‘He is the benchmark’ – Paul Merson made a statement about Tottenham’s key player


Paul Merson has declared that England captain Harry Kane will win the Golden Boot next season.

The Arsenal legend says the Spurs striker is a model for young strikers like Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez.

Still, the pundit reports that Kane will face stiff competition in the form of Mohamed Salah and other contenders.

But the main factor is that the Englishman will play in every match whenever possible, and other players may not play all the matches in the starting lineup at all.

‘Harry Kane is still my favourite for the Golden Boot. And he is the benchmark for Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez.’

‘You win the Golden Boot by scoring against the bottom-half teams, not by scoring 15 goals against the top-four sides.’

“You get your hat-tricks against the struggling teams in January and Kane will be playing every game.

“I don’t see Haaland doing the same as City want to win the Champions League.

“And with Liverpool that front three can change very quickly. Even Mohamed Salah has been on the bench.”
