Tottenham 2 Liverpool 2: Reds' title bid dented in game of the season contender as Kane finally scores but misses hatful
WELL we’re certainly going to miss the spectacle of packed-house football if this afternoon of high-octane lunacy is anything to go by.
If you want a brief synopsis, then here goes.
Harry Kane scored, then escaped a stonewall red-card, then missed a hat-trick of chances either side of a Diogo Jota equaliser.
Then Andy Robertson – the victim of Kane’s horror tackle – put Liverpool in front, as Spurs appealed for a penalty at the other end, but soon got sent off for wild challenge on Emerson Royal, after Son Heung-Min had levelled after a shocking blunder by Allison.
As the Covid clouds loom over football and life in general, here was 90-odd minutes of glorious, chaotic escapism.
It was a match which had everything except a winner – high quality, low farce, raging controversy and sporadic outbreaks of wanton violence.
What a game of football.
Liverpool’s eight-match winning streak was halted as much by the match officials as by Antonio Conte’s pumped-up Tottenham – and Jurgen Klopp was rightfully fuming as Manchester City extended their lead to three points.
