Harry Kane makes it elite trio now with Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry

Fair play to Harry Kane, he is showing season after season he could just maybe match Alan Shearer’s epic achievements in the Premier League.

Two more goals on Saturday as Tottenham hammered Fat Sam’s Everton 4-0.

That brace means Harry Kane moves onto 20 Premier League goals for the season, with still 15 matches remaining.

What it also does is move him into elite company with Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry, on one particular record.

The Spurs striker now only the third striker in the Premier League era to score 20 goals in four seasons in a row.

Thierry Henry actually did it five years in a row from 2001/02 to 2005/06.

Alan Shearer did it three seasons in a row at Blackburn and then in 1996/97 when he joined Newcastle and played alongside Les Ferdinand. Not many would have bet against him making it five in a row but that awful injury Shearer suffered pre-season at Goodison Park put paid to that.

As Newcastle sit on only 21 goals in total from 23 games and a top scorer with only four goals, what would we give for another Alan Shearer, or failing that…a Harry Kane.
