LONDON, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 27th August, 2016) - Left-back Danny Rose's 72nd-minute equaliser earned Tottenham Hotspur a 1-1 draw with Liverpool in a hard-fought Premier League encounter at White Hart Lane on Saturday. James Milner gave Liverpool a deserved lead with a penalty shortly before half-time, but Spurs got their reward for a spell of sustained second-half pressure when Rose drilled home the equaliser. The England full-back's strike means he has already matched his tally from last season and it preserved Spurs' unbeaten record following their draw at Everton and victory over Crystal Palace.
It was a frustrating outcome for visiting manager Jurgen Klopp on his return to the scene of his first game at the Liverpool helm last October, which ended in a 0-0 draw. His side showed a much sharper cutting edge than in last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Burnley, but their inability to close the game out enabled Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs to rescue a point. It was a contest between two teams who like to press high up the pitch and in the first half it was Tottenham who had the greatest difficulty playing the ball out from the back.
