Kane wants to be the best

Harry Kane accepts he must adapt to being treated differently by defenders if he is to become a top striker.

After a superb 2014-15 season, Kane made a slow start to the current campaign but he has since made up for it with 24 times in all competitions and he is currently the Premier League's joint top-scorer alongside Leicester's Jamie Vardy with 19 goals.

Opposing teams target the England striker after his breakthrough season but he admits that is par for the course and is happy to adapt if it means he because one of the world's best strikers.

"There was a lot of talk at the start of the season but the top players in the world find a way to get around (challenges) and score 20 or 30 goals, season after season," Kane said.

"I want to be one of the top strikers and I know I have to find ways to score goals that are different from last season because there is probably more attention than there was last year.

"Defenders get tighter this year. Whenever I get in a position to shoot, there are two or three people trying to block the shot.

"That's one of the little things I've noticed and I definitely see little differences from last season. If you want to be a player scoring goals every year in the Premier League, you have to be able to cope with that."
