LIVERPOOL, England (AP):

Harry Kane scored an injury-time penalty after missing from the spot late in normal time to rescue a 2-2 draw for Tottenham against Liverpool in a dramatic Premier League game yesterday.

Mohamed Salah, who opened the scoring for Liverpool in the third minute, looked like he'd clinched victory with a wonderful individual goal in the first minute of injury time.

There was still time for Virgil van Dijk to trip Erik Lamela in the area - a foul only awarded following the intervention of the assistant referee - and Kane converted his second penalty of the game in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Kane had a poor spot kick palmed away by goalkeeper Loris Karius in the 87th minute when the score was 1-1, and looked to the skies after Salah made it 2-1, thinking he'd cost his side.

Victor Wanyama equalised for Tottenham with an unstoppable 30-metre strike in the 80th, moments after coming on as a substitute.

Two points still separate the teams in the race for Champions League qualification, with Liverpool in third and Tottenham in fifth place.
