Kane (122) has already overtaken Solskjaer (91) in terms of Premier League career goals, and is this season’s joint top scorer alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The forward has established himself as one of the world’s finest, and interim Manchester United boss Solskjaer has only added to the chorus of praise.
“He’s not bad, is he?” the Norwegian said ahead of Sunday’s showdown at Wembley. It’s our game to watch, actually.
“He’s a fantastic goalscorer, one of the best in the world to play up there, but then again I’ve got a couple I’m happy to work with.
“Having players like him, he’s a top, top professional, whoever plays with him and trains with him can talk more about him but from the outside he’s a fantastic finisher.
“He never misses chances really so let’s make sure he doesn’t get any against us.”
