 Diogo Jota, a Liverpool player, crushes Tottenham's hearts with a costly ref decision.

Liverpool defeated Tottenham 4-3 in a thrilling game on Sunday at Anfield thanks to a last-second goal. Before Diogo Jota scored late to secure all three points, Spurs nearly stole a draw on Merseyside.


Within the first 15 minutes, Liverpool quickly jumped out to a 3-0 lead. Curtis Jones started the scoring with a deft close-range finish.

 After that, Luis Diaz scored in his first game since October, and Mohamed Salah added a third goal from the penalty spot. Harry Kane helped Spurs rally after they had previously fallen behind.


Heung-min In the second half, Richarlison scored his first Premier League goal for Spurs after coming off the bench to further cut the gap. However, Diogo Jota scored in the dying moments after Lucas Moura made a costly error, as Express Sport examines four lessons from the game.

Referee penalises Spurs:

Jota's late goal preserved his excellent goal-scoring form. Unexpectedly, Lucas attempted to pass back to his defenders but was only able to set up the Portugal star for a score.


He crossed over Fraser Forster while maintaining his composure. However, Spurs supporters will feel rightfully resentful that Jota was allowed to enter the pitch.


The 26-year-old wasn't even a starter until the 63rd minute. But soon after, he made a high tackle on Oliver Skipp that might have resulted in a red card.


Skipp was struck in the face by Jota, who drew blood. Paul Tierney, the referee, merely issued a yellow card, and VAR decided not to step.


Klopp eventually receives a response:

For a very long time, Klopp has been looking for a midfielder who can score goals. But in Curtis Jones, he might have at last found a remedy.

The 22-year-old is a part of the midfield three that Klopp has chosen. Perhaps all he required to reach his potential was to sense that confidence from his manager.
