Salah goal Messi-like, says Carragher

The match was halted a first time while linesman Eddie Smart discussed if Harry Kane was onside before being brought down by Loris Karius, and judged that Dejan Lovren's touch on the ball meant he was.

It was the fifth minute of injury time, Liverpool was leading 2-1 in an action-packed game at Anfield, and home fans were seething after Tottenham was awarded a penalty in front of The Kop - courtesy of an intervention by the assistant referee. But Spurs came back strongly in the second half and the match had as dramatic an ending as any we have seen in the recent past.

"I am focused on trying to prepare for the game and go there and try to win".

"For the second goal he scored, there's only Messi in world football who can score that, and to say that about any player, sometimes you have to be careful it doesn't get thrown back at you but what else can you say when he produces a goal like that?"

Harambee Stars Captain Victor Wanyama stepped off the bench to score barely two minutes on the pitch as Liverpool and Tottenham played to a 2-2 draw in Wembley.

Both are under lucrative long-term contracts, both the poster boys for their team and, in Kane's case, one is expected to lead his club into a new stadium next season.

That took him to 100 Premier League goals in just 141 games.

Tottenham have finished above Liverpool FC in the last two Premier League campaigns in second and third spot. Then Spurs won a penalty, which Harry Kane surprisingly missed. You need to be sure or leave it, but he obviously wanted to be in the middle of interest.

Kane has scored 30 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions so far this season, including three hat-tricks. We are not similar but, in the last two seasons, we finished third and second and they were below us.

"I thought it was a dive that is my opinion and the referee thought it was no offside and no dive and he gave a pen".

"I am so happy because he helps the team to achieve one point". We have the best nutrition department and no one came to me and said it was a problem.

And yet the cheers stuck in the throats as referee Jon Moss - who entered lengthy consultation with his assistant before finally awarding the first Spurs penalty - waited as Van Dijk tangled with substitute Lamela, looking towards his colleague once more before pointing to the spot. "Sometimes you complain but, when they are right and show character, I think it is important to recognise and congratulate them, because they have a hard job". I think the most annoying feeling at the moment is we should have won and kept the 1-0.
