However, the Englishman appealed the decision and now the Premier League have announced Kane has been awarded the goal - his 25th of the season.

Spurs are obviously eager for Kane to claim a hat-trick of Golden Boot awards because they appealed to the Premier League, who'd initially given the goal to Eriksen, to attribute it to the English striker.

Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen was awarded the goal during the 2-1 win at the bet365 Stadium, with his free-kick beating Jack Butland.

Mo Salah has expressed his shock at Harry Kane being retrospectively awarded a goal in opposition to Stoke as a result of the Liverpool striker tweeted: 'Wooooooow really?' "I don't care, it's my goal", Kane told Sky Sports News after the match.

Kane claimed Tottenham's victor in Saturday's 2-1 victory at Stoke City but the goal was awarded to Christian Eriksen, whose free kick was adjudged to have gone straight past keeper Jack Butland without being touched by the England forward.

Boehner said his perspective shifted after he saw the plant's efficacy in helping a close friend deal with debilitating back pain. He said "you begin to really scratch your head" when looking at how many people are in prison for marijuana possession.

The Londoners are now placed fourth in the league table with 67 points, level on with Liverpool, though they have one game in hand.

"I still believe I can", Kane said. "If they take my word, they take my word".

Currently, Salah leads the Golden Boot race with 29 goals while Kane is now four behind on 25.

Salah has scored 39 goals for Liverpool in all competitions this season, to Kane's 35 for Spurs - a run all the more remarkable for it being the Egypt international's first campaign at Anfield.
