Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane hit another two goals on Tuesday as Mauricio Pochettino’s side beat Red Star Belgrade 5-0 in the Champions League.
The north Londoners recorded their first win in the competition, bouncing back from the disappointing 1-1 draw with Watford at the weekend.
It was the exact kind of result Spurs needed, especially having lost their last European outing 7-2 to Bayern Munich.
Despite Spurs’ struggles this season, striker Kane has been in decent goalscoring form.
He remains Tottenham’s talisman and he is undoubtedly one of the best in the world at what he does.
Arguably the only man currently better than him is someone he shared the field with only a couple of weeks ago – Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski.
The Poland international, not to be outdone by the Englishman, scored two goals of his own against Olympiacos on Tuesday, and his level is what Kane should aspire to reach.
TBR’s view – Lewandowski should inspire Kane
Lewandowski’s brace means he is now up to 20 goals for the season – a remarkable feat considering the season is still only a few months old.
The star is playing some of the best football of his career, and is arguably the best number nine out there at the moment.
Competitive Kane simply must use Lewandowski’s form to push himself.
The pair are often compared to one another and at the moment, the 31-year-old has the edge.
