Tottenham striker, Harry Kane, is five goals away from becoming the first player to pass 40 in an English season since Cristiano Ronaldo in 2008.

Ronaldo, now 33, scored an amazing 42 strikes in 49 games across all competitions in his penultimate season with Manchester United.

Dutch striker, Ruud van Nistelrooy, holds the record for the most goals in English football since the Premier League was introduced with 44 goals in the 2003/04 season.
