Liverpool stars have been busy on social media this evening, seemingly responding to the news that Harry Kane has been awarded Tottenham’s second goal in their 2-1 win against Stoke City last weekend.
Mohamed Salah was the first to react, simply posting ‘Wooooooow really ?’, before Liverpool teammates Virgil van Dijk, Simon Mignolet, Georginio Wijnaldum and Trent Alexander-Arnold all questioned the decision in response to Salah’s post.
Current and former England strikers also gave their view, with Jamie Vardy, Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and Robbie Fowler all having a say on the decision.
Check out a selection of posts reacting to the news below…
Highly-rated teenager Reiss Nelson is hopeful he will sign a new contract at Arsenal in the coming weeks.
The 18-year-old has had brief flirtations with the Arsenal first team this season, culminating in his full Premier League debut in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton.
An England Under-19 international, Nelson featured in all of the Gunners’ Europa League group matches earlier in the campaign.
That competition is becoming increasingly important to manager Arsene Wenger as it presents the only chance to win silverware and the most probable way of returning to the Champions League given they are 13 points adrift from the top four in the Premier League.
The Frenchman has therefore started to rest key individuals before European fixtures, making seven changes for the game against Saints from the side that beat CSKA Moscow 4-1 in the first-leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie.
Nelson was one of the players to come into the side and, having achieved such a landmark, he is now keen to sign a new deal at the Emirates Stadium.
“It is a big achievement to sign for a big club like Arsenal so I’m just delighted with the contract and hopeful that I can sign it soon,” he said.
“I did set one target – to make my first-team debut. I have done that, I have had 15 appearances.
“A Premier League start was on the cards but I think I need to score, that is the only one I haven’t achieved so fingers crossed I can get a cheeky goal before the end of the season.
“I think a first-team start in the Premier League at a high level like this is always a step forward. I’ve just got to thank the boss and all my team-mates around me, pushing me and making me work harder and harder.”
Nelson admits he is enjoying the tutelage of working under Wenger and he could yet make up part of the squad which travels to Russia this week for the second leg against CSKA.
“He is one of the biggest (influences) for me, he keeps pushing the youngsters – me, Eddie (Nketiah) and Joe (Willock) – I think he has got a bight future planned for us,” added Nelson.
“We just have to keep training well and I think – with a boss like that – he is always going to push us and will give us first-team football when the opportunities arise.”
Tottenham have officially lodged an appeal with the Premier League to have their second goal against Stoke from Saturday’s 2-1 win awarded to striker Harry Kane.
Christian Eriksen was credited with the goal, his second of the match, but Kane insists the Dane’s free-kick grazed his shoulder before going in.
“I swear on my daughter’s life that I touched the ball,” the 24-year-old said, “but there’s nothing I can do.”
“If they turn it around, they turn it around. If they take my word, they take my word.
“It is what it is – the most important thing is that we won the game.”
Kane is locked in a battle with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah for the Golden Boot award.
If the league awards him the goal, he will be four behind Salah’s tally of 29.
