Tottenham Hotspur were under plenty of pressure at Anfield, but they were managing to keep Liverpool out enough to hang onto the draw – that is until Serge Aurier intervened.
Were Tottenham too quick to sell Kieran Trippier?
Having already gone to ground to make one challenge on Sadio Mane, the Ivorian got back to his feet and swung to clear the ball, but ended up connecting with the back of the Liverpool winger’s leg instead, giving away a penalty, as shown in the highlights video on the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.
Mohamed Salah stepped up to take the spot-kick, smashing it past Paulo Gazzaniga for what turned out to be the winner:
74 – Goal for Liverpool. Salah scores from the spot.

This left many Spurs fans fuming with the right-back, feeling that this was just another showing of how unreliable he is, with plenty of them having responded similarly to his sending off against Southampton.
There are some who want Aurier out of the club, while one fan indicated that Spurs shouldn’t have let Kieran Trippier leave during the summer.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the mistake, including posts from fuming Spurs fans, can be seen below:
