Tottenham's Victor Wanyama (top) celebrates with teammates after defender Danny Rose equalised during the Premier League match against Liverpool at White Hart Lane in London, on August 27, 2016Left-back Danny Rose's 72nd-minute equaliser earned Tottenham Hotspur a 1-1 draw with Liverpool in a hard-fought Premier League encounter at White Hart Lane on Saturday. James Milner gave Liverpool a deserved lead with a penalty shortly before half-time, but Spurs got their reward for a spell of sustained second-half pressure when Rose drilled home the equaliser. The England full-back's strike means he has already matched his tally from last season and it preserved Spurs' unbeaten record following their draw at Everton and victory over Crystal Palace.
