Merson says Kane has advantage over Salah in Golden Boot race

Merson says Kane has advantage over Salah in Golden Boot race

Tottenham still have a game in hand on Liverpool, but with Kane five goals behind Salah it just doesn't look likely that he'll catch the Egyptian.

Manchester City ended their three-match losing run with a convincing win over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.

Roma's social media team always have their finger on the pulse... and tonight proved no exception as their Twitter account took a pop at Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Kane now trails Salah by five goals with five league games left to play, and will hope to decrease the deficit against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday (AEST).

"We have got a game in midweek against Brighton and our focus is on that and after that our focus will go to the FA Cup [semifinal against Manchester United on Saturday]. We need to show ourselves that we can compete".

That expertly edited footage, which shows a goal-scoring Roma player with Kane's head, of course comes with a reference to Liverpool's Mohamed Salah - a former Roma player.

The Reds face Roma in the Champions League semi-finals in two weeks' time, but the showing of solidarity was enough for one Liverpool fan to even suggest they would be happy to see the Italians win.

Mo Salah scored as Liverpool routed a Bournemouth 3-0 on Saturday and Henderson could not help a cheeky little dig at his England colleague.

Tottenham successfully lobbied the Football Association to have a Christian Eriksen goal credited to Harry Kane, who was publicly stumping very hard for the idea that he did in fact get the final touch on the goal in question. To be honest, he touched it so it's his goal and every striker would and should claim it if it is their goal.

"Do I want my team-mates to pass the ball more? He has just got to ignore what everyone else is saying, he knows how good he is and I am sure everyone else knows how good he is".
