Harry Kane Awarded Goal Originally Given To Christian Eriksen Following Successful Appeal

Harry Kane has added to his tally for the season after being awarded a goal from last weekend’s win at Stoke that was originally seen as Christian Eriksen’s.

Harry Kane just cannot stop scoring this season, even when it isn’t immediately apparent that he has scored, it seems.

Last weekend, Tottenham picked up three points in the Premier League against Stoke City and while the scoreline on the day would have suggested that Christian Eriksen had scored a brace, after a three-man goal accreditation team saw it otherwise, they deemed that Eriksen’s free-kick had touched off Kane prior to hitting the back of the Stoke net.

Kane himself had made it clear what had transpired just after the match with him stating the following.

“I swear on my daughter’s life that I touched the ball, but there’s nothing I can do.

“If they turn it around, they turn it around. If they take my word, they take my word.

“It is what it is – the most important thing is that we won the game.” (via BBC Sport)

With this development, Kane’s total comes to 25, leaving him just four goals shy of the front-runner Mo Salah, who took to Twitter to voice his confusion at what is admittedly quite a strange turn of events, all things considered.

With just five or six games to go, the title may as well be in the hands of Manchester City but with Salah and Kane still vying for the honour of top-goalscorer, things could well get very interesting in this campaign’s final days.
