Harry Kane says Arsenal rejection 'best thing that ever happened'

06 February 2018

And ultimately the whole thing doesn't matter, because Kane missed the penalty, so whatever.

Tottenham's only shot on target in the first 45 minutes came via the boot of Mousa Dembele, but his half-volley was easily saved by goalkeeper Loris Karius as Liverpool dominated the proceedings.

Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp was left fuming at referee Jon Moss after Harry Kane's 100th Premier League goal from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time snatched a controversial point for Tottenham Hotspur from a dramatic finale in a 2-2 draw at Liverpool on Sunday night. "We're genuine mates, and I think that's rare in football nowadays". In the second decision Lamela was accused of diving after a collision with Virgil van Dijk.

Discussing Klopp's substitutions at the end, Nevin continued: "I think it's who you can bring on". "Dive" is the third most popular auto-complete when you search Erik Lamela today.

"It is always easier to pledge loyalty when there is no tricky decision to be made".

Arsene Wenger defends spending a club-record £56million on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Aubameyang scored his first Arsenal goal but it was nearly forgotten as two other players received the plaudits. Gabon striker Aubameyang has been sick after his inception with the London club on the deadline transfer day.

"If they think it is right that is good then that is the way forward".

Real Madrid are regularly linked with Kane, and can offer that pathway to trophies, but Kane's love for Tottenham has seen him stay in recent years, and Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that continues.

Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk said he is unfazed by his critics, with the world's most expensive defender confident he can handle the pressure associated with his £75million price-tag.

"For the second penalty, I see him coming and I try and hold my leg in, he just pulled his body in front of the ball and he goes down", he added.

"The ref said play on and I was very disappointed that the linesman said otherwise".

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: 'Adam Lallana likely to miss Spurs clash'
He played then [was] not fit... and I don't know him well enough to say: 'yes you can play [every] three days in this period. While Carragher feels it'll be a great signing, he reckons the Dutch worldwide needs to lose some timber.

"It was a header - probably the best header I've ever scored - and that feeling when it hit the back of the net, I've never felt a rush like that in my whole career".

Former Newcastle striker and manager Alan Shearer also questioned the penalty decision on Twitter.

Although most fans would be wise enough to consider the Dutch worldwide to be a very good defender, conceding 9 goals in 5 games is rather embarrassing, especially considering his title of world's most expensive defender.

While he has already made a difference in the four matches he has played, Van Dijk is still far from his best having missed a large part of 2017 through injury - but accepts his price tag and reputation make him a target.
