Home at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday among other Premier League football news, Spurs held Liverpool to a 2-2 draw. Tottenham Hotspur delivered an action-packed game as Jurgen Klopp’s side conceded ground in the race for the Premier League title.

Spurs striker Harry Kane opened the scoring in this home fixture with just his second league goal of the season.

But Liverpool hit back through forward Diogo Jota and defender Andy Robertson and these goals put the Reds 1-2 up.

Finally, Spurs forward Son Heung-Min netted to level the scores again.

Also, just eight minutes after the Liverpool defender slotted in his goal, Robertson received a red card judgement. He kicked through the back of opposing defender Emerson Royal to deserve this call.

Spurs started brightly, and Kane took full advantage of this, slotting home a threaded through ball from midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

Even after this initial lead, Antonio Conte’s side remained dominant as Son had two chances to extend Spurs’ lead.

The first attempt was a lunging shot following a layoff from Kane. And then, in the second one, Son came into a one-on-one battle with goalkeeper Alisson – but he squandered both.

Midfielder Dele Alli also missed a chance shortly after, unable to find the bottom right-hand corner. City defenders failed to mark Alli, who picked the ball up at the penalty spot.

Kane could’ve been sent off soon after, catching Robertson’s boot in a high-speed tackle, but he only saw yellow (card).

Liverpool then finally equalised on 35 minutes through Jota, who headed home a floated cross from Robertson.

Later, when midfielder Alli went down inside the box, referees denied Spurs a penalty claim in the second half.

And Tottenham felt further incensed immediately after, Liverpool raced to the other end of the pitch. Defender Trent Alexander-Arnold fired a cross that Robertson deftly headed in.

But eventually, Son struck back on 74 minutes as he slotted into an empty net after rounding goalkeeper Alisson.

Robertson saw red moments after the restart when he kicked through the back of Emerson. Referee Paul Tierney originally gave him a yellow card, but changed his mind after the Video Assistant Referee instructed him to review the pitchside monitor.
