Spurs' Harry Kane can't make Golden Boot his main focus - Dele Alli

The opportunity was there for Kane to add to his tally of 25 Premier League goals and catch Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot, and in turn get people talking about an actual goal he scored rather than his embarrassingly successful goal claim recently to the Premier League.

After Christian Eriksen's free-kick found the back of the net in a 2-1 win away to Stoke City last weekend, the goal was officially awarded to Kane midweek after the league's Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel adjudged Kane to have taken the final touch.

The finish puts him on 30 league goals, five more than Kane, who play against Manchester City later on Saturday.

"After the game Harry said he touched the ball with a shoulder, he told Christian". Previous year against Lukaku it was a tough competition and he finished the season really strongly.

Harry Kane wants that Golden Boot.

"(Salah) told me he's going to claim all of them", Henderson told BT Sport after the Egypt global scored his 30th league goal of the campaign. "Now we still have four (Premier League) games and they have five or six games so I have to think about my games and we see".

Mo Salah scored as Liverpool routed a Bournemouth 3-0 on Saturday and Henderson could not help a cheeky little dig at his England colleague.

That expertly edited footage, which shows a goal-scoring Roma player with Kane's head, of course comes with a reference to Liverpool's Mohamed Salah - a former Roma player.

"I am happy to have this feeling, you know". "But playing with him every day in training I can see how hard he works, he wants goals, he's a striker, every striker wants goals, so he has just got to ignore it and focus on himself which I am sure he will do, he is an unbelievable player and he is a great person as well".
