Two seasons Premier League Golden boot winner, Harry Kane and New comer Mohamed Salah are in the race to win the top scorer this campaign. Several football predictions can’t even point who will finish leading the table by the end of the season.
The England International has laid songs of praises on Liverpool summer signing, Salah according to Sky Sports.
Kane claims that the Egyptian is having a remarkable season, and that he will the taking pleasure in challenging the current top scorer winger for the Premier League Golden boot award.
Salah joined the Merseyside’s last summer, in a reported fee of €42 million which could further rise up to €50 million from Italian side AS Roma. And the Egyptian winger performances this season has seen him found the back of the 29 times and further provided nine assists, while Kane has only been able to score 25 goals with two assists in the English Top Flight this season.
“We will see,” Kane told Sky Sports when asked if he can catch Salah. “He has done great, he has had an amazing season and has gone ahead, so we will see.
“Because we are battling against Liverpool for the top four as well it’s a bit of excitement. He scores four, let’s see what I can come back with.
“Whatever happens at the end of the season both of us will have had good seasons and we both enjoy it. It’s just the competition and trying to win, that’s what I enjoy.”
The Spurs forward has been the League top scorers for the past two seasons and will just be desperate to make it three times in a row, which will be difficult to claim as the Liverpool winger being in his personal best form of his career leading the top scorer race with 4 goals ahead.
Salah has been breaking record this season as he is the first Liverpool player to reach the 39 goals in a season, surpassing the former record of Robbie Fowler of 36 goals during the 1995-96 campaign.
He also beat the record of Fernando Torres 33 goals in a debut season, with his 39 goals mark. However, with some matches left in the Premier League, the Egyptian has been tipped to pass the 35-goal mark in the League.
“The tackle was nice, eh?” – Mauricio Pochettino hails Eric Dier’s incredible tackle on Sergio Ramos
The Lilywhites have been brilliant under the manager since he took over from Southampton. We are now regulars for a top-four spot and lie a couple of points behind the Premier League leaders after eight games.
Pochettino was quoted by the Guardian as saying:
“The tackle was nice, eh?
“He touched the ball. In England, that’s never a foul. In Europe, it’s different. But to be brave like this – look, Dier is a holding midfielder and he was pressing Sergio Ramos in the penalty area.
“That is the mentality that, from day one at Spurs, we have tried to translate to the players. I feel proud about that. It’s a fantastic attitude, one that we always need to keep pushing.”
Dier did get booked for that challenge in Seville but it set the tone for the rest of the game. The manager also spoke about the significance of moments such as the one from Dier.
“The signal that you send to your opponents is important.
“To say: ‘We are not scared of you. We come here and we want to beat you.’
“We can play good or bad but always it’s about the attitude. With different attitudes, sure, the game would be completely different and have different results. With only talent you cannot beat any team. But talent with attitude is everything.”
Tottenham have made a decent start in the league and hopefully, we will be able to carry the same form for the rest of the season.
We have lost both our games in the Champions League so far, and face a couple of crucial ties against PSV Eindhoven next.
“I had friends that chose a criminal life” – Tottenham star opens up about how football saved him
The former Paris Saint-Germain star has found his feet in England, after a tough six months last season, and claimed a number of his friends went down the “bad way.”
Moura was speaking to the Evening Standard and was quoted saying:
“It was very difficult when I was young because there are problems with violence, gangs, guns, drugs – a criminal life.
“I had friends that choose a criminal life. Some of them are in prison and some of them are dead. They chose the bad way.
“I played a lot of football in the street. My dream was to become a footballer – that’s why I didn’t go to the bad way. I always believed I could realise my dream and give another life to my family.”
Moura added that his parents sent him down the right path and that he always wanted to be a footballer and nothing else.
The Brazilian’s form this season saw him earn a recall to the national side. Moura has three goals from eight Premier League games and has been one of the more consistent players for Tottenham.
The 26-year-old was used sparingly by Mauricio Pochettino after joining us in January but believes he can get better.
“The first five months was to adapt to the new life, the new championship, the new coach, a new country, a new club.
“Now I’ve done a pre-season with the team and I understand what the coach expects from me. Here the game is so dynamic, the intensity is so high. I hope I’m a little far from my best. I’m playing well but can do better.”
The Brazilian hasn’t hit the levels that he did during his first few years with PSG but working with Pochettino should help him reach his potential.
The season is only a few games in and hopefully, we will see the best of Moura in the coming months.
“He is quick, smart and he can score” – Tottenham star warns his team of West Ham star’s quality
Toby Alderweireld has warned Tottenham of Marko Arnautovic’s quality ahead of the derby against West Ham on Saturday.
Tottenham have a couple of big games after the game against the Hammers as we play PSV in the Champions League and face Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Belgian was quoted by the Evening Standard as he wanted the side to be at their best:
“Arnautovic is a very good, player. He is quick, smart, strong and he can score. He’s an all-round player so we have to be at our top level to beat them.
“It’s a derby and it’s always difficult there.”
Arnautovic has been brilliant for West Ham and scored in their win over Manchester United recently. The 29-year-old has four goals and an assist in the Premier League from seven games and will be a threat against us.
Tottenham also have to be wary of a few others at West Ham. Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko can be deadly on their day, and it will be important for us to keep them in check on Saturday.
Spurs might have lost a couple of games this season in the Premier League but we aren’t that far away from the top of the table.
We lie just a couple of points behind the league-leading trio and hopefully, a win over the Hammers can take us to the top of the table on Saturday.
