The England global striker appealed to the Premier League after the goal was initially awarded to Spurs team-mate Christian Eriksen, though the decision was overturned by the league's Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel.
In that time Spurs have all-but booked their Champions League spot for a third successive season and they could pour more misery on a faltering City side.
He added: "Of course (the Golden Boot) is in my mind. I don't care about the rest".
Past year against (Romelu) Lukaku it was a tough competition and he finished the season really strongly with the amount of goals he scored.
"We are very happy, we wanted to win the league but it has been a hard season, there has been a lot of improvements in other teams".
It took his tally to 25 goals for the season, four behind Liverpool's Salah who, along with a number of other players, immediately appeared to question the decision on Twitter.
"Do I want my team-mates to pass the ball more?"
Ever since Harry Kane's appeal to have Tottenham's second goal from their game against Stoke awarded to him was successful, it's fair to say he's received some stick - and re-imagining other goals Kane might be looking to take credit for has become a running joke. "That can't be H's main focus, we are a team and we have got to play together and if he does it he does it and we will all be happy for him, but I don't think we are going to focus too much on it".
Speaking ahead of Tottenham's clash with champions-elect Manchester City on Saturday, Pochettino said: "Of course, he never thought that this situation would escalate, when he was so certain that he touched the ball".
