If the ref kept playing at that level then fine, but in the first half he wasn't giving fouls. Neither player will start at Anfield, though, especially considering Kieran Trippier's exquisite performance against United on Wednesday. Dele Alli released Son Heung-Min on the left in the 59th minute and the South Korean tried to slot the ball underneath Karius, who came up with the save at close range.

At the top of the table, however, all remains serene for Manchester City, who hold a 15-point lead and on Saturday visit a Burnley side who have not won in their last eight league matches. On the second day of recovery he looks fresh again.

Liverpool's supporters were waiting to celebrate a vital victory after Salah's twisting, turning run into the area in stoppage time ended with a clever finish over the onrushing Lloris.
