Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has achieved a unique feat during the ongoing English Premier League.

According to Opta, Kane became just the second player to score 10 London derby goals in a single Premier League campaign, after Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in 2001-02.

The England international scored a sensational goal from a free kick in the eight minute of today’s Premier League encounter against Brentford at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Kane is also the first player to score in 25 different matches in a 38-game Premier League season.

Speaking before the match, Spurs manager Ryan Mason said that he expects his side to put up a good show during their final match at home this season.

“Energy… obviously, it’s an important game for us, in front of our fans for the last time this season, and we want to bring the energy, try to create a good feeling and get the result,” said Mason.

“It’s the Premier League and you have to be on it for the whole game. Brentford are a very good example of a team who know who they are, and it will be a battle. It will be tough, we will have to work as a team and if we’re going to win, we’re going to have to earn it,” he added.

He also heaped praise on their opponents and expected a tough contest.

“They are a strong team and we’ve felt that when we’ve played them,” added Ryan. “Every game has been close, tough, I remember two draws at their place and a tight match last season here.

“We know the type of game we’re going into, and we have to focus on ourselves, implement our game plan and try to get a result. Every team in this league has strengths, there is so much quality, but we want to home in on who we are and who we want to be and try to create a good feel and energy with our performance.”
