    Kane. It was like this last season too and then he blitzed the end of the season with a couple of hat tricks. He’s incredible.

    Kane.

    He's the best striker in the league and Spurs are playing really well just now. Good mix.

    There's a good chance they won't have the CL to focus on too after this week whereas Liverpool will so Salah could be rotated a little more.

    Kane
    Salah,
    Aguero. the return of Jesus will see Kun play less than the other two.

    If Aguero was guaranteed to play every remaining minute I'd pick him as he's in great form.

    Probably Kane

    But Salah just can’t stop scoring, incredible really given he’s not even an out and out striker - he will push him close

    As much as I’d like for Salah to take it, I’d put my money on Kane if I was a betting man.

    I’m going to go with Salah. He seems to score every week.

    Saw this stat on the BBC site earlier: This is the 26th competitive game that Mo Salah has scored in this season - no other player within the top four tiers of English football has scored in more than 21 different club matches in 2017-18.

    Salah could get a minor lead though, and Kane/Aguero could just wipe it out with another 3/4 goal game.

    Either way, it should be a good race. As much as I don't want Kane to do well for Spurs, I'm damn well hoping he can reproduce his club form for England.

    Agreed. Kane and Aguero are more likely to score a handful on a particular day but Salah's consistency is something else. Aguero is the type of striker who won't score for 4 games but then bag a hatrick and a brace in the next 2 games after that.

    He has a better minutes to goal ratio than Lukaku and has missed ~30% of the season. :)

    It’ll be Salah.

    On pure form he’s probably the best in the world right now.

    Well, Chelsea, Spurs, City, Liverpool and even arsenal created more chances than United. I hope we can improve our creation next season with addition new CM and fullbacks so we don't become more reliant on Pogba.

    Either one of Kane, Salah or Aguero.

    Kane and Aguero have the best consistent services feeding them imo, while Salah's mojo this season is so consistent throughout.

    8-10 remaining EPL games.

    Rooting for Salah here.

    This is tantalizing from a more neutral point of view. Both Kane and Salah need to score 6 goals in 9 games to equal Shearer/Ronaldo/Suárez's record of 30 goals in a 38-game league season - which is pretty doable as things stand. And even though Agüero looks some ways off, he only needs one high-scoring game to bridge the gap. Can't remember the last time the record was under threat by three players at once, especially at this stage of the season in terms of projected numbers. Hope Lukaku pulls off 20+ goals as well - that will help end his season on a positive note, and do his confidence a world of good considering the recent improvement in his overall game and willingness to work for the greater good.

    It'll most likely be Kane considering his unstoppable goal sprees toward the end of the past two seasons. He also takes all the penalties for Tottenham so that'll help as well.

    Salah for me. It's like he's blessed, his shots even when not that good are close to be goals.

    It'll definitely be Kane, Salah might well overtake him in the short term but then Kane will go and get back to back hatricks

    Salah.

    I'm not looking up the stats as I could be wrong, but he seems to score every week, whereas Kane supplements his tally with a hattrick every so often. Salahs goals have been more consistent.
