Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
DRAMA! After all that - the game ends all square. Liverpool looked dead and buried when Harry Kane stepped up for his first penalty after being on the back foot for the majority of the second half, but he was denied by Loris Karius. The save breathed life into the Reds, who thought they had snatched then win when Mohamed Salah notched his second of the game with a brilliant mazy run and finish. However, the assistant referee correctly spotted a foul on Erik Lamela from Virgil Van Dijk to hand Kane redemption and he did not disappoint again from 12 yards. He notched his 100th Premier League goal in the process of securing a valuable point for Spurs. Salah had given Liverpool an early lead, but they were gradually forced back in the second period. Victor Wanyama scored a stunner to get Tottenham level before the final five minutes of chaos. Both teams will feel that they should have won the contest - therefore a point apiece is probably fair.
90' + 6' The referee ends the contest. Boos echo around Anfield - directed at the officials.
E. Can
Yellow Card
90' + 6' Can goes into the book for dissent.
H. Kane
Penalty Goal
90' + 5' GOALLLLLLLLL!!!! THIS TIME KANE CONVERTS! The striker comes forward with weight of the world on his shoulders. Kane fires low towards the bottom corner and it finds the net. He has his 100th Premier League goal.
90' + 4' PENALTY TO TOTTENHAM!!! DRAMA! The assistant does brilliantly to spot the infraction as Van Dijk swings at the ball and misses. He connects with Lamela - and the spot-kick given.
Son Heung-Min
90' + 2' Llorente replaces Son.
Mohamed Salah
90' + 1' GOALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! BRILLIANT FROM SALAH!!!!!! LIVERPOOL REGAIN THE LEAD! The Reds may have snatched the three points at the death thanks to the Egyptian. He weaves through the Tottenham defence down the right inside channel, beating three challenges. Salah holds his composure and buries his effort into the roof of the net. The winger sends Anfield into raptures.
90' There will be four minutes of added time.
89' Tottenham flood men into the final third and Son combines with Eriksen, but Robertson does well to block his cross. The Scot gets the deflection back on to the Tottenham midfielder to win a goal-kick.
L. Karius
Penalty Save
87' Karius stays home in the middle of his goal to make the stop. A crucial moment in the game.
H. Kane
Penalty Miss
87' MISS! KANE STRIKES THE BALL STRAIGHT AT KARIUS! The forward misses the opportunity to put the visitors ahead. He sends his effort straight down the middle and the Liverpool keeper makes the stop.
85' PENALTY TO TOTTENHAM! Kane is tripped by Karius and the referee points to the spot. The linesman suggests that the forward could be offside, but the referee sticks with his decision.
84' OFFSIDE! Alexander-Arnold lifts the ball forward and Salah tries to break free, but the offside flag is raised against the forward.
82' Lamela sticks out a boot to divert Trippier's pass into the box. It almost travels to Eriksen, but Lovren makes the interception to clear the danger.
V. Wanyama
80' WHAT A GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WANYAMA SCORES A SCREAMER TO NOTCH THE EQUALISER! Spurs get a deserved leveller and it comes from the substitute. Eriksen's cross was punched away by Karius, but Wanyama made strides to latch on to the loose ball. He blasted a right-footed effort towards the net and it soared into the top corner. The strike had so much power it hit the back of the net and rebounded out. A special goal from the midfielder.
80' Davies drifts down the left once again and he wins a corner for the visitors. However, the resulting cross is cleared with ease by Liverpool.
V. Wanyama
M. Dembélé
79' Wanyama comes on for Dembele.
J. Matip
J. Milner
78' Matip replaces Milner for the home side.
77' There's space for Liverpool on the break, but Salah and Firmino are unable to capitalise as Spurs get men back behind the ball.
76' OVER! Kane rises highest in the box to guide a header at goal from Davies' delivery from the corner, but his effort was always going over.
75' Tottenham break down the left and Davies sends a dangerous low cross into the box. Lovren has to make the clearance at the near post and he does to steer it behind for a corner.
73' The linesman waits for Firmino to make an attempt for the ball before raising the offside flag. It results in the forward being clattered by Lloris. Needless wait for the decision from the official.
E. Lamela
D. Sánchez
71' Sanchez makes way for Lamela. Dier will drop back into defence.
70' Davies has space down the left and he lifts a cross into the box. Lovren rises to make a vital header to take the ball away from Alli behind him.
D. Alli
Yellow Card
69' Alli goes into the book for simulation. He was looking for Lovren's outstretched leg, but the challenge did not come. He flung himself the ground anyway and was carded by referee Moss.
68' Spurs are probing the Liverpool defence for weaknesses, but the Reds are holding firm for now.
67' Alli latches on to a loose ball on the edge of the box. He tries to thread a pass through to Kane, but Van Dijk makes the interception.
A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
S. Mané
65' Mane is withdrawn for Oxlade-Chamberlain.
G. Wijnaldum
J. Henderson
65' Wijnaldum replaces Henderson for the home side.
63' OFFSIDE! Kane is getting over eager in the final third as he is called offside once again moving too soon to latch on to Eriksen's delivery from a free-kick.
