Kane eclipses Rooney and Henry to set Premier League record

Harry Kane Tottenham 2020-21

Harry Kane's blistering first-half performance for Tottenham against West Ham has seen Premier League records tumble as the England skipper notched up two goals and an assist inside the opening 20 minutes.

The 27-year-old forward helped Spurs open their account inside a minute with an excellent long ball from inside his own half to find Son Heung-min out wide on the left, with the South Korean star cutting back into the box to curl a low effort past Lukasz Fabianski.

Son returned the favour only seven minutes later to tee up his team-mate just outside the visitors' penalty area, whereuponhe slid the ball between fellow Three Lions manDeclan Rice's legs before rifling a tidy finish in at the left post.

Kane then capped off ascintillating opening act when he doubled his tally just beyond the quarter-hour mark, rising to meet Sergio Reguilon's exquisite cross at the right post and head home.

The finish elevated the forward into esteemed company as he became the first man in almost a decade to notch up double figures in goal involvements after just the first five games of a Premier League.

With 12 in total (five goals, seven assists), he exceeded the previous records setbyManchester United's Wayne Rooney in 2011-12 and Arsenal's Thierry Henry in 2004-05.

His second goal also gave Tottenham their quickest three-goal haul in a top-flight game for over 13 years, when they clocked up three finishes inside the first 14 minutes against Derby County in August 2007.
