But neither were able to emerge a winner in this hotly contested bout.

Son Heung-min finished off a brilliant sweeping counter attack to give Spurs a 56th minute lead.

Harry Kane brought down a long ball by Emerson Royal, before passing the ball wide to Ryan Sessegnon, who composedly squared for Son.

Liverpool levelled on 74 minutes, when Luis Diaz’s shot from range deflected in off Rodrigo Bentancur.
