2017-18 Premier League top goalscorer
After Saturday’s action in the Premier League, Liverpool only have five matches remaining while Tottenham have six to play.
Liverpool were held to a goalless draw at Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Mohamed Salah, the Premier League’s top scorer with 29 goals, missed the Everton match with a groin injury.
Tottenham, meanwhile, won 2-1 away at Stoke City.
Harry Kane made his first start for Spurs since his injury against Bournemouth. Yet Kane failed to get on the scoresheet against the Potters, even though he’s been insisted that he got a touch on the second Tottenham goal.
Harry Kane vs Mohamed Salah
On Monday, more quotes from Harry Kane are doing the rounds after the Stoke game.
Kane not only believes he can still overtake Liverpool’s Salah in the scoring charts. He’s still insisting that he should have been credited with the second Lillywhites goal at the Bet365 Stadium.
As reported on the BBC, Kane said:
I still believe I can. 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.
I swear on my daughter’s life that I touched the ball, but there’s nothing I can do.
If they turn it around, they turn it around. If they take my word, they take my word.
It’s worth remembering that Kane finished last season on fire scoring four against Leicester and three against Hull.
Spurs also have a ‘good’ run of fixtures until the end of the campaign as they take on teams including Brighton, Watford, Newcastle, West Brom and Leicester City.
Could Tottenham win all their matches until the end of the Premier League season?
