Premier League! Harry Kane Confident Of Catching Salah To Win Golden Boot
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane says he is confident he can eclipse Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah to win the Premier League golden boot.
The England forward has scored 24 times this term but trails Egypt international Salah by five goals.
Kane, 24, is bidding to become the first player since Thierry Henry to finish as the Premier League top scorer for a third consecutive season.
“I still believe I can. There are still games to go,” Kane said.
“I’ve got to focus on my game. I can’t control what he does.
“Obviously as a striker, it would be great to win the golden boot again and I will keep working hard from now until the end of the season.”
Kane has returned to full fitness following an ankle injury while Salah, 25, missed the Merseyside derby on Saturday after suffering a groin problem during Liverpool’s victory over Manchester City on Wednesday.
Kane’s objective is also helped by the fact that Spurs have six top-flight games remaining, while the Reds only have five.
