There are not many things defenders fear more than an in form Harry Kane, and the Spurs striker believes he is close to top form.

Kane has already shown a steady goal scoring touch so far this season, and is well in with a shout for his fourth golden boot in four years.

Harry won two golden boot awards back to back before being trumped by Mo Salah last season, however Kane did then go on to scoop up the World Cup golden boot instead.

Spurs will be looking to ensure they have Champions League football in their stadium next year, and Kane’s form could prove to be pivotal.

The Lilywhites leapfrogged their London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal into third place during the midweek fixtures, but those positions will likely chop and change a lot between now and the end of the season.

Spurs will also be hoping to end their trophyless run this year.

ESPN report Kane said: “This is the sort of period I like, where you get into a rhythm, get into a routine,” he said. “I feel in good shape and I feel I’m at my best when I’m in my rhythm.

“You don’t think too much. If you miss a couple of chances you get back quickly. You know where the spaces are, you know where the ball’s going to drop.

“It’s these sorts of periods in my career where I’m at my best. It might be down to fitness as well — when teams are tired I exploit the space a bit more. In December and January I hit top form, and winning games is important in this period as well.

“When you’ve done it on the biggest stage of them all, the World Cup, you can look back and gain confidence from that. If you’re going through a spell where you’re not scoring, a couple of games here and there, you know you can do it at the highest level.”
