Salah will win the Golden Boot

With 2019 only just underway and the Premier League’s title race starting to take shape, three of the world’s best strikers lead the charge for the prestigious Golden Boot. Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Tottenham’s Harry Kane have all scored 14 goals.

But with Arsenal in free-fall, and Manchester United piling on the pressure for Champions League football, it’s entirely possible that the Gabonese’s early-season form will drop off, allowing last-season’s front runners to battle it out yet again.

Mohamed Salah won the Puskas Award as well as last season’s Golden Boot, scoring a record 32 Premier League goals to trump Kane, who bagged 30. The Spurs hotshot more than made up for that disappointment when he fired England to a World Cup semi-final, bagging six finals goals to win the Golden Boot in Russia.

Kane prepares for England’s heartbreaking clash with Croatia











But will Kane’s World Cup glory come back to haunt him come May?

Kane has scored 122 goals in 177 goals for Spurs

Salah only played two games at Russia’s football showpiece, as well as missing out on both of Egypt’s ‘warm-up’ friendlies. Kane, however, played in six of the Three Lions’ seven games in Russia, as well as England’s warm-up against Nigeria. Kane has also been integral to England’s UEFA Nations League triumphs over the end of last year, playing in every fixture.

Salah’s early exit from the World Cup could prove a blessing in disguise

Liverpool have mounted a much more valid title charge this year, and it’s clear to see that Salah will be integral if the Reds are to win their first Premier League trophy. Kane, however, will be suffering from fatigue towards the end of the season after his heavy summer, and it looks likely that Tottenham’s title challenge is to evaporate after their crushing 1-0 loss at home to Manchester United.
