Merson says Kane has advantage over Salah in Golden Boot race

Jordan Henderson has praised "brilliant" Mohamed Salah after the Liverpool forward extended his lead as the Premier League's top goalscorer.

The England striker successfully appealed to have Christian Eriksen's goal against Stoke City reassigned to him, with the panel deciding he had got a touch on a free-kick.

He now has five games left to try and overhaul Mo Salah's tally and Alli is not writing his friend off, though says securing Champions League football next season is everyone's primary aim.

"I wouldn't put it past him to catch Salah", Alli said after Saturday's loss at Wembley Stadium.

I think Harry is a very honest person, he's not going to lie about this situation. Past year against (Romelu) Lukaku it was a tough competition and he finished the season really strongly with the amount of goals he scored.

One of them has gone viral after he spelled out rules for his girlfriend when she agreed to watch Avengers Infinity War with him. But as of Infinity War , he's at least running with the team - and he's sporting that Iron Spider suit to boot.

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's got to keep going and try to get as many as he can". "Now we still have four (Premier League) games and they have five or six games so I have to think about my games and we see".

"I care about the goal because it provided us the three points but all that happens after is more players' decisions or the club's decision", he added.

"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".

The finish was excellent, but no more impressive than the pass by Trent Alexander-Arnold, who's enjoying his best spell as a Liverpool player following two breakout performances against Manchester City in the Champions League.
