James Milner follows Jordan Henderson in mocking Harry Kane's goal appeal

Kane's appeal generated criticism online, with Liverpool rival Mohamed Salah - who tops the goalscoring charts by four goals - among those to respond to the contentious decision.

Kane has been the subject of much talk over the past week after claiming Tottenham's second goal against Stoke City last weekend.

The Egyptian is now five goals ahead of Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot, after the Tottenham striker failed to even register a single shot against Manchester City.

Salah is now on 30 goals with 4 games left, while Kane has 25 goals and 5 games left. A year ago against Lukaku it was a tough competition and he finished the season really strongly.

But, with Christian Eriksen again on the scoresheet, it did not take long for jokes at Kane's expense to resurface on social media - including one from Arsenal's Hector Bellerin.

"He [Salah] told me he was gonna claim all of them [the goals]", Henderson told the BT after the game.

"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]".

The Reds took away all the points on Saturday afternoon as they comfortably dispatched a Bournemouth side who have only managed one win in their last six games.

Spurs star Kane has scored 25 goals in the Premier League so far this season, while Liverpool ace Salah has found the net 29 times in the league. "But playing with him every day in training I can see how hard he works, he wants goals, he's a striker, every striker wants goals, so he has just got to ignore it and focus on himself which I am sure he will do, he is an unbelievable player and he is a great person as well".

"I am happy to have this feeling, you know".

"Do I want my team-mates to pass the ball more?"

"Yeah he's a big player for us, so hopefully he keeps scoring for us".
