Tottenham fullback Ben Davies wary of Man City backlash

The Liverpool forward has scored 29 goals in a spectacular debut season with five games left

The Spurs manager did admit, however, that the strength of the public response - which include messages on social media from Mo Salah, Kane's rival for the Golden Boot - had caught the striker by surprise.

Pochettino, speaking at the club's training ground, said: "After the game, Harry said, "I touched the ball with my right shoulder". He told Christian. Harry's a very honest person, he's not going to lie about this situation. It is not a big issue, it is not a big deal for the team. To them, Kane wanting to take credit for a goal he rightfully scored is a direct affront to their lord and savior Mo Salah.

"I care about the three points but it was a club decision to appeal". I must sound like a broken record but he's the player who makes us tick. I wasn't involved in this decision.

"It's going to be a tough game, of course, but we've got to be ready".

Tottenham are on a 14-match unbeaten run in the Premier League going back to December when they were beaten by this Saturday's opponents Manchester City.

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.




No. United closed the gap by three points, meaning City need another two victories to be certain, although it also depends on United.

Pochettino does not think that beating City would prove they can compete for future titles.

"We show character and ambition because there is still second place to play for and we will try our best to finish as high as we can in the table".

City could have wrapped up the title with a win at home to Manchester United last Saturday but threw away a two-goal lead to suffer their first home loss of the campaign, falling 3-2 to Jose Mourinho's side.

Left-back Danny Rose will miss the 7.45pm kick-off on Saturday night due to a minor calf problem.
