Kane, Aguero & Salah close in on Cristiano milestone

The trio of prolific goalscorers now stand on the brink of a feat not seen in English football since Cristiano Ronaldo departed for Real Madrid a decade ago.
Ronaldo was the last player to score 40 goals in a season for an English club when he hit 42 on his way to winning the Ballon d’Or and a league and Champions League double for Manchester United in 2007/08.

• Kane is yet to win such illustrious honors, but is on course for a third straight Premier League golden boot after netting his 35th goal of the campaign late on to win a vital three points for Tottenham at Crystal Palace last weekend. However, Kane is not alone in the race to follow Ronaldo into the 40-goal club.

• Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has already matched Luis Suarez’s best ever tally at Anfield with 31 goals in all competitions and is just one behind Kane’s 24 in the race to be the league’s top scorer.

• Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has 30 in all competitions and outstrips Kane and Salah for goals per minute in the Premier League for his 21.

The fact all three surpassed the 30-goal mark before March points to a trend of a more unbalanced top flight than the norm in England.
