Harry Kane latest goal-scoring exploits for Tottenham mean he is second only to Alan Shearer on a Premier League goal chart.

Winner of the Golden Boot in each of the last two seasons, the England international is chasing down a personal hat-trick.

He remains very much in that hunt, with the 24-year-old on target once again in his latest outing against Stoke City.

That contest saw Kane reach 90 efforts in English top-flight competition, with Newcastle legend Shearer the only man to have reached that tally in fewer games.

Kane’s record is remarkable given that it appeared at one stage as though he may never make his Premier League breakthrough.

He was, however, to take his chance when it presented itself and is now one of the most fearsome frontmen in world football.

The 20-goal barrier has been broken in three successive top-flight campaigns, while last season saw him record a personal best of 35 efforts across all competitions.

Kane has already passed 20 goals for club and country this term, with his contribution keeping Spurs in the hunt for another top-four finish and England en route to the 2018 World Cup.
