Harry Kane's spot kick redemption earns Spurs a stunning point

Wanyama, who came on in the place of Mousa Dembele in the 79, needed only a minute on the pitch to restore parity with his 30 yards thunderbolt after Egyptian global Mohamed Salah had given hosts the lead barely three minutes into the match, capitalizing a blunder by Eric Dier. The German number one did well in the first half with a couple of solid saves.

Mohamed Salah netted late on to put Liverpool FC 2-1 up after Harry Kane had missed a penalty.

When these two sides met at Wembley earlier this season, Tottenham ran riot against Liverpool as they ended up 4-1 winners. Sadio Mane pressed Eric Dier into making a terrible pass and Salah took advantage to race through on goal and calmly beat Hugo Lloris for another landmark goal in a special season.

In the 18th minute, James Milner nearly doubled Liverpool's lead as his deflected half volley sailed past the upright for a corner.

"I'm a little frustrated", Palace manager Roy Hodgson said, after his side had the bulk of the chances in the second half.

The roles were reversed in the second half as the north Londoners made all the running.

Only in the second half did Tottenham finally start to look risky, with Dele Alli slipping a ball through and Son Heung-min seeing a shot smothered by Karius.

On Friday morning, anxious parents accompanied their children to the school as classes resumed. "She was like, 'I didn't mean to". Maria Serrano reluctantly dropped off her 12-year-old daughter at school. "I didn't think something like this would happen here".

Wanyama's thunderous strike - a piledriver that flew into the top left corner - left Pochettino purring.

However, Spurs suddenly looked to have the three points in the bag as referee John Moss awarded Harry Kane a penalty in the 87th minute after the forward appeared to have dived in the box.

"If Dejan Lovren doesn't touch the ball, he (Kane) is offside but it's clear that he touched the ball, so he's onside".

Kane's incredible penalty gave Tottenham a vital point after Salah scored twice.

After a long discussion with his assistant, Moss stood by his decision but Karius redeemed himself by saving the spot-kick Kane hit straight down the middle.

With the thrilling game poised at 1-1, the England ace missed an 87-minute pen that would have nearly certainly given Spurs the win.

It wasn't over yet. His argument, which he repeated vociferously and unchallenged by anyone else on the broadcast, was that because Van Dijk was not aware that Lamela was coming for the ball that the challenge should not have been ruled a foul, much less a penalty. He was then brought down by Loris Karius, who immediately made up for his mistake by denying Kane from the spot.
