Harry Kane credits Mohamed Salah for role in Liverpool’s win over Tottenham Hotspur

In six of the last seven Premier League seasons, at least one of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane and Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah have won the Golden Boot.

They are not in the race as of now. Erling Haaland has 18 goals already while Kane has half that amount and Salah has one-third of the Manchester City star’s tally in the league so far.

Both Salah and Kane were on the scoresheet at the Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday (6 November). Salah opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a well-taken volley inside the box.

Salah controlled a simple pass from Darwin Nunez and hit it quickly and with precision past a stranded Hugo Lloris. Eric Dier then played a weak header back to his goalkeeper, which was intercepted by the Egypt international.

He then hit a delicious chip over the Frenchman. Kane then got one back for us after substitute Dejan Kulusevski played him in behind Liverpool’s defence in the 70th minute.

The England international’s finish was mesmerising as it beat Alisson Becker – one of the best goalkeepers in the world – from a tight angle. It was unstoppable.

From one clinical finisher to another, Kane credited Salah’s goals for being the difference between the two sides. Speaking after the game in his post-match interview with Sky Sports (h/t the BBC):

“We need to be better at controlling games and we have to look back at this game but I don’t think it was terrible, we just got punished with two clinical goals.”

Can’t argue with Kane’s comments there. Spurs had so many chances to score throughout the game but they only took one. The good thing from this game, according to manager Antonio Conte himself, is the performance and how positive Spurs were against a world-class opposition.
