Kane rescues point with last-gasp penalty

TOTTENHAM rescued a point in a thrilling 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Anfield with Harry Kane equalising from the penalty spot with virtually the last kick of a pulsating encounter to bag his 100th Premier League goal.

Mohamed Salah had looked to have won it for Liverpool thanks to a wonderful individual effort, only for Kane to make amends for missing an earlier penalty on 87 minutes.

Salah also opened the scoring early on to notch his 20th goal of the league campaign – a 100-1 shot with Sky Bet before the season started – but Victor Wanyama’s thunderbolt with ten minutes remaining put Spurs level  to set-up the grandstand finish.

Wanyama’s long-range screamer is 9-2 with Betway to be named as the goal of the season but the main aim for Spurs and Liverpool will be to finish in the Champions League positions.

Liverpool, who remain third, are 1-4 and fifth-placed Tottenham, two points back on Jurgen Klopp’s men, are 10-11 to finish in the top four this term.

The Merseysiders are also 3-1 with bet365 in their betting without Premier League leaders Manchester City, while Spurs are 14-1 in a market headed by 4-6 shots Manchester United.

In terms of the Golden Boot 22-goal Kane is 4-11 with Betfred and 21-goal Salah is 3-1.

Crystal Palace and Newcastle edged themselves further away from relegation trouble with a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park.

Mo Diame put Newcastle ahead but Palace grabbed a deserved draw via a Luka Milivojevic penalty.

Zenit v Celtic

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Zenit have won 16 of their last 17 home Europa League matches
Expert verdict
Excluding qualifiers, Celtic have never won on the road in the Europa League in 13 attempts and that could spell trouble for the Scottish champions despite the Bhoys travelling to Russia with a fully deserved 1-0 first-leg advantage. Zenit should improve for the run after returning from their winter break at Parkhead.
