EPL: Harry Kane now has the same number of goals as Mohamed Salah.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane equalled Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah's record for the most Premier League matches scored during a season on Saturday, and he still has two games left to break the record.

Kane scored from the penalty spot late in the game against Aston Villa to give Tottenham their 27th goal of the season in a 2-1 loss in the Premier League.

Aston Villa defeated Tottenham at Villa Park thanks to two goals from Jacob Ramsey and Douglas Luiz.

However, Kane’s goal against Aston Villa means the England captain has now scored in 24 different Premier League matches this season – the same tally Salah managed in the 2017-2018 season.

Although Manchester City striker Erling Haaland leads the scoring charts with 35 goals, the Norway international has only netted in 22 different matches so far – two less than Kane.

Haaland does, of course, still have four matches left to try and draw level with Kane and Salah, or perhaps even surpass the duo.
