Harry Kane vows to help Heung-min Son beat self-proclaimed world’s best Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah is currently facing a stiff fight to secure his third Premier League Golden Boot as Tottenham’s cavalier Heung-Min Son breathes down his neck.

Although the Liverpool forward was quick out of the blocks and led the scoring charts for most of the season, he now faces a serious threat in the imperious orm of Spurs star Son – who is only a whisker behind the Reds’ striker as he bagged his 21st goal of the season in the 3-0 win over Arsenal.

With just two matches remaining, the stunning South Korean striker is in scintillating form to achieve his first ever top-flight Golden Boot.

Harry Kane – the previous reciplient of the prestigious award on two occasions – has vowed to help his team-mate Son nab this year’s prize, although he did caution restrain that the main mission is still primarily to secure the final top 4 spot as he stopped short of promising Son spot-kick duties during the club’s final game against Norwich.

“We’ll have to wait to see what happens,” Kane said.

“Sonny has been fantastic for us, another goal tonight, we’ve got another important game on Sunday that I’m sure he’ll be ready for.

“Hopefully we can win him the Golden Boot, that’ll be nice but of course, he knows and we know that the three points are the most important thing.”

Salah, meanwhile, seemed a tad self-righteous as he claimed that his goalscoring numbers are proof that he should be considered the best in the world in his position.

“If you compare me with any player in my position, not only in my team but in the world, you will find that I am the best,” Salah told BeIN Sports.

“I always focus on my work and do my best and my numbers are the best proof of my words.

“I like to always create a new challenge for me, to work in a different way and to make a difference and that is my duty.”
