Kane awarded Tottenham goal after appeal

Tottenham's Harry Kane looks towards the ball

Harry Kane has added to his tally for the season after being awarded a goal from last weekend's win at Stoke that was originally seen as Christian Eriksen's.

Kane gave a plea following the match against Stoke at the weekend, calling for the Premier League to award him the goal - claiming that it brushed his shoulder on its way past Stoke's Jack Butland - but the dubious goals panel chose to hand it to his teammate Eriksen. However, the goal was soon awarded to Denmark playmaker Eriksen, despite Kane's protests.

If they (the Premier League) turn it around, they turn it around.

The Premier League has today ruled that it's Kane's goal.

"While the goal has now been awarded to Harry Kane after review, this will not be reassigned in Fantasy Premier League and therefore points will not be modified".

Kane's latest distinction aside, he still trails Salah by four goals. I mean I love @HKane and I believe he is the best striker England had since @alanshearer but he shouldn't have said anything after the @stokecity game and just let it go!

"Obviously as a striker, it would be great to win the Golden Boot again and I will keep working hard from now until the end of the season".

Salah has scored 39 goals for Liverpool in all competitions this season, to Kane's 35 for Spurs - a run all the more remarkable for it being the Egypt international's first campaign at Anfield.
