Virgil Van Dijk And Dejan Lovren Tasked With Stopping Harry Kane

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp meanwhile made it clear the officials were to blame for them dropping points - and it was a big blow in their race for the top four.

After Kane's missed effort Liverpool thought they had snatched victory when Mohamed Salah scored an individually brilliant goal - his second of the game - with the clock well past 90 minutes only for Spurs' England global to take his second chance.

Harry Kane missed the first but converted the second with virtually the last kick of the game to secure a 2-2 draw for Tottenham at Anfield.

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) - Harry Kane scored an injury-time penalty after missing from the spot late in normal time to rescue a 2-2 draw for Tottenham against Liverpool in a chaotic Premier League game on Sunday.

However, Spurs were awarded a second penalty by the linesman after Van Dijk fouled Erik Lamela. Klopp confronted Moss on the pitch at full-time and still hadn't calmed down when he spoke to the media.

"I think the first half we were better too, but we conceded after three minutes".

A situation in the last minute like that? Wow. But he [the assistant referee] obviously wanted to be in the middle of interest and now he is.

Syria rebels 'shoot down Russian plane' in north-west Idlib province
The UN said more than 270,000 people had been displaced in Idlib since mid-December as a result of the government's offensive. No group immediately claimed responsibility, and Russian Federation has not confirmed that one of its planes was shot down.

The winger danced inside a series of half-hearted challenges to clip a brilliant finish past Lloris, a goal that deserved to win the game, although it was not to be.

There was much more late drama to come, however, as Spurs were awarded a controversial penalty five minutes from time after the intervention of the assistant referee. I thought it was a dive. The two penalties stand out as the main talking point from the game.

He added: "It was a fantastic goal - it was the plan, no!"

"Disappointing, being in the lead and then what happened with the penalty save and Mo thinking it's a match-winning moment, to have it snatched away is disappointing", Milner told BBC Sport after the game.

"We then changed everything because obviously they had more confidence and they were pushing, we knew that they have very good players up front". But in the end I think to fulfil our dreams at some point we have to overtake all of them.

"Sometimes you complain about them, me no because I decided a long time ago to stop complaining about referees".

The Magpies are only one point above the relegation zone in 16th place after failing to win for a fourth consecutive league match.
