Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane confident he can still win the Premier League Golden Boot


Tottenham forward Harry Kane continued his quietly impressive start to the new season with another goal at Brighton on Saturday and declared there is a “long way to go” in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

The England captain converted Son Heung-min’s cross in the 22nd minute to help Spurs end a difficult week, where they learned fitness coach Gian Piero Ventrone had died at the age of 61, with a 1-0 victory on the south coast.

It was Kane’s eighth goal in the Premier League this season but his exploits have been barely mentioned given Erling Haaland’s incredible start to life at Manchester City.

Haaland hit the 15-goal mark in the top flight on Saturday with another effort against Southampton, but his rival at Tottenham is not prepared to concede defeat so early into the new campaign.

“There is a long way to go. Obviously some top players in the league but I’m feeling good, so it is nice to keep getting on the scoresheet, especially important goals to help the team win,” Kane said.

“A lot of games coming thick and fast, Champions League again in midweek (against Frankfurt), so we’ve got to recover well and the whole squad has to be ready to play so yeah we’ve got to keep battling out the games.”

Kane was brought off late on at Brighton, only the second time this season he has failed to finish a game, but the 29-year-old insisted everything was fine after taking a blow to his ankle earlier in the hard-fought victory.

He told Sky Sports: “Yeah, just a knock I think. A sore one but definitely worth it when you win the game.”
