Mauricio Pochettino says Harry Kane will learn from the fallout of the decision to award the striker Tottenham's second goal at Stoke City ahead of teammate Christian Eriksen. "But it's not a big issue, not a big deal for the team". "Of course after the match Harry said he touched the ball with his right shoulder", Pochettino told reporters on Thursday.
'Harry could be very trustworthy individual and naturally he isn't going to lie about this case, ' Pochettino mentioned. Minutes after the panel's decision was announced the Egyptian took to Twitter to apparently express his surprise.
"For me, always Kyle will be a player that did a lot for the club, did a lot for us in three years - and of course the club did a lot for him and we did many things for him".
Tottenham are unbeaten in the league since a 4-1 defeat by City at the Etihad in December.
"It's been a sticky patch for them but they have been flawless this season".
While City will be keen to get the title wrapped up as soon as possible, Spurs have their eye on a strong finish to the campaign as they target second place.More news: Klopp: Liverpool doing everything to get Mohamed Salah fit for Everton clash

We need to be consistent during the whole season and be the best team, like Manchester City is doing today.
As Spurs fans, if we're honest with ourselves this is just a tad cringe-worthy, but that mostly comes down to Kane's public comments ahead of the appeal.
"Of course the fans feel disappointed that he made a decision to move to City", the Tottenham manager said.
