Harry Kane has expressed his disappointment with the reaction from Mohamed Salah and Jamie Vardy over his Stoke City goal appeal, according to Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Christian Eriksen was initially credited for Tottenham’s second goal against Stoke last Saturday, but Kane was adamant that he had the final touch even though subsequent replays were inconclusive.

Spurs and Kane launched an appeal to the Premier League for the goal to be awarded to the England striker and the Premier League on Wednesday confirmed that their appeal had been successful, meaning that Kane is now on 25 goals for the season and only four behind Salah.

Following the news, Salah posted on Twitter: ‘woooooow really’, while other Liverpool players joined the Egyptian in mocking the decision.

Kane in an interview ahead of their Premier League showdown with runaway leaders Manchester City said: He [Salah] has done great, he has had an amazing season and has gone ahead, so we will see [if I can catch him].

"Because we are battling against Liverpool for the top four as well it’s a bit of excitement. He scores four, let’s see what I can come back with.

"Whatever happens at the end of the season both of us will have had good seasons and we both enjoy it. It’s just the competition and trying to win, that’s what I enjoy." said Kane, according to the Metro

While Kane will hope to close the gap on Salah in Saturday’s Premier League clash against Manchester City at Wembley, Salah, meanwhile, can pull further clear when Liverpool welcome Bournemouth to Anfield.
