The Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel has awarded Tottenham Hotspur’s second goal against Stoke City to Harry Kane having been initially awarded to teammate Christian Eriksen.
Tottenham saw off Stoke City 2-1 at the Bet365 Arena on Saturday, however, there was much debate surrounding the goal scorer of the visitor’s second with Kane adamant he got the final touch.
Tottenham launched an official appeal on Monday, with Kane hopeful of catching Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.
Golden Boot race hots up
With Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah five goals (now four) ahead of Kane in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot, the Englishman was desperate to claim Saturday’s winning goal against Stoke, with the club launching an official appeal.
Christian Eriksen swung in a free-kick which Kane was adamant he got the final touch on to find the back of the net past Jack Butland and earn Tottenham three vital Premier League points.
Kane looked destined to surrender the Premier League Golden Boot to Salah just four weeks ago after suffering ankle ligament damage against Bournemouth.
On Saturday, he made a miraculous returned to Mauricio Pochettino’s line-up against Stoke with the aim to win his side all three points and hunt down Liverpool’s Egyptian talent.
The race for the Golden Boot appears to be very much on with Kane now just four goals behind the Egyptian with six games left to play having been awarded the goal.
