Harry Kane has quickly established himself as a heavyweight Premier League striker over the past 18 months or so.

The England striker scored either side of half-time to help Mauricio Pochettino’s side secured a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Kane’s brace against the league’s 20th-placed side took his tally to 19 goals in 30 top-flight appearances, level with Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

And the 22-year-old opted for a sparring session with one of Tottenham’s coaches on Tuesday evening as the Spurs striker looked to get a competitive edge on his rivals.

Kane wrote on his Instagram page: “Extra training with the pads 👊 #boxing #training”

Kane will be hoping to start Tottenham’s second-leg clash against Borussia Dormund at White Hart Lane on Thursday night.
