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

They will be crowned Premier League champions if Manchester United fail to beat West Brom on Sunday afternoon.

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.

Mohamed Salah would trade the Golden Boot for Champions League glory.

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

The Premier League's leading marksman scored for the 30th time in the division this season against Bournemouth at Anfield to restore a five-goal cushion over Harry Kane in the race for the golden boot.

He said: "Of course after the game, Harry said, "I touched the ball with my right shoulder".

Tottenham fans took to Twitter to criticise Harry Kane for his performance, or lack thereof, against Manchester City on Saturday.

You know it's been another good season and improvement when I now don't even think about Arsenal coming above us when I used to panic every week the last few years that they would get us!

With nothing left to play for, Kane scored seven goals in the final two matches of last season to win a second consecutive Golden Boot ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

"Yeah he's a big player for us, so hopefully he keeps scoring for us".

Ever since Harry Kane's appeal to have Tottenham's second goal from their game against Stoke awarded to him was successful, it's fair to say he's received some stick - and re-imagining other goals Kane might be looking to take credit for has become a running joke.

"After taking the player's testimony into account and reviewing the match footage, a three-person panel agreed that the final touch on the ball belonged to Kane", a statement released by the Premier League read.

"I will try my best to score again and help the team".
