Ian Wright predicts this Tottenham striker will outscore Man United star this season

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright is backing Harry Kane to finish ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the Premier League's goal-scoring charts

Ian Wright believes Harry Kane will finish ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the race for the Premier League’s golden boot this season.

The England striker scored a hat-trick in Tottenham Hotspur’s 4-0 win against West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane last weekend to take his tally to 14 goals in 16 games in all competitions.

Manchester United signed Ibrahimovic in a free transfer from Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain in the summer as the 34-year-old became the second signing of Jose Mourinho’s reign.

The former Sweden international has answered his critics with a return of 14 goals in 19 games in the Premier League this term, including a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Old Trafford last weekend.

Ex-Arsenal striker Wright is tipping Kane to finish ahead of Ibrahimovic in the goal-scoring charts in the Premier League.

“[My money] is on Harry Kane. I think it will be between Kane and Ibrahimovic. Sanchez will nick his goals but I don’t think he’ll get them as frequently as Harry Kane. He is Tottenham’s main man,” Wright told The Sun Goals podcast.
