Tottenham star Son Heung-min has huge Golden Boot chance after Mohamed Salah admission


Son has been in remarkable form in recent weeks and had bagged an incredible 10 goals in his last eight top flight matches ahead of Spurs’ clash with Burnley this afternoon. And that has taken his season tally to 21 league goals.

Son’s fecund spell in front of goal means he is now just one strike behind Salah in the race to win this season’s Golden Boot, despite the fact the Egypt international had scored 15 times before Christmas.

Salah’s goalscoring endeavours have receded since the turn of the year and his chances of winning the individual accolade took a hit this weekend after he was forced off during Liverpool’s FA Cup final victory over Chelsea. The 29-year-old went down next to the centre-circle just after the half-hour mark of the Wembley showdown and was replaced by Diogo Jota.

And Son will be looking to take full advantage of Salah’s predicament. Spurs face Norwich in their final match of the season in a week’s time and the encounter could decide whether the north Londoners secure a top four finish. With so much potentially riding on the game, Antonio Conte’s men will be motivated to do the business.

And Son will therefore have two reasons to put in a top performance. The South Korea international has never won the Premier League Golden Boot and is unlikely to have a better chance to ever do it. And he could score a hatful against Norwich to cap his most productive season ever and thwart Salah at the 11th hour.
