Kane determined to beat Salah to Premier League Golden Boot

Harry Kane is determined to beat Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot.

The Tottenham striker has won the last two awards for finishing as the league’s highest goalscorer, having scored 25 in 2015/16 and 29 in 2016/17. The England international already has 24 this season with seven games still to play, but is five goals behind Liverpool’s Mo Salah who netted his 29th goal of the season at he weekend against Crystal Palace.

However, despite the deficit to the Egyptian, Kane is determined to win his third consecutive Golden Boot.

“Salah’s done fantastic, he’s a great great player. Yeah, it’s competition. I had the same last year,” said the Spurs striker.

“For me, I’ve got to focus on my own game and my own team, and we’ll see what happens come the end of the season.

“He’s obviously got a bit of a head start now, and we’ll see what happens. I can’t control what he does, so I’ve just got to make sure I prepare well for games and just be ready.”

Kane returned to action on Sunday afternoon as a second half substitute against Chelsea. He had been expected to miss at least another fortnight following the injury he’d picked up at Bournemouth last month, but returned ahead of schedule.
