Fantasy's two top goalscorers and season-long rivals are set to battle for the armband one last time

Golden Boot rivals Harry Kane (£13.1m) and Mohamed Salah (£10.4m) are set to contest the Fantasy Premier League captaincy one final time.

Kane was the most popular pick in Gameweek 37.

He was backed by more than a million managers, but only 4,007 more than Salah.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker scored a goal and eight points over two matches against West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United.

Having netted in three of his last four Gameweeks, Kane is now three goals behind Salah in the race to be the Premier League’s top scorer.

Home help

Both players have home fixtures on Sunday.

Kane has a strong record against Leicester City, scoring five goals over their previous two league meetings.

The Foxes arrive at Wembley Stadium with only two clean sheets in their last 13 matches.

Statistically, Kane has the bigger goal threat in home matches.

He beats Salah for shots (108 to 89), shots in the penalty area (68 to 67) and shots on target (47 to 40).

Salah slump

The Liverpool midfielder drew a blank against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

It meant he failed to find the net in two successive matches for the first time since Gameweek 8.

Salah will look to return to the scoresheet when Brighton & Hove Albion arrive on Merseyside.

Like Leicester, the Seagulls have struggled to shut out opponents of late, recording two clean sheets from their last 16 matches.

They also lost 5-1 to Jurgen Klopp’s side back in Gameweek 15.

Anfield form

Salah has an outstanding record on home turf.

The Egyptian has delivered nine double-figure points scores in home matches, more than any other FPL player.

And since a 5-0 win over Swansea City on Boxing Day, he has scored in seven of the last eight at Anfield.
