Mo Salah Responds To Harry Kane Being Awarded Goal Vs Stoke
Somehow the Premier League have decided that Harry Kane should be awarded the goal from Sunday that he didn't seem to get a touch on and Mo Salah can't seem to believe it, nor can we.
Christian Eriksen scored against Stoke from a free kick on Sunday and Harry Kane got quite near it. Like it was difficult to tell if the Englishman touched it but for all the world it didn't look like he did at all on closer inspection.

Of course Kane, like any good striker, was still trying to claim it after full time no doubt with the pursuit of the Premier League's top goalscorer award on his mind, and Mo Salah's form meaning he's starting to pull away.
The goal was given to Eriksen after the match but in a classy move Spurs decided to kick up a fuss akin to a toddler sitting on the floor in a supermarket because their mum wouldn't buy them a toy.
Now the Premier League have overturned the goal and given it to Kane. Mo Salah and some of his Liverpool colleagues clearly aren't too convinced by the decision, and understandably so:
Wooooooow really ?

It does seem a little bit petty from Spurs to actually openly lobby for their man to get given the goal, especially when it really doesn't look like he got anywhere near it and looks like a desperate ploy to try and win him the golden boot.
Kane is definitely the kid who ran home with his ball when he didn't get a penalty decision in his favour in the street.
Currently Salah has four more goals than his rivals for the top scorer award but Kane did score seven goals in the last two games last season so who knows what could happen this year.
For Premier League Fantasy Football managers there's good or bad news, depending who you've got in your team as the goal will not be changed in accordance with their rules, "Points awarded in-game are subject to change up until one hour after the final whistle of the last match of any given day.
"Once the points have been updated on that day, no further adjustments are made."
(I know I've gone a little bit too far on the criticism but it's just not his goal, okay!)
