Kane awarded Spurs second goal against Stoke after successful appeal

Share

Mo Salah has expressed his shock at Harry Kane being retrospectively awarded a goal in opposition to Stoke as a result of the Liverpool striker tweeted: 'Wooooooow really?'

Harry Kane has been awarded Tottenham Hotspur's second goal in their 2-1 Premier League victory at Stoke City after the England star appealed against the decision to give it to Christian Eriksen. Currently, though, the goal is officially Eriksen's third in two games rather than Kane's first since returning from injury.

It said the decision had been reversed "after taking the player's testimony into account and reviewing the match footage".

The Londoners are now placed fourth in the league table with 67 points, level on with Liverpool, though they have one game in hand.

Kane, however, insisted that he had got a touch to Eriksen's free kick - and swore on his daughter's life after the game -...

Vardy, who has 16 Premier League goals this season, was clearly none too impressed by the decision to award Kane the goal.

"If they can turn it around, they can turn it around".

Should Kane beat Salah to the individual award come the end of the season, he'll also be forced to eclipse his record amount of goals in one Premier League season (also 29) that he set last campaign.

Kane, who has now scored 25 goals, still trails Liverpool sensation Salah by four as the 2017-18 season draws to a close. "The most important thing is that we won the game".

Tottenham have six league games left, with the their next clash coming against Manchester City on Saturday, while Liverpool have five matches remaining.
