Salah hits 40 goals with header (insert Harry Kane joke here)

Salah and Kane

Jose Mourinho's men can increase that to four though if they beat West Brom at Old Trafford tomorrow.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, who now leads the race for the Golden Boot, expressed his disbelief over the decision on Twitter - as did a number of other footballers including Virgil van Dijk and Jamie Vardy.

Salah, Kane's Golden Boot rival, had scored his team's second goal at Anfield - Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were responsible for the other two.

The England striker was adamant he had to get the credit for the strike and managed to get the Premier League's goal accreditation appeals panel to award it in his favour.

Hot on the heels of Jordan Henderson suggesting Mo Salah might try and claim all three of Liverpool's goals against Bournemouth on Saturday evening, up popped James Milner.

And while you'd think Roma would have been too busy celebrating their sensational victory over Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals to be paying attention to the Kane controversy, you would be wrong.

He said: "Of course after the game, Harry said, "I touched the ball with my right shoulder".

Previous year against (Romelu) Lukaku it was a tough competition and he finished the season really strongly with the amount of goals he scored.

"That is so important but the ambition is to win titles and one day the Premier League or Champions League".

Tottenham fans took to Twitter to criticise Harry Kane for his performance, or lack thereof, against Manchester City on Saturday.

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

Two-time reigning Golden Boot victor Kane has been criticised after he was awarded Tottenham's second goal from their 2-1 victory over lowly Stoke City in the Premier League last week.

Kane was given the goal by the Premier League on Thursday after it was originally awarded to Christian Eriksen, taking his tally to 25 goals and keeping him in the race for a third successive Golden Boot.

'He's a big player, so hopefully he can keep scoring for us.
