Salah's heroics marred by Kane's 100th EPL goal

Salah's heroics marred by Kane's 100th EPL goal landmark

February 4, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Mohamed Salah’s supposed game winner was cancelled out by Harry Kane’s penalty goal deep into added time.

Goals, excitement, and controversy. These three words vividly describe the spectacular Super Sunday encounter between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. 

The in-form Mohamed Salah opened the scoring just three minutes into the first half to take his tally for the season to 20 in 25 matches for the Reds.

The best was certainly saved for last as the ding-dong affair between the two clubs commenced in full swing inside the last 10 minutes of the game. 

A stunning long-range equalizer by Victor Wayama blew the game wide open at the 80th-minute mark. The league’s current top goalscorer, Harry Kane, had the opportunity to put his side ahead from the penalty spot with just three minutes of proceedings left.

However, he was met with dismay as his effort was saved by the Red's shot stopper Loris Karius. All seemed to be pointing to a Liverpool win after Mohamed Salah niftily obliterated four Tottenham players inside their own box to slot his second goal of the game past Hugo Loris.

The Egyptian’s finesse was short-lived after a debatable penalty call by referee Jonathan Moss went in favor of Spurs following an apparent challenge on Erik Lamela by Virgil van Dijk. 

What was a dramatic night of football action was culminated with Harry Kane finally getting his 100th Premier League goal for Tottenham and his 22nd of this season after making no mess of the spot-kick this time around. 

Liverpool now sits ahead of Chelsea in third place with 51 points, with the Blues having a game in hand against Watford on Monday. Tottenham maintains their position at fifth with 49 points.
