Harry Kane scored his 11th, 12th and 13th Premier League goals of the season with a phenomenal hat-trick during Tottenham Hotspur’s unbelievable performance against West Brom on Saturday.
Despite ‘only’ winning 4-0, it’s a game that could have seen eight or nine go past Ben Foster. The West Brom goalkeeper was in exceptional form and the only reason the result wasn’t a heavier defeat for the Baggies.
Kane’s scoring record not only continues to be sensational but it’s also historic. As this stat by Opta shows, no other Spurs player reached 60 Premier League goals in quicker time.
60 – Harry Kane has reached 60 Premier League goals faster than any other Tottenham player in the competition (99 games). Homegrown.

Adding another 2 to his tally shortly after his 60th, that makes it 62 goals in 99 appearances in one of the best leagues in the world. That’s quite an achievement and at the age of just 23, you feel he’s only going to get better and better in a Spurs shirt. He’s proving to be better than any White Hart Lane striker that’s gone before him in the Premier League era.
Tottenham have now won seven games in a row in all competitions and have kept the pressure on the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool in the top 4.
The title race is shaping up to be a very exciting one indeed and if Pochettino can keep Harry Kane in this kind of form, they have every chance of going on to win it.
