Salah would trade Golden Boot for Champions League

16 April 2018

Mauricio Pochettino insists that Tottenham's second goal at Stoke last weekend being awarded to Harry Kane is "not a big issue".

"After the game Harry said he touched the ball with a shoulder, he told Christian".

Shortly after Henderson made a similar joke during his post-game interview on BT Sport, Milner used his recently launched Twitter account to claim that the Egyptian worldwide was waiting for the dubious goals panel to award him the goals scored by Mane and Firmino.

Hot on the heels of Jordan Henderson suggesting Mo Salah might try and claim all three of Liverpool's goals against Bournemouth on Saturday evening, up popped James Milner.

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane are locked in a fierce battle for the Golden Boot, and this week we saw that competition get taken to another dimension.

Kane now trails Salah by five goals with five league games left to play, and will hope to decrease the deficit against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday (AEST). A year ago against (Romelu) Lukaku it was a tough competition and he finished the season really strongly with the amount of goals he scored.

In only eight minutes, Chelsea turned from losing 2-0 to a 3-2 victory in the game against Southampton held at St. Crystal Palace had been set to drop into the bottom three on goal difference prior to Chelsea's comeback.

Dele Alli says Harry Kane must ignore the detractors after the England striker was the subject of negative headlines this week. "He's got to keep going and try to get as many as he can".

Saturday's defeat, Spurs' first in 14 matches, left them seven points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea with five games to play and Alli added: "As a team, we looked to finish top four and we would be very disappointed if we didn't, even though we know how hard it is".

Since the decision, there's been a running joke that Kane is now claiming every goal possible - even if he's not even playing in the match. "It's like that, but in the end we play as a team".

"I am happy to have this feeling, you know".

The finish was excellent, but no more impressive than the pass by Trent Alexander-Arnold, who's enjoying his best spell as a Liverpool player following two breakout performances against Manchester City in the Champions League.
