Linesman ‘celebrates’ giving Tottenham a penalty against Liverpool in dramatic 2-2 draw

Harry Kane earned his side a draw against Liverpool after getting a second opportunity from the spot to score his 100th goal in the Premier League.

The England international saw his penalty saved by Loris Karius in the 85th minute when the score was 1-1 and watched on helplessly as Mohamed Salah looked to have given the home side all three points with an incredible solo effort.

However, Kane was given another chance from the spot in the 95th minute when the referee John Moss took advice from his linesman to give a second penalty for Virgil van Dijk’s challenge on Erik Lamela.

Jurgen Klopp sarcastically clapped the decision and claimed after the match that the linesman wanted to ‘put himself in the middle’ of the game. And eagle-eyed Liverpool supporters caught the official appearing to ‘celebrate’ his decision, with supporters claiming he ‘fist pumped’.

Liverpool’s draw means they’re a point above fourth-placed Chelsea, who can leapfrog the Reds with a win against Watford on Monday night. Spurs remain outside of the top four and host arch-rivals Arsenal at Wembley next Saturday.