62' Eriksen sends a poor corner into the box and Sanchez almost allows Liverpool to break playing a pass straight to Mane. He releases Salah down the right flank, but the winger runs out of room.
61' Son twists and turns down the left flank and sends a threatening cross to the back post. Van Dijk takes control of the situation to head behind for a corner.
59' OFFSIDE! Eriksen whips the ball into the box and Kane meets it with a header on the stoop, but Karius makes the save. The forward was offside anyway.
J. Milner
Yellow Card
58' Milner slides in hard on Trippier and hands a free-kick to Spurs on the right flank.
57' SAVE & WIDE! Son breaks in behind the Liverpool defence and he surges into the box. He shapes to shoot, but Karius is sharp off his line to make the block. Alli latches on to the rebound on the edge of the box and he tries to catch Karius off his line. However, the midfielder blasts his volley wide of the post.
56' Tottenham have settled into the second half and are moving the ball well in the Liverpool half. Will the chances come for the visitors?
54' Salah has acres of space to raid into in a one-on-one situation with Vertonghen. The defender does well to hold him, while the offload from the Egyptian goes astray when looking for Firmino's run.
52' Davies marauds into space down the left to collect Alli's pass. He cuts the ball back for Eriksen, who spins and clips the ball into the middle, but there's no-one there at the back post for the visitors.
51' Lloris plays Dier into trouble on the edge of his own box under pressure from Salah. The midfielder does just enough to get a foot on the ball to poke it away from danger, while his team-mates regroup at the back.
50' Liverpool win a free-kick in the final third, but the quality of delivery is not quite there as Davies clears, while Robertson sends the follow-up into the arms of Lloris.
47' Tottenham break down the left and Davies sends a low cross towards the near post, but Alli fails to make the run to connect.
46' Firmino releases Salah down the right flank and he offloads back to Alexander-Arnold. However, for the first time in the game, the full-back sends a disappointing delivery into the area as the ball goes out for a goal-kick.
46' We're back underway at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah's early strike is the difference between Liverpool and Tottenham at the break in their Premier League clash. Spurs had a nervy start and Eric Dier's attempted backpass fell perfectly for Salah to run on to and slot past Hugo Lloris. The visitors' nerves continued, but the Reds could not expose them further in the opening 45 minutes. Harry Kane has been a spectator for the majority of the first period and Spurs need to figure out a way to get him involved in the second half.
45' + 1' The referee ends the first half.
45' + 1' Eriksen loses out to Milner and Mane takes over to combine with Salah in the final third. However, a poor layoff from Salah costs Liverpool a chance to threaten at the end of the half as he overhits his throughball.
45' There will be one minute of added time.
44' Mane is caught by Dembele and goes down. The Senegalese looks to the referee to book the Tottenham midfielder, but it's only a free-kick.
43' Eriksen whips the resulting free-kick into the box, but he overhits his delivery ahead of Dier and Karius makes the claim.
T. Alexander-Arnold
Yellow Card
42' Alexander-Arnold goes into the book for high challenge on Davies. He wasn't in control, but a touch of the ball may have saved him.
40' SAVE! Spurs win a free-kick and Eriksen's delivery from deep is hooked clear by Henderson. Dembele seizes on the loose ball and controls it before firing at goal on the half-volley. Karius watches the strike and gets down to make a comfortable save.
39' Lovren is played into acres of space down the right by Milner and he fires a first-time cross into the box. However, Vertonghen is there once again to make the vital interception.
37' Alexander-Arnold speeds down the right flank and he whips a low cross towards the near post. Vertonghen reads the danger and is able to clear away from the penalty area.
35' OFFSIDE! Kane releases Son with a pinpoint pass and he surges forward towards the edge of the box. Alli and Eriksen arrive in support, but the flag was up long before against Son. Replays show that it was the incorrect decision.
34' SAVE! Milner whips a cross into the box from the left flank and Van Dijk rises to head at goal. He directs his header downwards towards the bottom corner, but Lloris gets down to make the save.
32' Salah wins a free-kick as he gets clipped by Vertonghen. However, Van Dijk can only send his header from Salah's delivery out for a goal-kick.
31' Davies is bundled off the ball by Can in the Liverpool half. The visitors take the free-kick quickly and Trippier tries to send a cross into the box, but Henderson makes the clearance before Dembele loses possession.
29' Tottenham have had four corners, but have not pressure the Reds at the set-piece as of yet. Davies' delivery is punched clear by Karius with ease.
28' Davies wins possession with a robust challenge on Salah. Kane picks up the loose ball and weaves through a couple of challenges before firing at goal from the edge of the box. However, his effort is diverted behind for corner.
25' Liverpool fail to clear their lines from the first cross and the ball almost falls for Dier, but Van Dijk makes a last-ditch challenge to put him off. There are muted appeals for a penalty, which are dismissed by referee Moss.
24' Lovren concedes a corner out of nothing, although he says that he was pushed by Alli in the final third. Davies will whip the ball into the area.
