[VIDEO] Van Dijk clearly pulls out ?

Liverpool and Tottenham played out a thrilling 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday in a match which featured plenty of controversial moments.

The Reds took the lead after only three minutes thanks to a goal from top scorer Mo Salah.With 10 minutes to go, Tottenham equalised thanks to a stunning long-distance strike from Victor Wanyama.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp contested referee Jon Moss’ decision to award Spurs their first spot-kick after Karius brought down Kane inside the box, but former Premier League match official Dermot Gallagher says the correct decision was made.He told Sky Sports: “The first penalty is very interesting. [Harry] Kane is in an offside position and [Dejan] Lovren has the chance to clear the ball and takes a chance.

“He has an ample opportunity to clear it. He doesn’t clear it and he’s clearly hit the ball. The ball comes through to Kane who is now not offside, as the law states.

“I thought it was excellent because you can quite clearly hear Eddie Smart say to Jon Moss, “I don’t know if he’s played the ball.

“It might have taken a bit of time but at the end they came to the right decision and both officials should be applauded. Lovren miskicks the ball so Kane is therefore onside. /source Here and Here
