Tottenham draw at Liverpool: One point gained or two points lost?

Tottenham Hotspur played out a dramatic 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, with a last-gasp glut of goals resulting in the spoils being shared.

Spurs fought back from a goal down to equalise through a Victor Wanyama thunderbolt, before Harry Kane missed a penalty at 1-1.

Liverpool looked to have won it when Mo Salah netted in injury time, only for Kane to convert a second Tottenham spot kick at the death.

But, looking back, is this a point gained or two points dropped?

The most-important thing for Tottenham was not to lose the game, which would have created a five-point gap between Mauricio Pochettino’s men and the top four.

Given that Spurs were also trailing after 91 minutes, to snatch a point was a massive relief for the travelling support.

The result keeps Tottenham in the top-four hunt and continues the momentum created by beating Manchester United in midweek.

However, it is hard not to think about what could have been, especially after an excellent second-half performance.

Tottenham dominated affairs after the break and were good value for their equaliser, while had Kane netted the first penalty, Spurs would have had a glorious opportunity to leave Anfield with all three points.

That said, the nature of the fight back from a goal down and the fortitude to go out and try to win the game must be seen as real positives.

Looking forward, Pochettino will urge his Tottenham side to start next weekend’s North London Derby in the same fashion that Spurs ended the clash with Liverpool.
