Tottenham’s Harry Kane vs Mo Salah

Everyone knows that Man City are going to be crowned Premier League champions this season.

But one of the few remaining prizes in the league is who will be the top goalscorer.

After Saturday’s round of matches, Salah is level with Tottenham’s Harry Kane on 24 goals.

Kane failed to score as Spurs beat Huddersfield 2-0 at Wembley.
