Kane scores late penalty, Spurs snatch 2-2 draw at Liverpool

February 04, 2018 - 1:39 pm

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 dramatic Premier League game on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah, who opened the scoring for Liverpool in the third minute, looked like he'd clinched victory with a wonderful individual goal in the first minute of injury time.

There was still time for Virgil van Dijk to trip Erik Lamela in the area — a foul only awarded following the intervention of the assistant referee — and Kane converted his second penalty of the game in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Kane had a poor spot kick palmed away by goalkeeper Loris Karius in the 87th minute when the score was 1-1 and looked to the skies after Salah made it 2-1, thinking he'd cost his side.

Victor Wanyama equalized for Tottenham with an unstoppable 30-meter strike in the 80th, moments after coming on as a substitute.

Two points still separate the teams in the race for Champions League qualification, with Liverpool in third and Tottenham in fifth place.
