  • European football's elite club competition has reached the last four with the Reds chasing a sixth continental crown and the Blancos three in a row

I'm more than happy if Christian scores twice or Harry or Son or Dele Alli. It is not a big deal for the team.

Pochettino, who admitted it was not his decision to lodge the appeal, has insisted throughout the whole process that it was "not a big issue".

Kane's successful appeal of what initially appeared to be team-mate Eriksen's goal has been met with surprise, including from Salah. "Of course after the match Harry said he touched the ball with his right shoulder", Pochettino told reporters on Thursday. "I think he is going to learn a lot from this you know". I don't care who scored the goal, I care about the three points. Harry is generous, a person who always puts the collective ahead of himself.

Pep Guardiola's side left the chasing pack for dead early on in the season and, despite a defeat at Old Trafford last weekend, they still have a 13-point lead at the top of the table. "For me, it's a deal between them and if the club believes it was right to appeal, there's nothing to say for me".

"Of course he never thought that this situation was going to go on to such big things when he was so, so, so, so certain that he touched the ball", the Argentinian added.

'They deserve to be top, they were the most consistent team.

"It's normal that he was a little bit disappointed [by the response] because Harry and all our players have Twitter, Instagram and all those things and while Tottenham fans will have supported him, fans of other clubs will have killed him".

Tottenham now occupy fourth place with 67 points, 10 points ahead of nearest challengers Chelsea, and the ambitious London club are on course to bring Champions League soccer to their new stadium next season.
