Lennon hits late Spurs winner
Aaron Lennon scored deep into stoppage-time as Tottenham completed another amazing comeback to beat Liverpool 2-1 and stay in the Barclays Premier League title hunt.
An incident-packed game looked certain to end in a 1-1 draw after Martin Skrtel scored at both ends and Jermain Defoe also missed a penalty.
Several other clear-cut chances went begging for both sides before Lennon became the hero to move Spurs to within a point of fourth-placed Manchester City and back to within six of the summit.
It was an open start to the game, with both sides pressing for an early advantage and Spurs keeper Heurelho Gomes had to be on his guard to tip away a Maxi Rodriguez shot.
Spurs felt they could have had a penalty after Alan Hutton was hauled down, but they should have been ahead soon after when Defoe, on for the injured Rafael Van der Vaart, saw his six-yard shot miraculously blocked by Skrtel to deny a certain goal.
Gomes again had to be alert to deflect a Raul Meireles effort wide, but he could not do anything to stop Liverpool going ahead shortly before the break when Skrtel reacted first to a loose ball to prod home. And Liverpool should have doubled their lead moments later but Rodriguez wasted a golden opportunity after a fine pass from Fernando Torres.
Tottenham searched for a response in the second period and Liverpool were again reliant on some last-ditch defending as Meireles cleared Gareth Bale's volley. And Spurs thought they had found a way back into the game when David Ngog handled Bale's free-kick in the area, but Defoe wasted his penalty, dragging it wide.
But Defoe was let off the hook four minutes later when Spurs drew level after a surging run from Luka Modric saw Skrtel turn into his own net.
Meireles slammed a 20-yard effort just wide as both sides went for it, while Defoe had an effort ruled out for offside. But Lennon won it when he latched onto Peter Crouch's flick to slot home.
