EPL: Salah desperate to beat Kane to Golden Boot award

Liverpool winger, Mohammed Salah, has admitted he is focused on winning the Golden Boot.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the Egyptian also said he had something to prove in the Premier League, after “not getting a chance” at Chelsea.

Salah has 30 goals in the Premier League this season, four more than Tottenham’s Harry Kane, with four games of the campaign remaining.

He is one goal away from equalling a 38-game Premier League record held by Alan Shearer (95/96), Cristiano Ronaldo (07/08) and Luis Suarez (13/14).

“As you can see last couple of games, the players are trying to help me a lot now to score goals, because they know now I am in for the Golden Boot. In the end it is an individual award, but it also helps the team gets the points.

“The way we play is very good, and you can see the fans are very happy and I feel very good about that, I feel they want me to win something.

“It’s the last four games, so it’s very clear, I play for it. In the beginning I played for it, but it’s always for the team. I want to score for the team.

“But before, when I was second to Kane, I had a chance to score, I gave it to Bobby [Roberto Firmino] and he scored, I play football for football not just to think about myself. I give assists, I create chances, because I can’t forget my position. I play still on the wing, not No 9. I play for the team and everyone can see that.

“Honestly as you can see, I have had a great season and still some games to go. For anyone the most important thing is to play good, to perform good, to score goals for your team. I am happy in the city, for the club and for myself for sure. It means a lot,” he told Sky Sports.
