No matter which club you support, many have to start getting scared at the level of officiating in the premier league. The rate at which controversial decisions are emerging is becoming too alarming. Firstly, it was Harry Kane that tricked the official to give a penalty in the 85th minute. From several angles, the penalty was one that might not have been given.
A second penalty was awarded after referee Jon Moss had already waved play on in the last minute of the game only for the linesman to call it a penalty. If the first penalty was a controversial one, this was a dubious call. This has to be one the FA will take a keen interest in going forward. It is no wonder no English referees have been shortlisted for the world cup in Russia.
Despite being silent for a major part of the game, Harry Kane finally got a goal for himself to earn Spurs a crucial draw at Anfield. The goal was his 100th in the league. It only took the Spurs talisman 141 games to reach this landmark, the second quickest to reach that feat after Alan Shearer did his after 124 games. Kane can’t stop scoring.
Mohamed Salah has been a shining star in Liverpool team this season. The incredible Egyptian has helped Liverpool remain in many games this season by his goals. With his brace in the game, he now has 21 league goals after just 25 games, an astonishing record in his debut season for Liverpool which is only bettered by Fernando Torres who scored 24 for Liverpool in his debut season-2007/08 season.
It won’t surprise anyone if at this rate he scores over 30 goals for Liverpool before the end of the season. Liverpool has gotten themselves a goal machine.
