Salah: I want to beat Kane
So how important is it for Salah to beat Kane to be the Premier League top scorer?
The Egyptian has spoken to the press following the Bournemouth game to discuss what being the Premier League’s top marksman would mean:
Of course it is in my mind. Of course I cannot lie – it is in my mind.
But you know, you can see (on Saturday) with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me.
I am also sure that Tottenham’s players try to help Harry Kane, and also Manchester City’s try to help Sergio Aguero. It’s like that, but in the end we play as a team.
Do I want my team-mates to pass the ball more? Yes, but they pass the ball anyway!
Now we still have four (Premier League) games and they have five or six games so I have to think about my games and we see.
