Carragher: This Tottenham player will be the best in PL in 10 years time
By Richard Parks
Jamie Carragher has predicted that Harry Kane will be the best striker in the Premier League for the next 10 years.
The high-profile pundit and Liverpool legend made the stunning claim about the Tottenham talisman as he named his fantasy best Premier League XI of 2017.
Carragher named three Spurs players in his team, including Kane and all-Belgium centre-back pairingToby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.
“Alderweireld last season was the outstanding centre-back,” Carragher explained in the Telegraph. “Alongside him, Belgium team-mate Vertonghen was not far behind.”
Kane makes up the triumvirate of Mauricio Pochettino players in the Sky Sports pundit’s team following his remarkable run of goalscoring this year.

The England international has won the Premier League golden boot in the last two seasons and is on course to land the coveted accolade again in 2017-18 after his astonishing scoring feats in September.
“We are three or four years in now and I think we will be saying the same in 10 years about him being the main striker in the Premier League,” Carragher said.
Kane has scored 11 goals in nine Spurs matches in all competitions this season and his tally for the club now reads at 110 goals from 174 games.
He has also added 12 goals in 23 England appearances.
Carragher’s Premier League XI for 2017: David de Gea (Manchester United); Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Alderweireld (Tottenham), Vertonghen (Tottenham, Marcos Alonso (Chelsea); N’Golo Kante (Chelsea), Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool); Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Kane (Tottenham), Eden Hazard (Chelsea).
