Kane awarded goal against Stoke as Salah questions decision

The goal against Stoke City will now go down as Harry Kane's and it moves him closer to Mo Salah in the top goalscorer charts in the Premier League.

Harry Kane has been awarded the goal against stoke that led to Tottenham Hotspurs' win over Stoke City at the weekend. The goal-hungry striker is in a battle with Liverpool's Mo Salah to become the top goalscorer in the Premier League this season and has inched closer with a plus one being added to his tally.

It leaves Salah with some breathing space atop the goal-scoring charts with 29 and Kane sitting in second with 25 goals. He said before it was awarded to him: "I touched the ball, but there's nothing I can do. If they turn it around, they turn it around. If they take my word, they take my word."

Mo Salah and several of his Liverpool teammates are not so sure about the decision and have taken to Twitter to respond to the decision.

Virgil Van Dijk was just as perplexed as the Egyptian. 

Alan Shearer also has a bone to pick with the Premier League over nine of goals he believed were his.
