Harry Kane has just scored for Tottenham against Bournemouth inside the first minute at White Hart Lane.

The England international bagged his 20th goal of the season - making him the league's top scorer - to help ease the tension in north London, a day after Leicester opened up an eight point lead at the top of the table with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Of course, Tottenham fans were delighted with Kane's speedy strike, which also keeps rivals at Arsenal at bay following their 2-0 victory against Everton at Goodison Park.

Sadly for the in-form forward however, it wasn't the quickest goal of the season, despite the fact it came after 44 seconds. You can watch the video of the goal at the bottom of this article.

Nope, that prize goes to Chelsea's Kenedy, who took just 39 seconds to score against Norwich earlier this month.

Kane's goal goes in at number two behind the Brazilian's strike, and weirdly it goes in just ahead of Matt Ritchie's 49 second strike, the third-fastest goal of the season, against Tottenham from back in October.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are on course for their best ever Premier League finish this term, but it could still get so much better. If Spurs are able to hold on to their early lead then they will close the gap to Leicester to five points with eight games to go.

Of course there is still plenty of time for Eddie Howe's team to respond and ruin Tottenham's party.

Do you think Tottenham can snatch the league from Leicester this season?
