Harry Kane responds to Heung-min Son penalty question as his Tottenham strike partner chases Golden Boot

Son’s 21 Premier League goals this season lead top scorer Mohamed Salah by one point, with just one game remaining, although the Liverpool star has six more assists that could be used as a tiebreaker.

The South Korean is enjoying his most prolific season yet and two goals against Norwich could seal a first Golden Boot with Salah an injury doubt for Liverpool’s home game against Wolves.

Spurs travel to the relegated Canaries on Sunday, needing a point to confirm the top four ahead of Arsenal, as well as a sixth consecutive place above their local rivals.

Kane is Tottenham’s penalty taker, scoring his 20th straight kick in the recent North London derby, and club legend Teddy Sheringham has asked him if he will step down.

Quotes from Sheringham said he asked Kane if he would give Son a penalty to win the Golden Boot on Sunday.

Sheringham told Bookmakers.com: “Harry came to talk to us after the game [a 1-0 win over Burnley]and I asked Harry a question that if we are [Spurs] beat Norwich two or three to nil, if the game is already won and there is another penalty, would you let Sonny have it so he can get the Golden Boot?

“He just laughed and he said, ‘Let’s win the game first, let’s get into this position.

Sheringham added: “He’s a goalscorer, he didn’t want to hand in a penalty straight away.”
