When it comes to in-form goalscorers in the Premier League, they don't come much better than Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane.

The England international was on target for Spurs once again in their 2-1 win over Manchester City at the Etihad, netting from the penalty spot to help the north Londoners move to within two points of leaders Leicester City.

Kane has now scored 16 goals in the Premier League this season, just three fewer than current top scorer Jamie Vardy.

But despite trailing the Leicester striker by some distance, the Tottenham striker remains the in-form man when it comes to finding the back of the net.

Granted, Vardy embarked on a record-breaking run of scoring in 11 consecutive Premier League games for the Foxes, but his strike rate has been slightly less prolific - only slightly - over the past couple of months.

In fact, it's Kane who has impressed most of late, with Opta revealing his current form in one particular tweet:

The tweet highlights that, after his goal against City, Kane has now scored 15 goals in his last 17 Premier League appearances.

It's a return that has seen the 22-year-old climb the goalscoring charts in the English top-flight following a slow start to the current campaign.

More importantly, it highlights that the Tottenham youngster is far from a flash in the pan following his breakthrough 2014/15 campaign.

Kane scored 31 goals for Spurs last season, including 21 in the Premier League, and is now on course to surpass that tally for the Lilywhites.

His fine form should also all-but-ensure his place at Euro 2016, having already netted three goals on international duty under Roy Hodgson.

On this kind of form, he could even surpass Vardy as the Premier League's top scorer, especially given the fact he has taken the most shots (99) and found the target (64%) the most times this season.
