Mauricio Pochettino vs Mo Salah: ‘Harry Kane isn’t a liar’

Mo Salah vs Harry Kane

The race to be the 2018 Premier League top goalscorer revved up this week when the Premier League belated awarded Tottenham’s second at Stoke to Harry Kane.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah took to social media to express his shock at the decision.

Liverpool only have five matches remaining while Tottenham have six to play.

It’s worth remembering that Kane finished last season on fire scoring four against Leicester and three against Hull.

Spurs also have a ‘good’ run of fixtures until the end of the campaign as they take on teams including Brighton, Watford, Newcastle, West Brom and Leicester City.

Kane has 25 Premier League goals, while Liverpool’s Mo Salah remains top of the charts with 29 goals.

Mauricio Pochettino: ‘Harry Kane isn’t a liar’

Prior to Tottenham’s match against Man City at Wembley on Saturday night, Mauricio Pochettino has spoken about Kane.

Pochettino has defended the Spurs striker against claims he lied about the goal vs Stoke:

Of course, he never thought that this situation would escalate, when he was so certain that he touched the ball.

After the game Harry said he touched the ball with a shoulder, he told Christian. I think Harry is a very honest person, he’s not going to lie about this situation. It’s not a big issue for the team.

It’s normal that he was a little bit disappointed [by the response] because Harry and all our players have Twitter, Instagram and all those things and while Tottenham fans will have supported him, fans of other clubs will have killed him.
