Shearer holds the record for the Premier League’s top goalscorer record but he also holds the record for the most goals scored against a particular opponent in the league- with his 20 goals against Leeds United.

Three time Golden Boot winner Harry Kane has a total of 19 goals against Leicester, including an impressive 17 in the league. He almost always scores against the Foxes and a hat-trick on Saturday evening will see him equal Shearer’s long standing record.

In what has been an impressive career for Kane so far, he’s only recently equaled Thierry Henry’s tally of 43 goals in London derbies, and is breaking in on Wayne Rooney’s record of 208 Premier League goals.

The Spurs striker has 188 goals and if he continues his red-hot form, he could equal and jump to second on the all-time list by the end of next season.

He however still has work to do when it comes to taking over from Alan Shearer’s impressive 260 Premier League goals.

Under Antonio Conte, Kane has rediscovered his ruthlessness and is looking like a man on a mission to help Spurs return to the summit of English football and continue his personal aim of equaling historic feats.

Tottenham could go top of the Premier League for the first time this season if they beat Leicester later on and despite suffering their first defeat of the campaign at Sporting in midweek, they are unbeaten in the Premier League and have won every home this season.
