  • Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian midfielder Erik Lamela goes down from a tackle by Liverpool's Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk, leading to the second penalty and goal by Tottenham

Moss knew a Liverpool player had touched the ball but not that it was Lovren.

Kane completed a century of Premier League goals with a late penalty in his side's 2-2 draw at Anfield against Liverpool. "He (the official) wanted to be middle of interest and he is".

For Kane, though, Sunday night ended in disappointment. "Maybe he meant to play the ball and not catch me; I'd need to see it again on TV".

The linesman should accept the referee's call unless he is rock-solid. The exciting match with massive top four implications had numerous plot twists and turns, and plenty of questionable calls. Brady, for example, was only the 199th pick in his year's draft.

"I think the first penalty was offside and I think it is a dive", Van Dijk said. In his early days, he was neither especially quick nor especially strong, neither especially good in the air nor especially gifted on the ball.

Harry Kane - 7.5: By no means his finest performance but he kept his cool second time round from the spot.

Extending on this, Rooney warned that if Spurs fail to start winning trophies in the near future, Kane will want to leave the North London club to play elsewhere. And yet, it didn't immediately work out for him.

A la pause, Der Zakarian - expulsé en fin de rencontre - manifestait toujours sa colère en regagnant les vestiaires. Ce sont eux qui ont animé la majorité de la partie, mais la réussite était du côté de Lyon .

But Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark conceded a 55th-minute penalty when he bundled over Christian Benteke after the striker leaped to reach Wilfried Zaha's cross.Serbian midfielder Milivojevic sent his spot-kick towards the bottom corner and although Karl Darlow got a hand to the ball, he was unable to prevent it reaching the back of the net.Newcastle's Jonjo Shelvey was fortunate not to concede another penalty for a blatant tug on James McArthur's shirt as the Magpies held on.

Information from Press Association Sport was used in this report. He worked with religious devotion on his leg and core strength.

It just seemed to be 'one of those days'. You can't say that about all the players. The following season, the bias had been almost entirely eradicated. Lamela is already on the way down.

"Before every match, I always visualise scenarios in my head of exactly how I'll score in the match".

Heung-min Son - 7: Tottenham's main threat in attack, asked questions of the hosts' back-line and did not stop running all game.

PGMOL has insisted that there was no wrongdoing in making the decision, affirming it to be the correct one. If that seems a touch harsh, then it is backed up by numbers. Erik Lamela went down minutes after a Van Dijk foul. That takes him to 240 without breaking a sweat.

"In real time this was a difficult series of decisions which the match officials judged correctly in recognising that Kane was not offside, as Lovren had deliberately played the ball, and he was fouled for the award of the penalty kick". It's not nice when you're a player and your manager gets sacked.
