Golden Boot recipient, Lionel Messi’s total tally of 47 club goals leads all players in the top-five European leagues this year.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani follows closely behind with 46 while Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski took his total to 41 on Wednesday in his team’s Champions League win against Anderlecht.

Kane has found the net a further seven times this calendar year while on international duty for England – including two against Malta in a 4-0 World Cup qualification win – to bring his total to 47.

The striker reached the milestone when he stabbed in a cross from Dele Alli in the 74th minute to deny West Brom of their first league win since August.

The 24-year-old has scored 30 Premier League goals in 2017, including three hat-tricks and four goals against Leicester in May.

Kane now has eight league games left in the season to attempt to set a new Premier League record.

Alan Shearer netter 36 league goals for Blackburn Rovers in 1995 – a total that is yet to be beaten in the Premier League.
