Andy Robertson

Liverpool played out an entertaining 2-2 draw away to Tottenham in an English Premier League match played on Sunday evening. 

Harry Kane opened the scores in the 14th minute, but Diogo Jota equalised for Jurgen Klopp’s men before second-half strikes from Andy Robertson and Heung-min Son settled the clash.

Liverpool though were forced to play the last 15 minutes with 10 men, after Robertson was shown a straight red for a hefty challenge.

The match got off to a ferocious start, with the hosts on the front feet as Liverpool chased shadows for the better part of the opening quarter of an hour.

The Reds could have however taken the lead inside the first minute when Trent Alexander-Arnold found Andy Robertson with a nice lofted pass but the final header went inches wide.

Alexander-Arnold then tested Hugo Lloris in goal with a long-range shot in the 12th minute, but the Frenchman was equal to the task, making a clean save.

A minute later it was Spurs who created yet another chance as Emerson created some space before squaring the ball for Kane.

The Englishman had some space, turned, and shot from six yards out, but Konate made a wonderful block.

Spurs could not be denied in the 14th minute as Tanguy Ndombele played a glorious through ball with the Liverpool defense back-tracking, and Kane easily beat Alisson to give Spurs the lead.

They almost made it 2-0 in the 17th minute but Son Heung-min could not direct the ball home as it went wide.

Kane was lucky not to be sent off in the 22nd minute after going in rough on Robertson, with Jurgen Klopp fuming on the sidelines.

Dele Alli then missed a sitter on the half-hour mark, Alisson tipping his effort round the post.

Spurs were meant to pay for their missed chances as Liverpool equalised in the 35th minute when Robertson found Jota, who directed a sublime header back into the near post past a rooted Lloris.

The second half was a replica of the first, with both sides exchanging blow after blow.

Spurs spurned two chances early on, with Kane the culprit; first forcing a good save from Lloris before another chance flew inches over the bar.

Spurs had a penalty claim waved away before Liverpool doubled their lead in the 69th minute.

Jota delivered from the left, Salah looked to get at the far post, and he headed it down into the ground as Lloris saved only for Robertson to head home for a 2-1 lead.

Alisson then made a huge mistake and Heung-Min Son had an easy task to put the ball into the back of the net for a 2-2 scoreline.

Liverpool were then reduced to 10 men when Robertson was shown a straight red card for a serious foul.

None of the teams could find the winner, as both settled for a 2-2 draw.
