Jamie Carragher's Harry Kane prediction after his two goals vs Huddersfield

After another goalless August, some people were questioning Harry Kane’s ability.

However, as much as the striker hates August, he absolutely loves September.

On the final day of the month, Kane took his September tally to 13 for club and country in just seven-and-a-half matches with a first-half brace against Huddersfield. Incredible. And who would rule him out of grabbing a hat-trick in the second-half? Not us...

His two goals against Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon saw Kane score his fifth and sixth Premier League goals of the season, moving level with Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot.

But the race for the campaign’s top goalscorer isn’t the only goalscoring race Kane is currently participating in.

That’s because he seems set to challenge Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goal tally of 260.

Of course, at the age of 24, it’s still very early to predict whether Kane can reach that. But, having already notched 85, he still has around 10 years to score another 175.

Of course, there are plenty of reasons that Kane may not be able to achieve it. A move to the likes of Barcelona or Real Madrid in the future must be tempting for the England international. Or there’s the possibility of a long-term injury that could impact his career.

But, if neither of those things happen, Sky Sports pundit and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher thinks that Kane will eclipse Shearer.

“Didn't think Shearer's PL goal record would ever be beat, but if Kane stays in the PL & injury free I think he'll do it,” Carragher tweeted after Kane’s first goal.

And it’s hard to disagree with him in all honesty.

Pochettino on Kane

But there must be a slight worry in the minds of all Spurs fans’ minds as Kane continues to produce world-class performances week-in-week-out. The striker is no doubt attracting interest from some top European clubs and his manager, Mauricio Pochettino, believes that he is already one of the forwards in the world.

"Harry Kane is so young, for he is the one of the best today and one of the best in the world,” he said.


"He can be better because he is young, he can improve because he is as professional. There is a gap to improve.

"All the praise and words I can use to describe him, I cannot find any more.”
