He made a prolific start to the season in the Europa League and the League Cup with six goals against AEL, Besiktas, Nottingham Forest, Brighton and Astreas Trip.

Kane scored back-to-back hat-tricks in Tottenham’s final two games of 2017 to smash Shearer’s record after he finished the calendar year on 39 Premier League goals. His treble against Southampton made the Spurs talisman the first player to score six Premier League hat-tricks in a calendar year.
