Harry Kane blanks: Mohamed Salah's top scorer odds slashed

Harry Kane blanks: Mohamed Salah's top scorer odds slashed

That barely does his 30th league goal of the season justice, for Salah still had to apply the right amount of power and precision to get the ball above and beyond a 6ft 5in goalkeeper.

The 'shoulder goal' against Stoke last weekend.

Asked whether he would prefer to win the Champions League or an individual honour like the golden boot, Salah replied: "If you had a choice between the Champions League and (individual honours like the golden boot) then of course the Champions League".

The Egypt international's relentless form in Liverpool's front line means Philippe Coutinho has not been missed since his January move to Barcelona.

Liverpool closed the gap on second-placed Manchester United to a single point by beating Bournemouth.

"Congratulations to Harry Kane for the upcoming baby", a Twitter user wrote alongside a photo of himself and his pregnant partner.

And after the win over Bournemouth at Anfield, Henderson took the opportunity to fire another shot at his England teammate.

"I am happy to have this feeling".

Kane currently trails Salah by five goals with five league games left to play, and will hope to decrease the deficit against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday (AEST). Their second-half performance lacked intensity at times, but Salah's goal sealed the result before Roberto Firmino made it three late on. "Harry Kane has decided to go one better and he's started scoring ' No Touch ' goals", another person wrote.

'I think you can never keep Harry away, he's always going to score goals, he can come up with hat-tricks, he's got great finishing.

Roma joined in on the fun too on Twitter as their English Twitter accounted shared a video of Edin Dzeko scoring a goal but the commentator mentioning Kane's name. "He is going to learn a lot from this", Pochettino said.
