Harry Kane has burst into the Tottenham first team this year to become one of the most in-form strikers in the top flight.

The 21-year-old has been the focal point of the Spurs attack as they push for that coveted Champions League spot and will be all-important in their Sunday afternoon clash against Manchester United.

To put into context exactly how good the youngster's season has been so far, Sky Sports highlighted his form against that of United's Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie - one of the most expensive frontlines ever assembled.

Here's how he stacks up:

Not only has the homegrown Spurs man scored just as many goals as the expensive United trio; he's done it in far fewer appearances and his minutes per goal rate is more than twice as fast.

Old Trafford will play host to Manchester United v Tottenham at 4pm on Sunday. You can follow all the live coverage on the Independent's sport homepage.
