Harry Kane has been in the form of his life so far this season and has broken more than one milestone during the campaign.

The Tottenham star became the third quickest player in the history of the Premier League to reach the 150-goal mark and also netted his 200th goal for Spurs in his 300th matches in all competitions.

During Tottenham’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday, the England captain also set a record along with Son Heung-min for combining for the most goals in a single Premier League season after his the striker’s second goal was set up the South Korean.

That was the 14th league goal that the two Spurs forwards have combined for, one better than the previous record set by former Blackburn duo Chris Sutton and Alan Shearer back in the 1994/95 campaign.

However, that is not the only milestone Kane reached with his second and Tottenham’s fourth against Palace.

Duncan Alexander, the Author of Outside The Box & The Opta Joe Football Yearbook, took to social media to reveal that the Tottenham star’s second effort against the Eagles was his 26th headed goal of his career, making him part of a unique shortlist.

With that header, Kane became just the third player in the history of the Premier League after Robbie Fowler and Andy Cole to score more than 25 goals with his head, left foot & right foot.

This record yet against demonstrates how complete Kane is as a forward and the versatile type of finishes he is capable. I believe that the 27-year-old is undoubtedly the most well-rounded forward in world football t the moment.
