Pochettino says Kane will learn from goal-gate controversy amid criticism

Salah and Kane

The defeat by the champions elect wasn't too damaging in that Spurs are still a healthy seven points ahead of Chelsea in the race for the final Champions League spot.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, who now leads the race for the Golden Boot, expressed his disbelief over the decision on Twitter - as did a number of other footballers including Virgil van Dijk and Jamie Vardy.

Harry Kane is looking to overtake Mohamed Salah for the Golden Boot.

"(Salah) told me he's going to claim all of them", Henderson told BT Sport after the Egypt global scored his 30th league goal of the campaign.

After the Premier League announced that they would be awarding Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane a goal previously credited to Christian Eriksen, social media was inundated with memes pulling the Spurs frontman's leg and now master impersonator and comedian Darren Farley has waded into the debate in his inimitable style. "I don't care about the rest".

"For me, it's a deal between them and if the club believes it was right to appeal, there's nothing to say for me". To win the Champions League is huge for everyone. "I think he is going to learn a lot from this you know".

"[Salah] told me he's going to claim all of them", Henderson told BT Sport after his team-mate netted his 30th top-flight goal of a remarkable campaign.

"I am also sure that Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane, and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero".

Salah raised an eyebrow last week when he tweeted "Wooooooow really?" after Kane won his controversial appeal to claim Tottenham's victor against Stoke City.

"Of course he never thought that this situation was going to go on to such big things when he was so, so, so, so certain that he touched the ball", the Argentinian added.

Salah is just the third player in Liverpool's history to score 40 goals in a season, joining Roger Hunt and Ian Rush, and the latter's club record of 47 is the next feat in his sights.