23' Spurs lose possession in the middle of the park and Salah is sent down the right flank by Henderson. He lifts a cross into the box, but Lloris comes off his line to make the claim.
21' WIDE! Alexander-Arnold whips in a cross with pace towards Firmino's run in the box. The Brazilian makes glancing contact and watches as the ball trickles wide of the post. Close from the Reds.
19' Tottenham clear the corner, but Alexander-Arnold goes for a strike from the edge of the box. His effort travels through a crowd of players and Salah almost gets a touch, although the ball still goes wide of the post.
18' WIDE! Alexander-Arnold lifts a pass into the right inside channel for Milner's run. He angles a volley towards the far corner, but his strike takes a deflection and heads inches past the post.
17' BLOCK! Trippier reverses the ball into Son's path and he shapes to shoot at goal, only to be denied by a great block on the slide by Van Dijk.
15' Liverpool clear the danger from the corner and look for the quick ball over the top for Salah down the left, but Can's pass goes out of play.
14' Eriksen slides a throughball looking for the run of Kane. Alexander-Arnold takes the decision away from Karius, sliding to send the ball out for a corner.
13' Trippier does well under pressure at the back from Mane as he heads back to Lloris with the Senegalese lurking.
12' STAT ATTACK! Salah has netted 20 goals in just 25 games in the Premier League; the fewest appearances of any Liverpool player to reach 20 goals in the competition.
11' Mane closes down Sanchez on the left flank as the defender fails to clear into touch. He wins the ball and surges down the wing, but his low cross is sent behind by Dier.
9' Dembele makes a surge forward to escape the attention of Henderson. He slides the ball into Alli, who loses possession immediately from van Dijk's challenge. However, the referee brings back the play for a shirt pull from Henderson.
8' Salah looks for the run of Mane after robbing Alli of possession, but his pass is cut out by Sanchez. Liverpool have made a tenacious start to the contest.
7' Spurs are trying to get their foot on the ball to assert a rhythm in their play. Pochettino does not look impressed by his side's start on the touchline.
5' Eriksen finds space in the final third and goes for the drive, but Van Dijk makes the block and takes the pace off the ball, allowing Karius to gather.
Mohamed Salah
3' GOALLLLLLLLL!!!!!! SALAH PUTS LIVERPOOL AHEAD! Spurs get caught out at the back as a loose ball from Dier's challenge falls perfectly for the Egyptian. He has a free run at goal and does not disappoint with the finish, slotting the ball into the bottom corner. The perfect start for Liverpool.
2' Mane takes possession on the edge of the box, but as he looks for Can in the centre, Eriksen makes the interception.
1' We're underway at Anfield.
FLASHBACK! Spurs crushed Liverpool in their meeting earlier this season. Kane notched a brace, while goals from Son and Alli delivered the victory, despite an effort from Salah. Lovren had a day to forget against the England striker and will have an opportunity to get revenge this afternoon.
STAT ATTACK! Spurs have only lost more Premier League away matches at Old Trafford (21) than they have at Anfield (16).
STAT ATTACK! Liverpool have lost one of their last 23 home Premier League games against Spurs (W15 D7).
Tottenham are unchanged from their win over Manchester United. Kane leads the line supported by Spurs' frontline trio of Alli, Son and Eriksen. Eric Dier and Moussa Dembele retain their places in front of the back, despite the presence of Wanyama on the bench.Toby Alderweireld remains sidelined therefore Sanchez and Vertonghen continue in the backline. Harry Winks and Serge Aurier return from injury to start on the bench.
Liverpool have made two changes from their win over Huddersfield. Both come at the back as Alexander-Arnold and Van Dijk come into the fold to replace Joe Gomez, who misses out due to injury, and Joel Matip. Klopp opts against rotating in the middle of the park, keeping faith with Henderson and Milner ahead of Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wijnaldum.
Tottenham subs: Erik Lamela, Victor Wanyama, Michel Vorm, Moussa Sissoko, Fernando Llorente, Serge Aurier, Harry Winks.
TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Kieran Trippier, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen, Ben Davies; Eric Dier, Moussa Dembele; Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min; Harry Kane.
Liverpool subs: Georginio Wijnaldum, Alberto Moreno, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Simon Mignolet, Danny Ings, Dominic Solanke, Joel Matip.
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Loris Karius; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Andrew Robertson; James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Emre Can; Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah.
The team news has been announced and we'll start with the home side.
Spurs put forward arguably their best performance of the season to defeat Manchester United at Wembley. Christian Eriksen scored the third-fastest goal in Premier League history to put Mauricio Pochettino's men ahead, while an own goal from Phil Jones helped secure three points. The scoreline could have been greater than the two-goal margin, but Tottenham were guilty of wasting chances. They will need to be at their best once again, with a stronger clinical edge in the final third.
Liverpool ended a run of back-to-back defeats by defeating Huddersfield during the week. The Reds ran out comfortable victors at the John Smith's Stadium as goals from Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah secured the win. Jurgen Klopp's men needed the result to regain their composure in the battle for the top four, which looks to be heading down to the wire.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Liverpool and Tottenham at Anfield.
