England international Harry Kane remains confident he can pip Salah to the English Premier League (EPL)’s Golden Boot.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker has scored 24 times in the league and he currently trails Egypt international Salah by five goals.
Kane, who recently returned from injury, believes that he can beat Liverpool FC forward Salah to the accolade.
“I still believe I can. Look, whatever happens, there are still games to go.
“I’ve got to focus on my game. I can’t control what he does,” Kane said on Sky Sports News.
Spurs and Liverpool are left with six, and five league games respectively.
“Obviously as a striker, it would be great to win the Golden Boot again,” he said.
“And I will keep working hard from now until the end of the season.”
Kane is bidding to finish the campaign as the EPL’s top scorer for a third successive season.
A feat no player has managed since Arsenal FC legend Thierry Henry did it between 2003 and 2006.
