Pochettino proud of Spurs performances against Juventus and Real Madrid

Harry Kane added to his goal tally this season with the slightest of touches to direct Christian Eriksen's free-kick home for a 2-1 win against Stoke.

The England global striker appealed to the Premier League after the goal was initially awarded to Spurs team-mate Christian Eriksen, though the decision was overturned by the league's Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel. "It's been disappointing because clearly Christian stuck the ball in, I've chested it, flicked it over the defender's head and then chipped the keeper ..."

Salah tops the scoring charts with 29 strikes to his name, while Kane is now four behind the Egyptian. Averaging 4.42 shots per 90, the Egyptian has a conversion rate of 23.77% so far meaning his scoring a couple of times every full game he plays.

"For me, I don't care who scores the goals".

"We are in the race for top four and that for Tottenham is a massive achievement to finish in the top four for the third season in a row", said Pochettino on Thursday.

Kane "scores" at Stoke.

Both players are on course to smash Luis Suarez's record of most goals in a single Premier League season (31 goals). The other tactic that the Cityzens can think of using is man-marking Harry Kane and not give him space in the box. "You can improve a little bit, a small percentage, but it's not a thing you're going to buy at the market".

"The next game is Tottenham because the schedule is what it is - it doesn't matter whether it's a top, top team".

In 2016 a goal was awarded to Philippe Coutinho as Liverpool beat Everton, but Sturridge claimed it deflected off him on the way in.

Just two of those matches have yielded a goal, as he found a way through in 4-1 and 2-1 victories for his side two seasons ago.

His most memorable performances have come in bigger games, with his two goals helping sink Chelsea earlier this month.

With both Liverpool and Tottenham pushing to secure their place in the top four, both Salah and Kane will need to be on form to keep their teams' runs going.

They were eliminated from the Champions League a few weeks back but are in the FA Cup semi-finals where they face Manchester United.

City can not win the title at Wembley but know a win would put them within two points of doing so.
