Kane has scored 23 goals in all competitions this season, which is more than any other Premier League player has managed. Early in the campaign, many of the striker’s goals came against lesser Europa League opposition, the likes of AEL Limassol and Asteras Tripolis. But more recently, Kane has proved his true quality against Tottenham’s fiercest rivals, Chelsea and Arsenal, scoring twice against both.

Of course, comparisons with Bale must be notched down a little with Kane. Prior to his first-team arrival at Spurs, the 21-year old may have been highly rated by just about all of his past coaches, but fans of various loan clubs were quick to write him off. Tim Sherwood’s belief in Kane, combined with Mauricio Pochettino’s patience and persistence, allowed him to flourish. He is not world class like Bale. Not yet. But his attitude, his willingness to get better every day - that’s what Bale showcased at Tottenham. And that’s exactly what Kane is doing right now.
