Harry Kane to break all English goal records, says Mauricio Pochettino

14 January 2018

Harry Kane is on course to break all the goalscoring records in top-flight English football after setting his latest landmark on Saturday, the striker's Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, believes.

South Korean Son Heung Min had got Spurs off and running with the first goal to equal former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe's record of scoring in five successive home matches.

Pochettino is confident that the records will continue falling, with 12 more goals required for the most scored in a single campaign in the competition's history.

Spurs responded as Kane tested Pickford with a first-time shot from Moussa Dembele's through-ball on 24 minutes, before they took the lead two minutes later. Kane played the ball out wide to Aurier, Aurier played it back inside to Son, Son flicked it around a defender to Alli, Alli majestically back-heeled it to Eriksen and the Dane added the cherry on top by nearly taking the goal net off with his finish.

The Turkey worldwide striker signed for the Merseysiders for £27million from Besiktas on Friday after scoring an impressive 14 goals in just 24 games in all competitions this term.

Mauricio Pochettino's men are in need of all three points as they look to keep pace in the race for the top four while Sam Allardyce's side can not afford to get complacent at the other end of the league despite a positive recent run of form.
