Shearer backs Kane to close in on his Premier League record

Harry Kane is in the goalscoring form of his life right now and it is hard not to take notice of the Tottenham Hotspur striker.

After scoring 11 goals in all competitions in September for Spurs, the England international has since added more to his tally.

Kane made up for not netting in his last two appearances by scoring twice in a 4-1 rout over Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

The 24-year-old took four minutes to strike and after goals from Son Heung-min and Dele Alli, Kane nabbed his second 11 minutes into the second half.

As it stands, the striker has 86 top-flight goals and he is improving season by season having netted 25 in the 2015-16 campaign and 29 last season – both tallies earning him the Golden Boot.

Shearer currently holds the Premier League scoring record having racked up 260 in 441 appearances across spells at Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers.

After witnessing Kane’s goals on Sunday, the BBC pundit took to Twitter to suggest that the Tottenham man is closing in on his record, even though the striker has a way to go to match it.
