A Premier League Spokesperson talked about: 'Harry Kane has been awarded Tottenham Hotspur's second goal of their 2-1 win in opposition to Stoke Metropolis on Saturday, after the membership and participant effectively appealed to the Premier League's Objective Accreditation Appeals Panel.

Kane said: "I swear on my daughter's life that I touched the ball, but there's nothing I can do".

The England striker was so determined to have the goal overturned in his favour because he faces a major fight to defend his Golden Boot award.

Spurs host Premier League leaders Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday.

Within minutes of the news breaking that Kane had been retrospectively given the goal, the league's leading scorer, the Liverpool forward Mo Salah, tweeted: "Wooooooow really?".

Please do justice for Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and see to that the Supreme Court judgement is followed. This is an open appeal to the Prime Minister.

Salah's teammates Gini Wijnaldum, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Simon Mignolet also took to Twitter, using emojis and GIFs to show their surprise at the decision.

A number of players have expressed their shock from the decision including Leicester City's Jamie Vardy, English football's legend Alan Shearer and even Salah himself along with a number of Liverpool players.

Tottenham have appealed to the Premier League to have the goal given to Kane and the issue was being looked at on Tuesday, with a decision likely to be made by Wednesday.

Kane's latest distinction aside, he still trails Salah by four goals. Whatever happens, there are still games to go. I can't control what he (Salah) does.

"We have to carry on - nothing's given to you in the Premier League so we have to keep winning".
