Tottenham have been title challengers for the past few years, largely due to the goal-scoring exploits of Harry Kane.

After a slow start to life as a professional footballer, which featured multiple loan moves to lower league clubs, Kane burst onto the scene in north London in the 2014/2015 - and he has not looked back since.

Kane has notched more than 20 Premier League goals for the past three seasons, including 25 in 2015/2016 and 29 in 2016/2017 - both seasons he won the Golden Boot.

He has already scored eight in 10 games this year, putting him as the front runner for the Golden Boot once again this campaign.

And his impressive performances have attracted the praise of many in the football world, with fans and pundits alike considering Kane to be one of the best strikers in world football.


Kieran Trippier has also been quick to sing the praises of Kane.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Trippier opens up about the major influence Kane has on the Tottenham dressing room, whilst also claiming that his mentality in training is what makes him such a great player.

Speaking about Kane, Trippier said: "He's the best professional I've ever met.

"Even when I first came here you could see he's a leader. He's so dedicated. At training he's the first one in, last one out. Nobody works so hard and nobody deserves it more than him.


"The whole team recognise how good he is and you feel confident going into games knowing he might score one, two or three.

And Trippier also revealed that everyone at Tottenham works hard for eachother, as a result of the tone that Kane sets in training.

The England right back continued: "But there's not one person at Spurs who thinks 'I'll have a day off here'.

"Everyone works hard at this club, every player, playing or not. Harry sets the tone and other senior pros set the tone with him. Everyone works hard for each other."

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that Kane, who has been struggling with a knee injury of late, is set to play against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Argentine said: "Harry Kane is ok. You can see in the last game he received a kick to his knee, but he will be available for the next game."

That will be a big relief to Tottenham fans, who will be confident that they can secure a win over their bitter rivals with Kane leading the line up-front.
