Watch: Coutinho puts Liverpool ahead, Harry Kane equalizes for Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur had a golden opportunity to cut Leicester City’s lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League to just two points but would have to go to one of their least favorite places in the England to do so. Anfield.

Liverpool have not been kind to Spurs recently, as Spurs last beat them back in 2012 when Gareth Bale scored twice.

The two sides played a thrilling first half, which only ended 0-0 thanks to some incredible saves by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. If you were Liverpool you certainly had every right to feel unlucky that you weren’t ahead at the half after looking like the better team for much of the first half.

Liverpool wouldn’t have to wait long after the break though, when Philippe Coutinho finally put Liverpool ahead.

But Tottenham aren’t second in the league chasing Leicester City by accident. Just like he did against Arsenal, Spurs talisman Harry Kane was on the scene to provide Tottenham with a moment of magic.

The game ended 1-1 but what a thrilling 1-1 draw that was.
