Tottenham's Harry Kane still chasing Mohamed Salah in race for Golden Boot

Tottenham striker Harry Kane hasn't given up hope of catching Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

Kane is three goals behind Salah (31) on 28 as Sunday's matches see Tottenham take on Leicester and Liverpool face
Brighton. The 24-year-old has won the Golden Boot in the past two campaigns and is hoping to push his rival all the way.
"The Golden Boot is still there, but who knows? Getting 30 goals is definitely the aim," he told reporters. "I always try to improve every year and it was 29 last year so to reach that 30-mark and to keep doing it on a consistent level is important.
"It is good that the pressure is off on Sunday so hopefully we can go and play free and score a few goals. We'll try to do the same as last year."
Kane also said he hopes he can take some form into the World Cup with England.
"It helps I'm scoring again. As a striker you just go through spells through the season," he said. "Sometimes everything you touch turns to gold and you are scoring goals, sometimes you have to wait on one or two chances.
"Against Newcastle on Wednesday, I had a couple of chances and took one of them well, which was nice.
"Hopefully I can get into a rhythm in the friendlies with England and take that into the World Cup. That is what I will try to do anyway."
