The striker still has one game to play this year, against Southampton at home, where he could surpass that mark.
He will also be chasing Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi for the most goals for club and country in 2017. The Argentine has 54 to his name and does not play again until the new year while Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski end 2017 on 53 each, the same as Kane at present.
Here are some staggering stats about Kane’s goal-scoring exploits.
BAGGING MORE THAN THE BAGGIES
With his tally of 36, Kane has more goals in the league than West Brom who have only managed 32 so far.
Kane hit his seventh Premier League hat-trick against Burnley and is still only 24 years old. That’s as many as Wayne Rooney has managed and only four behind leader Alan Shearer.
LOVING LIFE ON THE ROAD
The Spurs striker has scored 50 goals in just 67 away Premier League fixtures, becoming the quickest player to reach that mark. Sergio Aguero is second having taken 85 games.
BETTER GOAL RATIO THAN MESSI
Believe it or not, Kane has the best goal ratio in Europe this year. With 53 goals in just 49 games, he records a 1.08 goals per game ratio. Meanwhile, Messi 54 goals in 64 games at 0.84 goals per game.
The days of calling Kane a one-season wonder are long gone. He now has 21 goals in all competitions already this season, making this his fourth campaign running in which he’s surpassed the 20-goal mark.
The French teenager has enjoyed a stratospheric rise in 2017 and rounded out a memorable year in style by setting up Edinson Cavani to fire PSG ahead on 21 minutes, before adding a goal of his own on the hour.
Spanish left-back Yuri Berchiche netted his first goal for the club since arriving from Real Sociedad as PSG strolled to a 10th straight home league win despite conceding a late Ivan Santini penalty.
Unai Emery's team head into the winter break nine points clear of defending champions Monaco and Lyon, with both of those sides claiming 2-1 wins over Rennes and Toulouse respectively.
"It's a good win to finish with 50 points, but the goal we conceded is something we want to work on after the holidays," Emery said.
Bristol City boss Lee Johnson hailed a “Roy of the Rovers” night for the Championship club after they dumped holders Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup.
Korey Smith’s stoppage-time strike secured a stunning 2-1 victory, as the Championship promotion challengers joined Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in the last-four and drawing a semi-final over two legs against City next month.
Joe Bryan gave City a 51st-minute lead but Zlatan Ibrahimovic equalised shortly afterwards. Then, just when extra-time beckoned, Smith was set free by Matty Taylor and delivered the goods.
United became City’s fourth Premier League scalp in the Carabao Cup this season after they previously sent Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace packing.
“I am super proud,” Johnson said. “It was an unbelievable performance. Every player was eight and nine out of 10, minimum, and probably 10.
“To beat Manchester United at home is a historic occasion, and that Korey Smith goal at the end will live in the memory for many generations.
“I think we took the game to Manchester United. We tried to attack, we tried to hustle. We got at them, we jostled for the ball.
“You don’t beat Manchester United if you are Bristol City unless every single player is doing a man and a half’s job.
“These players now will have a bond forever. A night like tonight will just cement that bond.
“We have beaten four Premier League teams now, and we have got to enjoy tonight. It’s Roy of the Rovers.”
And looking ahead to facing runaway Premier League leaders City, Johnson added: “It is a huge challenge, over two legs, particularly. It will be an enjoyable experience.”

Goal hero Smith, meanwhile, told Sky Sports football: “I joined the club when we were in League One. This year we’ve been absolutely brilliant. The younger players are developing and people are coming into their prime.
“To be in the draw with three of the best clubs in the country, it’s just been unbelievable.”
United boss Jose Mourinho was in philosophical mood after seeing his time undone by Smith’s winner that sent most of a 26,000 crowd into raptures.
“They were a bit lucky, but they fought a lot to be lucky,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“They win the game in a moment where we have no possibilities to react. They win the game in our best moment of the game. They win the game when everyone was waiting for our goal. So I have to say they were a bit lucky.
“Also, in the first-half we hit the post twice before they scored the first goal, but they played brilliantly They fought like this was the game of their life, which probably it was.
“I think a beautiful day for football because a team from a lower division won and got into (the) semi-final. A big day for them and a big day for their supporters, so I congratulate them.
“I don’t want that I say they were a bit lucky to be the main thing of it. They main thing if it is that they won and they fought hard for that.
“In the first-half, we lacked intensity that they had, and when I say intensity I say not just physical, I say also mentally.
“For them, it is a big night, and in this club we know how to win and how to lose, so we lose saying congratulations to them and good luck for the semi-final.”
