According to several British reports, Tottenham striker is set to miss out of any footballing action until May, which can be benefitial for Salah’s golden boot race.

During their 4-1 win against Bournemouth this weekend, Tottenham striker Harry Kane picked up an ankle injury after getting his right foot stuck under after a challenge from Asmir Begovic and is set to miss three months of football, according to the Mirror.

This injury could see him lose the golden boot race to star , as both players are currently joint top-scorers with 24 goals.

Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma as the most expensive African player of all time at the time and has shown his worth ever since. He already broke several club and Premier League records in a period of just seven months, for instance he became the player with most left-footed goals in a single league campaign (20).

He also equaled Togo’s Emmanuel Adebayor record as the second-highest scoring African in a single Premier League season (24), just five behind Ivory Coast legend Didier Drogba. He was also able to surpass Luis Suarez’s best goalscoring record with the Reds in a single season (30).

This weekend saw the Egyptian’s two main competitors for the golden boot award get injured which could help him earn the prestigious award. Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero picked up a knee injury in training, missing the match against Stoke after confirming doctors have told him that he’s two weeks.

Liverpool are fourth in the Premier League with 60 points, five behind second-placed Manchester United and their next game will be against tenth-placed Watford on Saturday.
