Goal and Sure have partnered to create the Pressure Index, the only way to measure how players are handling the stress of the most competitive league

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane will be eyeing Premier League history this weekend.

The England international is set to return from injury against Bournemouth needing just one goal to become only the fourth player to hit 20 or more goals in three successive seasons.

If he finds the net on Saturday at White Hart Lane, he’ll write himself into Premier League folklore by joining former greats Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Ruud van Nistelrooy in an illustrious list of EPL marksmen.

Kane will be hoping to make an inspirational return and turn the pressure back to league leaders Chelsea, who face a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday.

Antonio Conte’s side are unbeaten in eight games versus Man Utd and in Eden Hazard have a man in sensational form.
