Harry Kane: Every time I play I want to get on the scoresheet

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane has highlighted his goalscoring instincts today.

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane's determination to show that he can be the man to lead the line for the club has been highlighted in his most recent statement. 

Spurs have been searching for a clinical hitman for some time, but Kane is showing signs that he could be able to fill this massive void in the squad.

The youngster leads the club's goalscoring charts with 12 strikes to his name in all competitions and he is not resting on his laurels now. 

“Every time I play I want to get on the scoresheet and do my best for the team," he told the club's official site.

It is an attitude which is sure to encourage Spurs fans, who have seen their strikers falter in front of goal of late.

Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor have both endured torrid seasons so far and seem set for January exits, meaning the scoring burden is firmly on Kane's shoulders. 

Thankfully for the 21-year-old, he was able to do his duty on Sunday, as his header helped Tottenham claim three points against Swansea City. 

Kane scored the opening goal of the match before Christian Eriksen curled home a late winner and the youngster says he was delighted to claim the three points. 

"For the winner, Ben Davies put a great ball in to Christian, he turned, gave the 'keeper the eyes and reversed it back through the defender’s legs," he said. "We were all absolutely buzzing to see it hit the back of the net.

“Our fans have had some good away trips so far this season with the amount of last-minute winners we’ve had. Hopefully we can make it a bit easier for them in the next one and maybe get a few goals ahead before the end!”

Tottenham's next match comes in the Capital One Cup against Newcastle United where they will be hoping that Kane's desire to score shines through again.
