Harry Kane has given Tottenham Hotspur a dream start at Wembley today against Liverpool. Less than five minutes into the match and the Spurs talisman scored a fabulous goal (with a little help from a terrible Simon Mignolet mistake) to give his side the lead.

Kieran Trippier chipped a ball into space, Kane touched it around the Liverpool goalkeeper and finished into the empty net. This his seventh Premier League goal of the season, which is incredible when you realize he opened the campaign with three straight goalless games.

Just five minutes later, Son Heung-Min doubled the lead off a fantastic ball in from Kane. He’s one again proven he’s more than just a goalscorer. Zinedine Zidane said he was a well-rounded striker. Well, you’d be hard pressed to find a better one in the World.
