Harry Kane is the best striker in the world, according to former Chelsea and England forward Chris Sutton.

The Spurs captain has been inspirational to his team's remarkable form this season as they top the Premier League after nine matches.

The 27-year-old was instrumental in helping Spurs defeat 2-0 Man City in an entertaining league match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And Sutton believes Kane's show of brilliance under Jose Mourinho ranks him as the best striker in the round leather game.

Sutton said:

"Harry Kane is the most complete forward in the world... his performances so far this season have given Tottenham a genuine shot at the Premier League title."

The 1995 Premier League winner with Blackburn believes the north London club have the credentials to become champions of England.

Mourinho's side have beaten top teams like City and a 6-2 demolition on Man United at Old Trafford but lost their only fixture in the league to Everton on matchday 1.

The Lily Whites have another litmus test to their title credentials against their London rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their next game.
