Spurs hope to delay City's title

Mauricio Pochettino said that he was not even aware that Tottenham Hotspur had appealed to the Premier League for their second goal against Stoke City on Saturday to be re-assigned to Harry Kane and not Christian Eriksen.

Tottenham, although seeming to be keen, will have to convince the Blues to sell a player to a Premier League rival and city rival rather than a club in another one of Europe's top leagues.

"But that was a club decision to appeal".

"Harry is disappointed because he never wanted to create this [imbroglio]", said the Spurs boss. Sometimes it can seem a simple thing, and then it becomes big and you can't stop it. That was what happened. "People have opinions but that is normal".

Pep Guardiola's men have lost their last three games, going out of the Champions League while also missing the chance to wrap up the Premier League title by throwing away a 2-0 lead to go down 3-2 to Manchester United. To them, Kane wanting to take credit for a goal he rightfully scored is a direct affront to their lord and savior Mo Salah.

Pochettino laughed off the suggestion that Salah will now have added motivation to end Kane's hopes of being the first player to win three consecutive Golden Boots since Thierry Henry from 2003 to 2006.

"For me, it's a deal between them and if the club believes it was right to appeal, there's nothing to say for me". "I respect all of their opinions". For me I don't care who scores the goal, I care about the three points.

"We didn't talk about it. We need to show ourselves that we can compete".

"I think the fans love him - disappointed in the moment that he left - but he deserves a good reception from the fans". Why would I be? "After the game Harry said he touched the ball with a shoulder, he told Christian".

'Harry could be very trustworthy individual and naturally he isn't going to lie about this case, ' Pochettino mentioned. "We create a massive issue when it is not an issue".
