Tottenham's Harry Kane lays claim to an impressive statistic after scoring against Brighton in the League Cup.

Spurs striker Harry Kane is one of the most in form strikers in England right now, and he is in good company when considering how many minutes it takes for him to get on the scoresheet.

The forward has yet to find the net in the league, but in his defence has just 68 minutes to his name in that competition. Where the striker has been shining however is in both the Europa League and the League Cup, with the 21-year-old having now registered 8 goals in 7 games in those fixtures.

In fact, all together Kane has a goalscoring record of one every 79 minutes, a better than one-goal-a-game record that only the likes of Sergio Aguero (75 minutes) and Diego Costa (77) can rival.

Only Manchester City's superstar Argentine, and the Chelsea powerhouse can top Kane in a goals to minutes ratio from players within the top flight, with West Ham forward Diafra Sakho also impressing with a goal every 88 minutes.

Though Pochettino continues to hold the Spurs graduate back for the cup competitions, his continuing form whenever he turns out, as well as the struggles of his fellow strikers at Tottenham, may well force the former Southampton manager's hand with regards to giving him a genuine chance in the Premier League.

Kane proved last season that he can find the back of the net there by registering his first 3 Premier League goals in continuous games.

Spurs fans will find out against Aston Villa on Sunday if he gets a first Premier League start of the season to try and add to his impressive performances.
