Harry Kane: Tottenham striker linked with Bayern Munich and Manchester United

Harry Kane and Steven Fletcher were among the statistical stars of the weekend, with Wayne Rooney and Gareth McAuley among the strugglers.

Tottenham striker Kane shone with a hat-trick in Spurs’ 5-1 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday – a win which secured the joint-highest points haul in the TEAMtalk Power Rankings this week.

Sunderland forward Fletcher, meanwhile, was among the goalscorers in Sunderland’s 3-0 win over North-East rivals Newcastle, while England captain Rooney’s poor form continued with an underwhelming display in the Manchester derby.
