Kane matches Sheringham

Harry Kane leads the Premier League for shots on target and sits third in the Premier League Golden Boot race with 8 goals, Romelu Lukaku has 9 and man of the moment Jamie Vardy has 13. You could say he is the most accurate striker in the Premier League.

For a player who had a slow start to the season, due probably to a lack of rest to recharge the mind in the summer, leading the shots on target table reinforces the fact that he is the real deal. He has now scored 9 goals in his last 6 games and is the first Tottenham player to score in six consecutive matches since Teddy Sheringham in Sept-Oct 1995.

I have written an article being released soon that points out Chelsea are conceding more shots from dangerous positions than last season, a major reason for their poor results. Tottenham had to address the same thing, we had to stop teams from shooting so close to our goal and shoot ourselves from closer to the opposition goal.

All simple stuff, but vital to results in football games, it has a direct correlation. The Kane goal map is, therefore, further evidence we are achieving that and this getting better results. Seven of Kane;s eight Premier League goals have been from inside the box and he scored again in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday against Qarabag from inside the six-yard box.
