Tottenham striker Harry Kane has the opportunity to extend his impressive scoring record against London clubs on Friday evening, as Mauricio Pochettino's side travel to West Ham.

The 23-year-old is again among the contenders for the Premier League's Golden Boot, having scored 21 goals in just 25 starts, and has also been in fine form in cup competitions. Kane has registered two goals in three Champions League appearances, and four goals in his three FA Cup outings this term.

Friday's meeting at London Stadium not only offers a platform for Kane to extend his overall goal tally, but to also add to his impressive record in derbies. 

In the 32 games Kane has played against fellow London clubs, in all competitions, he has struck 24 goals.

In his last outing, the north London derby against Arsenal, Kane extended his impressive record against the Gunners, against whom he has now struck six goals in as many games, with the 2-0 victory his second win against Arsene Wenger's men. 

Kane has had similar success against West Ham, too - in the six meetings with the Hammers, the forward has led Spurs to three victories, lost twice and drew one, scoring five goals.

He has also now struck four against Chelsea in eight appearances, but has been on the winning side against the Blues just twice, drawing three and losing three.

Fulham have also proved somewhat of a good luck charm for Kane, having scored four goals in just two outings against the Cottagers, three of which came in the fifth-round FA Cup tie, while he has scored twice in as many games against Queens Park Rangers. 

Kane has found Crystal Palace somewhat difficult to break down, though. In seven appearances against the Eagles, he has scored twice, but has been on the winning side on four occasions and lost just twice.

The former Millwall loanee also started against the Lions in the FA Cup but was forced off the pitch with an ankle injury as Spurs eased to a 6-0 victory.
