And there it is…

Harry Kane made use of his last Premier League game of the year to break a 22-year-old goalscoring record.

The Spurs forward netted his 37th and 38th league goals of 2017 — beating Alan Shearer’s haul of 36 set during his Blackburn years in 1995.

Kane’s first-half double against Southampton at Wembley was took his tally to 55 goals in all competitions for club and country in the calendar year.

Lionel Messi started the day as 2017’s top scorer but the Englishman proved once again he deserves to be considered among the world’s elite goalscorers.

The landmark goal could not have been easier for the predatory 24-year-old.

Spurs won a free-kick just outside the box from a wide angle in the 22nd minute.

Christian Eriksen whipped in a typically inviting delivery, allowing Kane to head home from two yards out.

The free-kick was in a threatening position Eriksen didn’t disappoint Putting the ball in a dangerous area Kane couldn’t miss Cue the celebrations

You have to say, it was rather generous of the visitors to gift wrap such a gift for the double Golden Boot winner.

Kane then doubled Spurs’ lead when he finished off a fine team move.

Dele Alli and Son Hueng-Min both weighted their passes perfectly to open up Southampton’s defence and allow the main man a simple tap-in to stretch out his lead over Shearer.

You’ve had a magnificent 2017 @HKane. You deserve to hold the record of most @premierleague goals in a calendar year. Well done and keep up the good work. 👏🏻🙋🏼‍♂️

Congratulations to @HKane on breaking the record for most Premier League goals scored in a calendar year. Thoughts are with @alanshearer at this difficult time.

Kane’s record of 55 goals in 50 games in 2017 is incredibly impressive.

Those that still claim he isn’t world-class until Spurs win a trophy need to have a long look at themselves.

For England’s sake, let’s hope he achieves something similar in 2018…
