Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane says he will “push on” and set himself a new goals target after reaching 20 for the season against West Brom.
The 21-year-old scored twice in Saturday’s 3-0 win at The Hawthorns, opening the scoring with a powerful right-footed effort before converting a second-half penalty.
He had previously gone four games without a goal in all competitions, a length of time he describes as feeling “like ages”.
However, he returned to his fine goalscoring form in style against West Brom, taking his tally to 10 in the Premier League and 20 in all competitions this season.
“I am really pleased. Twenty goals was my next target after I got 10 and I am happy to be there,” he said.
“I was on 18 for what felt like ages but I am very happy. Hopefully I can push on and get some more now.
“There is still a long way to go and I am really enjoying it at the minute. Hopefully I can continue.”
Kane’s goals have helped Spurs win six of their last eight Premier League games to climb up to fifth in the table, just three points behind third-placed Manchester United.
They could break into the top four next weekend if they win a north London derby with rivals Arsenal.
Spurs are 2.89 to win the derby while a draw is priced at 3.41. Arsenal are favourites at 2.17.
