Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane plans on finishing above Mohamed Salah in the Premier League scoring charts to make it a hat-trick of Golden Boot successes.

Harry Kane has said that he is 'excited' by the prospect of climbing above Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah in the race to finish as the Premier League's top scorer.

The 24-year-old lags four goals behind his direct rival for the Golden Boot with six games left to play, having been credited with the Lilywhites' second goal against Stoke City last weekend.

Kane has come out on top in each of the last two seasons, and he admits that overhauling Salah to make that a hat-trick of successes is something that is on his mind heading into the final stretch of the campaign.

"He has done great. He has had an amazing season and has gone ahead, so we will see," the Englishman told Sky Sports News. "Because we are battling against Liverpool for the top four as well it's a bit of excitement. He scores four, let's see what I can come back with.

"Whatever happens at the end of the season both of us will have had good seasons and we both enjoy it. It's just the competition and trying to win, that's what I enjoy. Your job as a striker is to score goals and I feel if I don't that I have let the team down. I know I do other stuff like hold the ball up, try and bring other people into play and work hard, but my job is to score goals.

"I feel very passionate about it, I work very hard at the craft, it's competition, when you are fighting for the Golden Boot it's good competition and I want to win at everything I do, whether it's a match, the Golden Boot, or training. I always want to win and I have always had that. That passion and excitement of being the best and the highest scorer that season is what I want to achieve."

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has backed Kane to learn from the controversy surrounding his goal against Stoke last time out.
