Tottenham striker Kane: Everyone's talking about Haaland

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has welcomed fresh Golden Boot competition from Manchester City's Erling Haaland.

Kane is usually a slow burner due to his patchy August record but this term he has started fast, netting six goals in his opening seven league matches.

However, that has somewhat been overshadowed by striker rival Haaland, who is setting new standards as he looks to blow away Alan Shearer and Mohamed Salah's goalscoring records from an individual campaign.

The England captain said on City's new signing: "Especially in the Premier League when you're coming up against the best strikers, it pushes every player around you to be better.

"Everyone's talking about Haaland because he's had an incredible start to the season, so rightly so. As you know me, I don't focus on too many other people, I focus on myself and what I can do.

"We've had a good start to the season with Spurs, we probably haven't played our best football but that's a good sign to be where we are knowing we can improve. And it's probably one of the best starts I've had in the Premier League."
