Harry Kane has always been hungry for goals, as every good striker is, and he’s not giving up on letting this one go by the look of it.

The England forward is five goals behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in the race to be the Premier League’s top scorer, so when he thought he’d scored against Stoke it would have felt particularly sweet.

However, the effort was taken off him later on and given to Christian Eriksen, after the 24-year-old was deemed not to have touched the Danish midfielder’s free-kick.

The striker first attempted to get Alan Shearer onside, before appealing to Frank Lampard and Danny Murphy for their support.

Does anybody know how Eriksen feels about this? Let the man have his goals…
