Harry Kane new favourite to beat Mohamed Salah to the Golden Boot award after drawing level on goals with Liverpool star

HARRY KANE is favourite to beat Mohamed Salah to the 2020-21 Golden Boot, according to bookmakers Betfair.

The Tottenham talisman, 27, drew level with his Liverpool counterpart yesterday when firing in a penalty against Aston Villa.


The pair are now neck-and-neck on 17 Premier League goals each with just nine games of the campaign remaining.

Kane has provided 13 assists to Salah's three – but unlike the World Cup – assists are NOT taken into account.

Instead, if the pair end the season level then the award will be shared.

And that's something Salah understands better than most.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the Egyptian superstar shared the award with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Anfield colleague Sadio Mane.

Premier League Golden Boot winner odds – Betfair

  • Harry Kane – 6/5
  • Mohamed Salah – 7/4
  • Bruno Fernandes – 6/1
  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 16/1
  • Patrick Bamford – 25/1

Bookmakers Betfair have priced Kane at 6/5 to collect his THIRD Golden Boot having won the honour in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

He's narrowly ahead of treble-chasing Salah, who is available at 7/4.

The Liverpool ace had looked certain to win after notching up 13 goals before Christmas.

But he's only managed FOUR in his 15 appearances since that 7-0 drubbing of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes is the best of the rest at 6/1.

The Portuguese star has bagged an impressive 16 goals during his first full Premier League campaign and could spring a surprise.

Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin is offered at a double-figure 16/1.

The England star has registered 14 top-flight goals this season – surpassing last year's total of 13 with 10 games still left to play.

Leeds' Patrick Bamford is also on 14 goals for the campaign with Betfair pricing him at 25/1 to gazump the favourites.
