Tottenham star Harry Kane has been named as the Premier League’s second best striker behind Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero in a ranking of the top ten forwards in the top flight.
Football magazine Four Four Two delivered the verdict of their list on their website, including a duo of Tottenham stars, with Fernando Llorente coming in at number 10, on a list including the likes of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford and Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata.
However, Kane finishing as runner up to the Argentinian striker will come as a shock to many, considering the form the English international has shown in recent seasons.
He has picked up the Premier League golden boot for two successive seasons, having netted over 20 league goals in each of the last three campaigns.
Last season saw Kane score an impressive 29 goals compared to Aguero’s 20, while the previous campaign the Tottenham star pipped the Manchester City man by just one strike, 25 to 24.
This season has seen both strikers continue their excellent form in front of goal, with Kane leading the pack with eight goals, despite not having netted in the entirety of August, Aguero following close behind on seven.
Llorente meanwhile, who moved to Spurs over the summer after impressing at Swansea in his debut season in England’s top flight, netting 15 times, although he is yet to bag his first goal for the Lilywhites.
In other Tottenham news, fans were left fuming at the performance of this star man at Old Trafford.
