Harry Kane Breaks Alan Shearer's Premier League Calendar Year Record

2017 has been a hell of a year for Harry Kane and he put an exclamation mark on it by breaking Alan Shearer's 22 year old Premier League record for most goals in a calendar year.

It's only three days ago that Harry Kane looked almost nowhere near breaking Alan Shearer's record of scoring more goals in 52 weeks than anyone else in Premier League history.

The league's top scorer of all time set the record of 36 goals back in 1995 when he was playing for Blackburn Rovers, encapsulating the second half of Rovers Premier League winning season.

But on Saturday Kane scored a hat-trick against Burnley to go level with the Newcastle United legend and with a game against Southampton to go he was favourite to do so.

On Boxing Day it took him just 22 minutes to get the goal he needed, heading home from a Christian Eriksen free kick, to put Spurs 1-0 up.

Alan Shearer was the first to congratulate Kane, followed soon by Gary Lineker:

Spur and England fans up and down the land will be hoping that 2018 is just as good for the 24 year old as he battles for titles for club and country.
