After a week of postponements due to the coronavirus pandemic, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool lifted spirits with a thrilling 2-2 draw in the English Premier League ahead of Christmas on Sunday.
A mistake by goalkeeper Alisson Becker gave Tottenham a equalizer through Son Heung-min in the 74th minute, after coach Jurgen Klopp’s team responded to the host’s advance by Harry Kane through Diogo Jota and Andy Robertson.
Liverpool, who had failed to win for the first time in their last nine matches in all competitions, finished with 10 men after Robertson was sent off after a violent tackle.
Tottenham have not played for two weeks and two league matches were postponed after the outbreak of the Corona virus among their ranks, but he performed wonderfully and missed many opportunities.
In the end, the tie was fair in a match that raised morale in light of the cloud of anxiety imposed by the pandemic.
Liverpool enters the Christmas period, three points behind leaders Manchester City, who had won 4-0 at Newcastle United, while Tottenham are seventh with 26 points from 15 games.
