Kane has scored more 2015 goals than most other Premier League clubs

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has netted more times since January 1 than 13 of the Premier League's 20 clubs.

Spurs forward Harry Kane took his tally for the season to 29 in all competitions with his hat-trick against Leicester City this weekend, and it was the perfect way for him to celebrate his first call-up to the England squad ahead of games against Lithuania and Italy.

But it also meant that the Tottenham attacker had a new statistic to boast about, and a quite incredible one at that.

Kane has now scored more goals in 2015 than 13 of the Premier League's 20 teams.

His 14 strikes since the turn of the year, which started spectacularly with a brace in the 5-3 win over rivals Chelsea, have come in just 11 games. That's six more goals than his nearest rival has managed in that time, with Olivier Giroud scoring eight times in 10 matches.

That means only Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Crystal Palace and, of course, Tottenham have scored more times than Kane has managed himself.

Incredibly, that means the 21-year-old has also scored more times than Southampton, who are above Spurs in the league on goal difference. Aside from Palace, every other side below the North London outfit have failed to score as many as Kane.

And it is his form that has put Spurs at the top of the tree when it comes to goalscorers in the Premier League since January 1.

  Goals Since Jan 1 2015
Tottenham 26
Arsenal 24
Man City 21
Chelsea 20
Man Utd 19
Liverpool 18
C. Palace 16

The challenge for Kane now is to maintain those standards, once he returns from hopefully making his senior bow for England, with Spurs having eight games in which to try and bridge the six-point gap which currently separates them from the Champions League spots.
