Salah vs. Kane – more goals for a player, Premier League 18/19, England
Analysis and prediction for player with most goals between Salah & Kane
When making such predictions and betting on such types of picks, several major factors have to be noted. In this case the bet is for 2 goalscorers in the Premier League of England and which one will score more goals next season.
The players’ teams
First you need to see in which teams the two attackers are playing and what their ambitions are. It can certainly be said that both Tottenham and Liverpool players strive to create as many opportunities as possible for Kane and Salah respectively. This is also the reason why these 2 football players scored a total of 63 goals last season only in the championship. Now, however, Liverpool has stepped up very seriously in some of their most important posts. Currently, the reds have a serious class in the middle of the pitch. Something that couldn’t be said last season, at least on paper. For the champions league final, for example, Wijnaldum, Milner and Henderson were their central midfielders. Now there are Keita and Fabigno. If Oxlade-Chamberlain was not injured, he would certainly have been first choice among the previous two. And having names as Wijnaldum, Henderson and Milner + Lallana, who actually brought Liverpool to the final in the UCL, is a very good news for the reds. The presence of these players in the middle of the field means that Liverpool will be able to keep the ball, be more aggressive, to bounce balls more easily to the attackers and to score more goals accordingly. In theory, Salah should have even more opportunities than last season to score. No incoming transfers have been made in Tottenham this summer and are unlikely to be made. That means Spurs will try to keep the level from last year and eventually build up. However, it was regrettable to see that their squad was short, in example, against Juventus in the Champions League’s round of 16. This will certainly be a problem for them again. Liverpool does not rely only on Salah to score goals. Mane and Firmino are also great attackers and in the new season responsibility is even expected to rise. Still, Mo Salah remains the star of the team and will be expected to hit the nets again. Tottenham Hotspur is a bit different and Spurs can be more reliant on Kane for goals, but it is up to how the seasons of the two teams will go through. If one of them has problems, it is normal and their goal scorer not to be particularly effective.
The key is the constancy
The difference between Harry Kane and Salah’s performance is that Salah is much more constant, while Kane can score 3-4 goals against one team, but there are periods he does not score so often. Specifically last year, Salah failed to score in 14 meetings of 38, but in 2 of them was not in the team, and in other 2 he didn’t play enough minutes. The only two teams that did not get a goal from the Egyptian were Manchester United and Swansea. Salah himself had 2 instances in which he did not manage to score in 2 consecutive games alone. Something that again talks about his great perseverance and his huge influence. Kane did not manage to score 3 consecutive games 3 times last season, and he did not score a goal in 19 of the 38 matches.
Why Salah is not a one season miracle
Many people ask whether Salah has accidentally made his best season of his life, and now that everyone knows what he is capable of, he can not impress so much. The reason we believe he will continue to maintain this awesome level is very simple. In fact, Salah has always been a great footballer. Already in Rome he has been one of their most important players, if not the most important player. The key to Liverpool’s outbreak, however, lies in the style of the reds and, of course, in Klopp. The German knows perfectly how to squeeze the maximum from Salah, and the sharpness and direct football of the team itself fits the Egyptian, because of his incredible speed. When behind him there are class players at his level, this unlocks his potential. And this does not only apply to Salah. Every player can play awesome in one team and not so good in another. We can give hundreds of examples, but let’s see Alexis Sanchez. He was the star of Arsenal and scored a goal after goal. After his transfer to Manchester United, the Chilean is not the same player. The reason for that lies in Mourinho’s radically different style of football of playing rather than Arsenal. Sanchez just does not feel in his place, at least for now. If Sanchez was hypothetically playing in Liverpool, it wouldn’t be surprise if we had seen him at the same level as he was performing, when he was defending the colors of the “gunners”. Another important thing is that Salah is also very strong mentally. He already has a huge self-esteem and a mentality of a winner. Until now, there have been no fluctuations in his game or signs of low morale. In the few minutes he recorded in pre-season for Liverpool, he scored several times in the same way he did during the last season.
Salah vs. Kane
The odds for Kane are lower than Salah’s, because Kane isEnglish and has played in England all his career. He is also a top scorer for two consecutive years and scored at least 20 goals in three consecutive seasons, showing constancy. The Egyptian winger has played in England for only one season and can not be compared with previous seasons, as is the case with Kane. At the moment the rates are at 2.39 for Salah and 1.52 for Kane. Our prediction is Salah to score more than the Englishman in the new season. In one of our other long-term predictions, we have given Liverpool – the Premier League winner of the new season, which means we expect a strong performance from the reds, which is normal, because of their investments and performance last years under Klopp. If Liverpool make a strong season, they fight for the title till the end and are better than Tottenham, it is logical to expect their big star to score quite often, and the odds are certainly worth it.
