Liverpool players stand by Salah after Harry Kane's successful goal appeal

Share

City have shipped six goals in the last two games, a concerning number, particularly with Tottenham forward Harry Kane eager to catch Mohamed Salah in the Golden Boot race.

Harry Kane was credited with Tottenham's second goal against Stoke City, which was initially given to Christian Eriksen.

Mauricio Pochettino recalled Rose to his starting XI for Spurs' 2-1 victory over Stoke City at the weekend but the left-back has suffered a recurrence of his persistent calf injury.

"Nobody has talked about it".

"After the goal you can see the clip when Harry says to Christian "I touched it with my right shoulder", and after the game they were happy".

'Harry could be very trustworthy individual and naturally he isn't going to lie about this case, ' Pochettino mentioned. Harry is generous, a person who always puts the collective ahead of himself.

"I don't care who scores the goals, I care about the three points". But it's not a big issue, not a big deal for the team.

Tottenham host Manchester City on Saturday which means Kyle Walker returns to his former club for the first time since his £50m move last summer.

Though his team boast a 10-point buffer to fifth-placed Chelsea, Pochettino believes Spurs are not yet assured of finishing inside the top four. Tottenham Hotspur must be ready for a Manchester City side that has been stung by three consecutive defeats, defender Ben Davies said ahead of Saturday's Premier League encounter.

The manager is said to be a fan of the Tottenham player, but what goes against Lamela is the long time he's been out injured, only returning at the end of past year. "It is a small or simple thing and sometimes they become bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and you can not stop it".
