Kane is still improving and has yet to reach his peak performance as a player, says Pochettino
Mauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham striker Harry Kane is continuing to improve as he moves towards a Premier League goalscoring record.

Kane scored his seventh hat-trick in 2017 during Tottenham's 3-0 win against Burnley on Saturday, leaving the England international level with Alan Shearer for most Premier League goals scored in a calendar year on 36.

Tottenham's clash with Southampton on Boxing Day, live on Sky Sports Premier League, is Kane's last opportunity to break Shearer's long-standing record though boss Pochettino is just pleased to see the 24-year old performing at the highest standard.

"Of course the record of Alan is fantastic, he was a fantastic player, but Harry is doing so well," said Pochettino.

"I think Alan was consistently scoring for 10 years. sbobet You need to show massive respect, it was amazing what he did.

"Harry is doing well - to have a player like Harry Kane is fantastic, I hope and I wish that every season he scores 50 or more than 50 [goals]."

Kane, who trails only Teddy Sheringham in Tottenham's all-time leading Premier League scorers list, has recorded 15 goals already this campaign, and Pochettino is convinced the forward is still on an upward curve and yet to reach his peak.

"I think he still can improve," the Tottenham boss added. "At 24 I think the player arrives at their best at 27, 28 or 29 depending on how professional you are.

"But with Harry Kane, if he keeps that mentality and keeps working hard every day in training sessions and never change that mentality, then he can play until he wants to play."


Tottenham's victory at Turf Moor marked their first outing since a comprehensive 4-1 defeat to Manchester City, and Pochettino admits the team must improve their consistency if they want to be competing for major honours each year.

"We cannot think about what is happening with another club [Manchester City]," he said.
"We need to like you say, keep the momentum to try to win again to be consistent if we want to fight in the end for big things.

"But I am sure that the team is focused like we show today, sbobet it was tough and we were weak against City but the team is in a good way."
