Last weekend's heated clash between Liverpool and Tottenham got the world talking for a couple of days at least, and it is only now that things are beginning to die down.

So let's ramp it up again, eh?

It was a match featuring an early Mohamed Salah goal, Dele Alli dive , a stunning goal from Victor Wanyama, a controversial was he/wasn't he offside call featuring Harry Kane before he won, and then missed, the following penalty, a moment of genius from Salah and then another controversial Spurs penalty scored by Kane.

That all added up to a 2-2 draw between two of the best and most entertaining teams in the division, but the fallout then became the most entertaining bit.

Liverpool fans were left livid at the two controversial penalties awarded to Spurs, but if you thought that footage from the tunnel cam at Anfield - released on Liverpool's YouTube channel - would show Reds players raging then you'd be wrong. 

They actually seemed pretty okay with it.

Admittedly, Emre Can didn't look too happy as he made his way down the tunnel, taking off his captain's armband as he did so.

But then what followed appeared to be nothing more than a Liverpool-Spurs love-in.

First there was Reds sub Danny Ings having a nice chat with his former Burnley teammate Kieran Trippier.

Then Belgium colleagues Simon Mignolet and Jan Vertonghen had a lovely hug and a chat.

And then Dejan Lovren - one of the Liverpool players so incensed by the penalty decisions - greeted Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, who signed him for Southampton in 2013, with a warm hug before the latter's post-match interview.

The love-in seemed to go on and on, and was enough to confuse Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, who clearly didn't have anyone on the Spurs team that he could hug post-match and so therefore felt a little left out.

Modern football, eh?
