Tottenham captain Harry Kane found his back in a controversial Spurs draw with Liverpool’s Premier League candidate. The English international looked much tougher against the Reds and deservedly scored for the Spurs.
Not surprisingly, Liverpool fought back and tied the match thanks to a well-timed header by Diogo Jota. Andrew Roberton scored Liverpool’s second goal in the 69th minute, but Son Heung-min made sure the hosts didn’t leave empty-handed.
The 2-2 draw was full of action and drama, and Kane started the sequel with a sharp challenge to Robertson in the 20th minute. The man from Tottenham embarked on a challenge on the Scottish national team, and yet he only got away with a yellow card.
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp was furious with this decision and thought it was a red card. Kane, on the other hand, thought he had won the ball and thought his challenge was just a simple “strong attempt”.
Arsenal fans took the opportunity to shoot the Spurs captain, claiming that Kane benefited from preferential treatment.
After the draw, Liverpool are three points behind the Premier League leader and current champions Manchester City. Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, remain in seventh place, having played just 15 league games this season.
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is comparing Arsenal
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp drew a parallel with Arsenal, emphasizing the bad accident that the Reds suffered this season. The former Borussia Dortmund coach saw his team looting COVID-19.
Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara missed the Spurs game due to a virus, while Jordan Henderson was left without a game due to illness. The provisional XI he played against the Spurs failed to meet the charge and saw Liverpool lag behind in the race for the league title.
Klopp said that he watched Chelsea and Arsenal during the weekend, claiming that they are in better shape than Liverpool. Given the growing number of COVID-19 cases, many clubs have managed to postpone their matches.

Liverpool, however, did not make an official request, which makes Klopp’s comments after the match even more unjustified.
