Tottenham Goal At Stoke Awarded To Harry Kane

Christian Eriksen celebrates after Tottenham went 2-1 up away to Stoke on Saturday

The goal was initially awarded to Christian Eriksen but Tottenham lodged an appeal after Kane adamantly claimed the goal as his own.

"He celebrated like it was his goal so I expect he touched it", he said.

Although the Premier League awarded Tottenham's second goal against Stoke to Christian Eriksen, Mauricio Pochettino reveals Harry Kane still feels it grazed his shoulder on its way in.

Mauricio Pochettino's only focus after Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 win at Stoke was the battle for Champions League qualification this season.

Liverpool players have mocked Harry Kane's successful appeal to be awarded his 25th Premier League goal of the season. I swear it was my goal, you've got to take my word for it. The most important thing is the three points for us. Mohamed Salah has 29 goals with five games left to play while Kane has 24 scoring strikes with six contests left on the campaign.

Kane remains confident he can pip Salah irrespective of how the appeal turns out, saying: "I still believe I can". "Look, whatever happens, there are still games to go".

"I still believe I can", the England worldwide said.

He said: "I've been trying to improve a lot of aspects of my game and I want to keep my head [in those situations]".

With the top four race largely over, where is the motivation meant to come from to face a mid-table league opponent following a physically and mentally draining night like Tuesday?

Salah's teammates Gini Wijnaldum, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Simon Mignolet also took to Twitter, using emojis and GIFs to show their surprise at the decision.
