Mohamed Salah faces a fight to secure his third Premier League Golden Boot with Heung-Min Son breathing down his neck as we enter the final week of the season.
The South Korean has scored 21 goals this season, just one behind Salah for the Golden Boot, and could seal a first Golden Boot with Salah an injury doubt for Liverpool’s home fixture against Wolves.
Harry Kane scored Tottenham last two penalties and has been Tottenham’s penalty taker, with Son even admitting how confident he feels when his teammate steps up to the spot. “I see only the net,” the 29-year-old admitted.
“He’s the only one…the best of the penalty takers. You could trust him at any moment, 60 minutes, 96, in the last seconds, you can trust him easily.
“You know where the ball goes, even the goalkeeper knows, but he puts it in the corner. I don’t feel any pressure. Harry probably does, but I don’t when he shoots,” Son added.
However, in an event held by Masters Football, Sheringham explained he had asked Kane if he would step aside to give Son a penalty to win the Golden Boot on Sunday if they had one.
“Harry came and spoke to us after the game [a 1-0 win over Burnley], and I put a question to Harry that if we’re [Spurs] beating Norwich two or three-nil, if the game is already won and there’s another penalty, would you let Sonny have it so he could go for the Golden Boot?
“He just laughed, and he said, ‘let’s win the game first, let’s get in that position.”
Sheringham added: “He’s a goal scorer, he didn’t want to hand over a penalty straight away.”
Spurs travel to the relegated Canaries on Sunday needing a point to confirm top four ahead of Arsenal, along with a six straight finish above their local rivals.
