According to an article by FourFourTwo Alan Shearer has said ,with confidence, that Harry Kane will break his 22 year Premier League record as he raved about the free-scoring Tottenham star.

The article says Kane matched Shearer’s record of 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year with a hat-trick in our 3-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday adding that the 24-year-old has the chance to set a new benchmark in Tottenham’s hosting of Southampton on Boxing Day – Spurs’ final match of 2017.

It adds that Shearer is adamant he will be surpassed by the England forward:”He’ll do it, he’ll do it. He is obsessed with scoring goals,” Shearer – who set the record in 1995 during his time with Blackburn Rovers – told BBC’s Match of the Day.

“The hunger to get on the ball and put the ball in the back of the net, he’s full of confidence and everything about him is class. He is brilliant.

Shearer went on to say: “I remember saying a few years ago, we were covering an FA Cup tie, then he was worth £90 million. Now, it’s more than double that.”
