Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SPORT - BY DAR­REN LEWIS

HARRY KANE fi­nally sees him­self as one of the best strik­ers in the world. The Spurs star smashed his third hat-trick in nine days on Sun­day and reached 100 ca­reer goals. Like Manch­ester United’s Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic, Kane is blow­ing his own trum­pet mid­way through yet another out­stand­ing sea­son. He said: “If you look at my stats, my goals, then I’m up there. If you guys want to print that, I’m more than happy to have that. “I just try to do my best. I like to score goals. I feel in good form.” Since the start of the 2014-15 cam­paign, Kane has scored more goals than Neymar and sought-af­ter An­toine Griez­mann, and the same as Ser­gio Aguero. His 17 goals this sea­son put him top of the Pre­mier League scor­ing charts with Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez – de­spite miss­ing seven weeks of the sea­son with in­jury. The 23-year-old is now fo­cused on re­tain­ing the Golden Boot he won last term, adding: “That in­jury I had ear­lier in the sea­son might have done me a bit of good, get­ting a bit more rest.”
