Premier League golden boot: Salah enjoys healthy lead atop standings
Harry Kane is confident he can keep rising up the list of Premier League goalscorers after leapfrogging Thierry Henry to move into sixth position.
The Tottenham striker netted a brace during the 5-0 thrashing of Everton to move his season’s tally up to 20 goals in all competitions – 10 of which have come in the league.
His first against the Toffees moved him to 175, level with legendary Arsenal striker Henry, before moving ahead of the Frenchman with his second half strike.
He now sits just a solitary goal behind Frank Lampard – who endured a thoroughly miserable evening with his Toffees side plunged into further relegation trouble.

He now has Sergio Aguero (184) and Andy Cole (187) firmly in his sights, with Wayne Rooney (208) and Alan Shearer (260) currently comprising the top two.
And aged 28, Kane believes he is playing the best football of his career with hopes he still has plenty left in the tank.
“Thierry was one of the greatest strikers we have seen, so nice to go above him in the scorers list and hopefully they keep coming,” Kane told Sky Sports.
“I feel like I’ve got plenty of years left in me, hopefully I can keep ticking off those names and helping the team with my goals.”

Kane also spoke on his differing role under Conte, having gone from the focal point of the attack under Mauricio Pochettino, to a withdrawn No.10 playmaker with the Italian.
“It comes down to different managers and different ways of playing,” he explained. “If you look over the last few years with Mourinho and now Conte, my game has changed a little bit in terms of dropping deep and getting in those pockets.
“I played as a number 10 in the youth team and I’ve always backed myself looking forward and making passes forward.
“As teams and managers change, you have to adapt your game and I feel like I’ve worked well, not just physically, but mentally. I’m in a really good place and understand the game better than I ever have.

“I just want to get on the ball and make stuff happen whether that’s with goals or assists.”
The win over Tottenham leaves them three points behind fourth placed Arsenal and just two behind Manchester United, with two games in hand.
Kane continued: “The top four has to be our ambition. We are not the finished article yet but the manager has had time to settle in and physically, I think we are in a really good position.
“We are in there and in the mix and we have to feel that pressure, if we want to be a top team. We can’t hide from that.”
