As It Happened

Liverpool lost ground in the Premier League title race in a throbbing draw at Tottenham that was loaded with talking points and saw Andrew Robertson given red for the guests.

Manchester City’s 4-0 triumph at Newcastle prior to this game confirmed that Liverpool couldn’t top the EPL at Christmas, an event unseen for four years, with Jurgen Klopp’s side now falling 3 points behind the leaders.

Harry Kane finished his Premier League dry patch when he passed the ball into the cornerfrom Tanguy Ndombele’s pass however Spurs squandered various efforts to increase their lead.

Diogo Jota made the hosts pay on 35 minutes by heading q wonderful cross from Robertson, who had botched a gilt edged opportunity in the opening 70 seconds.

Robertson then, at that point, headed the Reds in front after the interval just for Son Heung-min to pull the hosts level after a mix-up by Alisson four minutes after the Reds’ goal in an open and excited game.

Liverpool left-back Robertson had been great yet was given a VAR inspired red for a wild hack on Emerson Royal, a choice given later Paul Tierney investigated the choice on the pitch-side screen.

The draw broadens Antonio Conte’s unbeaten run at Tottenham to five games, however his side stay seventh with games still to be played on those above them.

On a few days of exhausted Premier League activity, these sides presented an absolutely exhilarating experience loaded with talking points at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Both confronted Covid-related disturbances to their own arrangements and Klopp said ahead of time that both teams managers had no clue about which players would be able to play until the morning of the game.

Nine Spurs players gave positive Covid results during the past fortnight, not including staff and under-23s, which means Conte couldn’t execute his typical careful strategic plans and needed to fall back on life sized models as resistance, however it was Liverpool’s protection looking static as the hosts opened them up in north London.

Ndombele, making his first EPL start under Conte, showed his undoubted quality with a magnificently weighted pass for Kane that the England skipper slid into the distant corner for just his second goal in the EPL this season and first in quite a while.

Conte has referred to Kane as ‘one of the best I’ve had the pleasure to train’ and the 28-year-old nearly set up a second minutes after the first, however Son couldn’t convert his cross into the net.

The South Korean overran another Kane pass to permit Alisson to cover before Kane then, at that point, made a plunge on Robertson and was maybe lucky to just get a yellow card – a choice brought further into center by Robertson’s own red later on.
