I Didn't Dive! Tottenham's Kane Hits Back At Liverpool

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has hit back at Liverpool claims he dived during Sunday's 2-2 draw.
Reds defender Virgil van Dijk claimed that Kane had dived to win the first spot-kick which was kept out by Loris Karius.

But Kane hit back, saying:
"He (Karius) has dived, he has got in the way and I'm a player, I'm not going to jump out of the way because it's football.

"I've definitely felt contact and I've gone down.

 "For (Erik) Lamela's one, I thought the linesman showed amazing character to give that because a lot happened for the first one about the linesman so to give that penalty was massive and it was a penalty."

He added: "Obviously getting the first penalty you are thinking 'I'm going to score the winner' and then you miss it and it goes down the other end.

"I've got the team down and get another one (penalty) and now I've got to step up again. I was delighted to score it and get my 100th goal and delighted to get something out of the game, which I thought we deserved."
