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.
