The club have lodged an appeal to the Premier League in a bid to ensure Harry Kane is credited for our second goal against Stoke, according to Sky Sports.

Harry was adamant he should have been awarded the winning goal in the 2-1 victory on Saturday after claiming Christian Eriksen’s free-kick glanced his shoulder on its way into the net.

However Eriksen was credited with the goal but the club have now appealed to the Premier League as Harry looks to boost his chances of winning the Golden Boot.

He has scored 24 goals in the league this season, and is 5 behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot

Kane said after the game : “It’s my goal for sure. It flicked off my shoulder and went in. I swear that’s mine. It was just off my shoulder. I don’t care, it’s my goal.”

Eriksen is more than happy to give the goal to his team-mate.
He added: “I don’t know. He celebrated like it was his goal so I expect he touched it. I’ll take the assist. That’s fine. Of course [you have to take his word for it], but on the camera we will see if it’s true or not. I think it is.”
