Harry Kane now five goals behind Liverpool forward Salah, with six games left to play
The Tottenham forward Harry Kane is a very confident man has he holds steadfast on his notion of beating Liverpool’s forward Muhammed Salah to the Premier Leagues Golden Boot regardless being 5 goals down from Salah.
As it’s been said ‘the third time is a charm’ and so it will be if Kane makes it to the Golden Boot at the end of the tournament making it Kane’s third successive season as the highest goal scorer, a record that hasn’t been broken since Thierry Henry did it between 2003 and 2006. Still on the part of record breaking in the European Premier League, Kane is even more dominant on succeeding as the crowned king of goals this season.
Regardless Harry missed out on league for a month due to the injury he doesn’t see Salah’s additional goals against Watford and Crystal Palace as a setback, just he intends adding to the 24 goals he already had scored.
The Spurs have 6 games left as the Reds have 5, knowing who his contender is he Kane remains determined of taking home the Golden Boot price.
“I still believe I can,” the England international said.
“Look, whatever happens, there are still games to go.
“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.”
Harry would have been a goal close to his course if only the goal counted for his team mate Christian Eriksen was counted onto him. The Premier League Match Centre thought otherwise has they awarded the goal to the Midfielder on Saturday. Kane was still adamant of his shoulder been used to support Eriksens free kick into the back of the net beating potters goalkeeper Jack Butland.
“I swear on my daughter’s life that I touched the ball, but there’s nothing I can do,” Kane argued.
“If they (the Premier League) turn it around, they turn it around. If they take my word, they take my word.
“It is what it is – the most important thing is that we won the game.”
Returning from injury it was feared Kane would still be sidelined in the season due to the ankle injury he sustained against Bournemouth but in place of that he ended up missing an FA Cup win against Swansea.
He had played his first 90 minutes since then at the weekend and he is rather confident his mini-break will go a long way for him even has it would reflect on positive grounds even in the world cup.
“It was good to get the minutes last week (against Chelsea) and the 90 minutes on Saturday,” Kane added.
“It’s all positive. The ankle feels fine. We’ve got a week now to train and I’ll get stronger and stronger.
“It happened similar last year and I came back strong and that’s what I’m aiming to do this summer and take that into the World Cup.
“I feel good at the moment and it’s important I stay fit and healthy and help the team.”
