DmitarBerbatov was proved wrong with his prediction for the Premier League clash between hosts Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at the weekend. The former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker had predicted a 2-1 win for his former team in his column for the Metro. According to DmitarBerbatov, Liverpool concede goals, while Spurs have proven to be more organised since new manager Antonio Conte took charge of the team last month.

At the end of the game played at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, DmitarBerbatov was proved wrong as he missed both the scoreline and the outcome as the two teams played out a thrilling 2-2 draw. The two sides produced one of the best games of the season though some controversial decisions from centre referee Paul Tierney appeared to overshadowthe quality of the game afterwards.

Spurs scored the first goal of the game through star striker Harry Kane on 13 minutes off the assist from French player Tanguy Ndombele. Kanehas misfired in front of goal in the Premier League on the back of his failed transfer move to Manchester City during this summer’s transfer window.His goal against Liverpool was just his second in the league this season. Kane was a lucky man in the first half of the Liverpool game as he was fortunate to remain on the pitch following his poor tackle on Scottish fullback Andy Robertson. Robertson was fortunate to escape with an injury and he picked himself up to provide the assist forDiogo Jota to score the Liverpool equaliser. The goal took Jota into double figures on the Premier League stage this season.

Robertson ensured that Liverpool turned the game around with the second goal in the 69th minute, but the lead didn’t last for more than five minutes as Son Heung-Min pounced on an error from Liverpool shot stopper Alisson Becker to score the equaliser for his team. Robertson was then given a straight red card for a foul on Spurs right-back Emerson Royal in the 77th minute. In the end, the two teams settled for two goals apiece.
