It was a big turning point for Harry Kane, too: he started every league game from that point on, and went on to score an wonderful 31 goals in all competitions, 21 in the Premier League.

Fernando Llorente has revealed the reasons why he snubbed a move to Chelsea to complete a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs are still awaiting their first Premier League win at their temporary home and were unable to build on Wednesday's Champions League success against Borussia Dortmund. Kane caught fire in Spurs' two wins, scoring twice in both games.

The England striker has now netted a total of 29 goals in 27 games in 2017 at a strike rate better than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. Former Arsenal player Thierry Henry needed 181 while Neymar reached 100 in 177.

Christian Eriksen has six goals and four assists in seven PL matches v Swansea, more goal involvements (10) than versus any other side.

Faced with the prospect of being a "one-season wonder", Kane silenced critics by starting every Premier League game for Spurs the following season and was the league's top scorer with 25 goals.

Alli may be a fantastic footballer, but he must get his head down and concentrate on his football if he wants to be considered one of the world's best.

"He needs to be challenging for the Ballon d'Or". Pochettino pointed to one especially noteworthy goal from early in Kane's Tottenham career: his deflected, 90th minute free kick victor at Villa Park in November, 2014 against Aston Villa that completed an impressive comeback victory. A good individual goal, Jan just kind of booted it up in the air and I was there to chase it down and managed to get a good finish off in the end. That's the aim for everyone. The 28-year-old now earns just £50,000-a-week despite being regarded as one of the Premier League's best defenders, due to Spurs' tight finances.

Mauricio Pochettino believes a certain goal in Harry Kane's first century of strikes for Tottenham was responsible for saving him from the sack.

When asked if he has pencilled in a return date, Pochettino said: "No, it's like the case of Lamela".
