Pep Guardiola's side ended their three-game losing streak by outperforming Spurs at their temporary Wembley home.
And with Kane in a hard-fought battle with Mohamed Salah for the league's Golden Boot award, his Liverpool teammate Jordan Henderson could not help himself following the Reds' comprehensive 3-0 win over Bournemouth.
Considering Kane scored seven league goals in the final two games of last season, we shouldn't rule anything out just yet.
Alli said: "Harry is an unbelievable striker".
"In the end they said it's his (Kane's) goal so it's finished for me". I respect the people that disagree with Harry, who do not agree with Harry, with the people who were surprised about him claiming it was his goal or not. A year ago against Lukaku it was a tough competition and he finished the season really strongly. Harry Kane really wants that Golden Boot.
"But that can't be H's main focus this season. It's like that, but in the end we play as a team".
"He can come up with hat-tricks - he's got great finishing and [Sergio] Aguero is similar". We have just got to pick ourselves up and try and pick ourselves up as quick as we can. To win the Champions League is huge for everyone. "We have played very well, there are a lot of positives we can take, there are a lot of things to improve on, we know that".
After the Premier League announced that they would be awarding Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane a goal previously credited to Christian Eriksen, social media was inundated with memes pulling the Spurs frontman's leg and now master impersonator and comedian Darren Farley has waded into the debate in his inimitable style.
On Saturday against Bournemouth, Salah scored his 40th goal in all competitions with Liverpool's second against the Cherries.
"Everyone is different, I don't know how H is going to take it, but I think it gives some people a chance to put him down".
"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. If it was me and I touched the ball I would try and claim it as well!
