    Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane believes his battle for the Premier League Golden Boot with Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah is ‘healthy’, but warned he is getting better with age.

    The Egyptian secured the personal accolade on the final day with a goal against Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield to leave him on 32 goals as opposed to Kane’s 30.

    Despite scoring a brace against Leicester City on the final day, the England international feels as though the personal battle between the pair is healthy.

    He said: “When you’re playing at this level there’s always going to be players at the top and it’s been great competition.

    “He’s done fantastic this year and yeah, he’s won the Golden Boot.

    “For me, it’s good competition and I’m excited to go again next year.”

    Kane missed a lot of the season through an ankle injury he sustained against Bournemouth – but still managed to beat his tally of 29 Premier League goals from last season.

    And when asked if he thought he was still getting better with age, he had an ominous warning for Premier League defenders everywhere.

    “I think so,” he added.

    “I think if you look at the goals and the way I’m playing – I definitely feel better.

    “There’s always room for improvement but every year I’m getting more physical and more experienced and I’m using that on the pitch.”
