The World Cup Golden Boot is giving the Spurs star plenty of confidence as he finds himself chasing another league scoring crown

Tottenham star Harry Kane is using his World Cup success to inspire him to winning the Premier League Golden Boot once again.

Kane has scored in three consecutive league games to move onto nine goals, just one behind top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The 25-year-old won back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots in 2015-16 and 2016-17, while Kane was also the top scorer at the World Cup in Russia.

And the forward believes his ability to deliver for England on the game's biggest stage gave him confidence to get through tough spells at Spurs.

"When you've done it on the biggest stage of them all, the World Cup, you can look back and gain confidence from that," he told reporters.

"If you're going through a spell where you're not scoring, a couple of games here and there, you know you can do it at the highest level. You guys know what I'm like now.

"I know what I can achieve and I'll work as hard as I can to keep reaching goals and reaching more."

Kane has scored 13 goals in all competitions this season, having netted 76 across the past two campaigns.

The Spurs star is now eager to continue performing for his club, who are third in the Premier League and visit Leicester City on Saturday.

"Since I've been in the Premier League, it has had some of the best strikers in the world," Kane said.

"Aubameyang is at the top end at the moment. There's quite a few on eight or nine goals so it's important for me to carry on doing what I'm doing.

"There's still a lot of the season to go, but I'm happy with where I am."

Spurs will have to quickly put the Leicester match behind them with a crunch Champions League clash against Barcelona to follow on Tuesday. 

Tottenham sit second in Champions League Group B, level on points with third-placed Inter heading into the final matchday of the group stage and will likely have to produce a result at Camp Nou to advance to the last 16.
