Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness raved about Harry Kane, when writing a column for Sky Sports, suggesting that the 24-year-old has carried his team over the past 18 months.

The England international has been in sensational form once again for Tottenham this term, bagging 21 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions, and it must be worrying for Spurs fans to think where their club would be without him.

The Lilywhites currently sit in fifth position in the Premier League table, a massive 21 points adrift of league leaders Manchester City, but perhaps more importantly, just one point adrift of fourth placed Liverpool.

Finishing inside the Champions League places will be vital for Tottenham this season, with the move to their home pencilled in for for the start of next term.

Souness offered high words of praise for the Spurs man, when writing a column for Sky Sports, highlighting how much trouble Tottenham would be in without him:

"Kane's goals last season and again this campaign… he's single-handedly carried Tottenham at times. Maybe the manager and some of the players won't appreciate that comment but goals win you games. If you've got Harry in your team you don't have to play well to win games."

Kane has the chance to beat Alan Shearer's long-standing record of 36 league goals scored in a calendar year, when Spurs welcome Southampton to Wembley tomorrow.

The 24-year-old has bagged 36 Premier League goals in 2017, and needs just one more to achieve history.

One thing is for sure, it would take a brave man to bet against him doing just that.
