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 English Premier League game yesterday.

Mohamed Salah, who opened the scoring for Liverpool in the third minute, looked like he had 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 had 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 UEFA Champions League qualification, with Liverpool in third and Tottenham in fifth place.

In the day's other game, hosts Crystal Palace and Newcastle drew 1-1 at Selhurst Park.
