Tottenham appeal second goal against Stoke to be awarded to Harry Kane
Tottenham overcame Ramadan Sobhi’s Stoke City at bet365 Stadium to continue their pursue of a top 4 position in the Premier League. Christian Eriksen put the Spurs in the lead before Mame Diouf leveled things for the hosts.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men refused to settle for the point and got a second goal which was subject of controversy on whether Spurs’ talisman Harry Kane got the final touch or not.
Kane was adamant after the game that Eriksen’s cross touched his shoulder before hitting the net. However, the Premier League have officially credited the goal to the Danish star as it appeared that Kane did not touch the ball.
Tottenham decided to present an appeal on the Premier League’s table asking for the second goal against Stoke to be assigned to the England international, which would give him a boost in his race for the Premier League golden boot with Liverpool hero Mohamed Salah.
Salah has 29 goals in the Premier League this season, while Kane’s tally has stopped at 24.
