Cheeky Jordan Henderson joins the Harry Kane banter bus

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah, Kane's competitor for the Premier League Golden Boot, took to Twitter to share his disbelief at the Premier League's ruling and found support from quite a few of his club mates.

The England global striker appealed to the Premier League after the goal was initially awarded to Spurs team-mate Christian Eriksen, though the decision was overturned by the league's Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel.

Christian Eriksen pulled a goal back for Tottenham shortly before half-time when City were leading 2-0 but Spurs failed to build on their momentum at the start of the second half.

Alli said: "Harry is an unbelievable striker".

Salah is now on 30 goals with 4 games left, while Kane has 25 goals and 5 games left.

Salah took to Twitter to offer his take.

Kane's goal will certainly go down in the dubious goals panel, for despite incessant tv replays of the moment, there seemed to be inconclusive evidence backing the 24-year-old's claims. Aguero is similar, so he's [Salah] got to keep going'. "We need to show ourselves that we can compete".

Mohamed Salah is in the middle of the most prolific scoring season by a Liverpool player since the heyday of Ian Rush.

"We need to be consistent during the whole season and be the best team like Manchester City is doing today".

However, ahead of Kane playing for Spurs against Manchester City on Saturday night, Salah had reestablished his five-goal cushion, his goal against Bournemouth his 30th of the league campaign.

After it was originally ruled that Christian Eriksen had scored Tottenham's second goal at Stoke last week, the club -presumably at the request of Kane - successfully appealed that the ball had in fact touched the England striker last before entering the goal.

"Do I want my team-mates to pass the ball more?"

"I am happy to have this feeling, you know".
