Harry Kane has revealed he is keen to win the Premier League Golden Boot this season.
The England international was the highest goalscorer in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 season but wasn’t able to seal a hat-trick as Mo Salah won the award last term.
He also won the World Cup Golden Boot in Russia during the summer, beating the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezmann to the accolade.
However, the England captain is ready to battle with Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the trophy this season.
“When you’ve done it on the biggest stage of them all, the World Cup, you can look back and gain confidence from that,” he was quoted saying by the Mirror.
“Since I’ve been in the Premier League, it has had some of the best strikers in the world.
“Aubameyang is at the top end at the moment. There’s quite a few on eight or nine goals, so it’s important for me to carry on doing what I’m doing. There’s still a lot of the season to go, but I’m happy with where I am.”
He added: “When you set a standard year after year then maybe people aren’t so surprised when you score goals. If you score one goal then maybe people are expecting you to score two or three.
“I’m happy with where I’m at, I’ve been on good form. This is the sort of period I like where you get into a rhythm, get into a routine, so that helps.”
