Tottenham legend Graham Roberts has taken a swipe at Liverpool fans after Harry Kane was awarded the second of his side’s goals against Stoke on Saturday after an appeal.
The Premier League confirmed on Wednesday that Kane, 24, was successful in his appeal to the Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel, meaning that he has now 25 goals in the competition as the race for the golden boot begins to hot up.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah currently leads the goalscoring charts with 29 strikes in England’s top-flight after a brilliant debut season at Anfield.
After the decision was made, Spurs hero Roberts aimed a dig at Liverpool fans for not moaning so much about Manchester City’s disallowed goal against them in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Leroy Sane had a goal ruled out for being judged to be in an offside position, however replays showed that it was Reds ace James Milner who touched the ball on to him.
“Funny Liverpool fans not appealing last nights offside city goals that should have stood,” said Roberts on his personal Twitter account.

Football Insider verdict
The battle for the golden boot is now becoming the most interesting thing at the top end of the Premier League. Manchester City should win the title this weekend while the top four also look set to finish as they are. That means attention has been turned elsewhere and that is the battle between Salah and Kane to finish out as top scorer. Salah has a four-goal advantage over Kane after the Premier League awarded him that goal against Stoke, and there’s sure to be uproar from Merseyside should the England international win the golden boot by one goal.
