Kane motivated by Messi, Ronaldo

Harry Kane says he uses comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as fuel to become a better footballer.

The England global netted a hat-trick in the 3-0 Champions League win over APOEL on Tuesday night to take his tally for the month to nine goals in five games.

And Ferdinand believes Kane, who has 11 goals in all competitions already, must be compared to the very best in the game.

One club that could potentially be looking for a striker is Real Madrid and Kane, according to bookmakers Ladbrokes, is 7/4 favourite to join Los Blancos.

Kane has scored six hat-tricks in 2017, the same as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski (all two) combined.

As a result the England star is top of the Champions League goalscoring charts, but Lloris believes that Kane still has to prove himself on the biggest stage in European football. He has a gap to improve a lot.

United supporters warned over Moscow behaviour
Unlike the last season , United is looking ruthless and plays an attacking game until the end of a match . Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are available after completing one and three-game suspensions respectively.

"Harry has something special in front of the goal and that is why he's one of the best". Harry Kane is one of the best, but the strikers are showing their level every week. He is a striker, a killer, but completely different.

Eriksen is expected to return for Saturday's Premier League match at Huddersfield, leaving Winks and Sissoko to battle for a spot in midfield, while Dembele and Wanyama remain sidelined.

Asked where Kane ranked among the Premier League's best strikers, Pochettino said: It's a tricky question. It is so hard to say who is the best'. However, Serge Aurier is suspended while Mousa Dembele (ankle), Erik Lamela (hip), Danny Rose (knee) and Victor Wanyama are all injured, hence unavailable.

"If he is banned I would prefer for him to stay with us working, rather than be with the national team".

"A big challenge. I think they will be very motivated to play against us and have had the whole week to prepare for the game against Tottenham. We need more information, to speak with the doctor, and then see what happens in the next few weeks".
