ALBION defender Shane Duffy has hailed hotshot Harry Kane as the Premier League’s top striker as he tries to stop him from scoring again.

Duffy and partner Lewis Dunk prevented Kane hitting the target for Tottenham in the Seagulls’ 2-0 defeat at Wembley in December.

Duffy is relishing the opportunity to renew rivalries at the Amex tomorrow night with England captain Kane, who has scored 40 goals in 46 games in all competitions for Spurs.

“I like it, I enjoy it,” the Republic of Ireland international told The Argus. “I think he is the best striker in the league.

“It’s something to look forward to. I enjoyed playing against him at Wembley. I think it’s good to test yourself.

“We’ve played against them all this season now. It’s an exciting one again.”

Kane has 25 goals in the Premier League, five adrift of Liverpool’s Mo Salah, but Duffy still rates him as the best.

He said: “I think he’s got everything. The other ones have certain different things, maybe pace, good in the air, strength, but I think he has got it all. He can do anything and score any type of goal.”

The clash against Spurs also brings Duffy face-to-face again with Christian Eriksen, who wrecked his World Cup dream with a hat-trick for Denmark in the second leg of the play-offs after he put the Irish ahead.

Duffy said: “I thought I’d got rid of him! He’s another one. We had two games against him and in the first one you wouldn’t have thought he was playing.

“And then the second game he is the best player in the world. We’ve got a job to do on him. Those type of players you have got to do a certain kind of job on them. The less of the ball you give them, Dele Alli as well, the lesser chances Harry Kane is going to get.”
