26th December 2017, remember the date. This was the day which Harry Kane smashed Alan Shearer’s Premier League record.
The Tottenham striker started the day one goal behind Shearer’s record of 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year, which he achieved with Blackburn Rovers in 1995.
The Spurs striker netted a hat-trick in the 5-2 demolition of Southampton at Wembley to take his tally for 2017 in the league to an impressive 39. He has also scored more times this year than both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
