James Milner follows Jordan Henderson in mocking Harry Kane's goal appeal

Share

After it was originally ruled that Christian Eriksen had scored Tottenham's second goal at Stoke last week, the club -presumably at the request of Kane - successfully appealed that the ball had in fact touched the England striker last before entering the goal.

All aboard! The Harry Kane "phantom goal" banter bus has another passenger.

"He [Salah] told me he was gonna claim all of them [the goals]", Henderson told the BT after the game.

Kane has targeted overhauling Mohamed Salah as the Premier League's top scorer, although the Liverpool forward scored his 30th league goal of the season in Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth, moving him five clear of Kane, who was frustrated in Spurs 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Salah is just the third player in Liverpool's history to score 40 goals in a season, joining Roger Hunt and Ian Rush, and the latter's club record of 47 is the next feat in his sights.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring in the first half before the Egypt global netted his 30th goal in the Premier League with a superb header over Asmir Begovic. "I don't believe Salah needs this situation to be inspired. come on, you make me laugh".

"We've seen what he has done before".

"I am happy to have this feeling".

"Harry's a very honest person, he's not going to lie about this situation".

"Of course (the golden boot) is in my mind".

"He was disappointed because he never wanted to create this". For you, sometimes, it is a small or simple thing and they become bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and you can not stop it.

Tottenham are on a 14-match unbeaten run in the Premier League going back to December when they were beaten by this Saturday's opponents Manchester City.

Pochettino does not think that beating City this time would prove they can compete for future titles. Not if a recent tweet by one of AS Roma's official twitter accounts is anything to go by.

"We need to be consistent during the whole season and be the best team like Manchester City is doing today".
