The Tottenham Hotspur striker has won the Golden Boot in each of the past 2 seasons and is now aiming to become the first player since Thierry Henry to make it a hat-trick.
The 24-year-old trails Salah by 5 goals, which he hopes to see reduced to 4 when the dubious goals committee run the rule over Tottenham’s second goal against Stoke City at the weekend – the Englishman appearing to get the slightest of touches to Christian Eriksen’s cross.
Speaking to reporters after Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 win at the bet365 Stadium, Kane told reporters: “I swear on my daughter’s life that I touched the ball, but there’s nothing I can do.
“If they turn it around, they turn it around. If they take my word, they take my word. It is what it is – the most important thing is that we won the game.
“I still believe I can [catch Salah]. There are still games to go. I’ve got to focus on my game. I can’t control what he does. Obviously as a striker, it would be great to win the Golden Boot again and I will keep working hard from now until the end of the season.”
Kane has 6 games remaining to beat Salah, whose team have only 5 matches left to play.
