The rivalry between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur has been brewing this season.
Supporters of the Merseyside club were incensed by the diving shown by Dele Alli, as well as Harry Kane, during the clubs’ Premier League 2-2 draw at Anfield in February.
A battle has also been going on between Kane and Liverpool’s star attacker Mohamed Salah.
Both players are vying for the Premier League Golden Boot, with Tottenham’s hitman hoping to claim it for a third consecutive time.
As it stands, Salah is leading the charge with 29 goals to his name, while Kane, who dropped from the top spot due to a spell on the sidelines with injury, has 24.
The England international has made it clear that he wants to end the season as the league’s top scorer, and it seems that his club are fully behind him.
According to BBC Sport, Tottenham plan to launch an appeal with the hope of giving Christian Eriksen’s winner in Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Stoke City to Kane.
The 24-year-old claimed that he got a touch on the ball before it nestled into the back of the net.
With Kane’s fight with Salah for the Golden Boot hots up, Liverpool fans have taken to social media to give their take on Spurs’ reported appeal.
