How do you describe those final few minutes of Liverpool vs Tottenham?
Carnage. Absolute carnage.
After Victor Wanyama equalised with a screamer, it looked as though Spurs had won it when they were awarded a penalty with just minutes remaining.
However, the award of the spot-kick was controversial.
At first, Kane appeared offside. However, due to Dejan Lovren getting a big touch on the ball, the striker was adjudged to be offside.
Then, there was a question whether the forward had dived over Loris Karius.
Despite Jon Moss initially giving the penalty, he went over to the assistant referee to ask whether it was offside.
The two officials had a deep conversation about whether or not the award of the penalty should stand and the TV cameras picked up exactly what was said. The assistant can be heard saying: “If Lovren didn’t touch the ball, he’s offside.”
Emre Can tried his very best to convince the officials that Lovren didn’t touch it – but they eventually came to the correct call.
It’s actually really interesting to see how they came to the final decision.

So Moss ‘gave the penalty’ because he had ‘no idea’ at all this is shambolic ffs. pic.twitter.com/p0WbJu9mox

But the drama was far from over.
Kane missed his penalty and, just minutes later, Mohamed Sarah looked as though he had won the match with an incredible solo goal.
But there was still time for another Spurs penalty as Virgil van Dijk brought down Erik Lamela.
Moss waved away the claims but the same assistant referee gave the penalty. This time, Kane made no mistake and earned a point for the away side.
At the end of the day, a draw was probably a fair result as Liverpool dominated the first-half and Spurs were definitely the better side after the break.
The draw keeps Liverpool in third place, with Spurs in fifth, two points behind them.
