The Full Conversation Between Eriksen, Can And Match Officials Revealed, And It's Very Interesting
'Super Sunday' served up a classic as Liverpool and Spurs drew 2-2, with the visitors earning not one but TWO somewhat debatable penalties.
Harry Kane won his side a penalty, then Erik Lamela also received a spot-kick after being fouled by Virgil van Dijk.
Though the decision to give the first penalty got everybody talking including Christian Eriksen, Emre Can and the match officials who deliberated over the award of the penalty.
With the game evenly posed at 1-a-piece, Jon Moss and linesman, Eddie Smart, halted the game to decide whether Kane was offside or if Dejan Lovren played him on.
And while Moss and Smart were conversing, Spurs' Danish midfielder and then-Liverpool captain Can also chipped in.
Smart: "All I need to know is, did Lovren touch the ball?"

Moss: "I don't know."
Smart: "If he's not touched the ball, it is offside, so you're chalking off the penalty. It has to be offside if Lovren has not touched the ball."
Eriksen: "He did touch the ball."
Can: "He didn't touch the ball."
Moss: "Just talk to me again."
Smart: "You know what I'm asking; I need to clarify, has Lovren touched the ball? If he has, it's a deliberate action and, therefore, it's a penalty. If he has not, it is offside."
Moss: "I have no idea whether Lovren touched the ball to be honest with you. Martin, have you got anything from TV? I'm giving the penalty."
He then gave the penalty which Kane actually missed before converting in stoppage time to bag a point, while scoring his 100th Premier League goal.
