Footballer Harry Kane Excited to Be Compared to Messi and Ronaldo

"Just getting more experience should make me a better player anyway".

What is black and white to Dyche is that Kane deserved the plaudits after the England global helped Spurs leapfrog Burnley into fifth as they chase a top-four finish and a place in the Champions League.

Once decried as a one-season wonder, the 24-year-old English marksman has gradually evolved into the No.9 par excellence, thriving for both his club (Tottenham Hotspur) and country (England). You deserve to hold the record of most @premierleague goals in a calendar year. After a stuttering campaign so far, the recent performances against Burnley and Southampton in the space of three days suggest that Spurs have once again found an extra gear at the end of the year. That is 18 games quicker than any other player in the competition's history.

36 Premier League goals in 2017. It's an approach that helped Burnley, Swansea and West Brom all earned points there.

"He's one of the best forwards in Europe", said Englishman Dyche.

Kane's third goal took him to 56 for club and country in 2017 - lifting him above Barcelona's Lionel Messi to become Europe's top-scorer over the past 12 months in the five major countries (England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France). Burnley skipper Ben Mee's poor ball out of defence was pounced upon by Moussa Sissoko, who sent Kane through to slot beyond Nick Pope. He almost grabbed a hat-trick midway through the second half, volleying Rose's cross an inch wide, before clinching it with a cool left-footed finish from Alli's pass.

"I am so happy for him, he needs one more to set the record over Alan and I think that is a massive individual achievement for him", he said.Asked whether Kane could go on to beat Shearer's career record of 260 Premier League goals, Pochettino noted the consistency the former Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers striker showed throughout his career but said Kane had the quality to produce something similar.

Tottenham Hotspur are rarely busy in the January transfer windows under Mauricio Pochettino, but they could look for a new addition this time around.

"He'll do it, he'll do it". Scoring goals for fun. I'm looking forward, and hope that next year will bring us a lot of victories. "Now, it's more than double that".
