Leagues Tipped:

HARRY KANE won't win the Ballon D'Or but could claim to be the world's best player in September.

The annual award will go to Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi as always but Kane should be pleased at making the shortlist.

He certainly made short work of defences last month by hitting 13 goals in eight games – and he's started October by netting for England in 1-0 wins against Slovenia and Lithuania.

Kane is back at Wembley today as Spurs welcome Bournemouth and the Cherries should be very afraid.

The England skipper has hit six in four against Eddie Howe's side with Spurs winning them all and hitting 12 goals.

Mauricio Pochettino's men haven't won any of their first three league games at their temporary home while boasting a 100 per cent away record but that should change today.

Spurs will never have a better chance of ending the hoodoo and are a best 2-9 with McBookie. It's not a great price so take Spurs – who had 54 shots in home draws against Burnley and Swansea – to maintain their average against the Cherries by scoring 3+ at 3-4 with Coral.

Kane is no bigger than 9-5 at 188Bet to score first and 4-11 at William Hill to net.

Poor old Crystal Palace still don't have a goal or a point and at this rate will be doomed by Christmas. Roy Hodgson's arrival has changed nothing and Christian Benteke remains sidelined.

Chelsea have won five in a row on the road and it's difficult to make a case for anything but another at 2-5 with McBookie and Ladbrokes.

N'Golo Kante and Alvaro Morata and will be missed but Chelsea should be backed to win to nil at 5-4 with McBookie. Eden Hazard netted for Belgium in midweek and can score again at 10-7 with Unibet.

Another of the big guns, Manchester City, Stoke on the back of eight wins on the spin and a treble on Spurs, Chelsea and City pays no bigger than evens at McBookie.

City are extremely short to win and star striker Gabriel Jesus has been in South America playing for Brazil while Sergio Aguero is recovering after being involved in a car crash and could feature.

However, City's squad has depth and Stoke have lost three out of four on the road so I'm backing the home -1 at 9-20 at sportingbet.

Biggest game of the day is the early kick-off between Liverpool and Man United and again the result could depend on who reacts best after the break.

Both clubs had plenty of players away with Liverpool's Sadio Mane and United's Marouane Fellaini returning injured. Mane's the biggest blow and statistically Jurgen Klopp's men play better with him in the team.

The condition of Philippe Coutinho could be crucial as he travels back from Brazil.

Liverpool's record against top-six teams under Klopp is exemplary and while their defence isn't this could result in a draw that would suit Jose Mourinho better. A stalemate pays 9-4 at Ladbrokes and I expect under 2.5 goals at 41-40 with sportingbet.

Elsewhere in the Premiership I like Burnley to beat West Ham at 9-5 with McBookie while Arsenal look a little short at 4-6 at Watford.

In the Championship back Sheffield Wednesday at rock-bottom Bolton at 21-20 with McBookie and Leeds, evens with McBookie, should see off Cardiff.

Shrewsbury could be best bets at Plymouth in League One and in League Two I like Newport at Forest Green and Luton at home to Stevenage.

    You are right mr f, he won’t win (Kane -balon) it but he bleed in’ should! 7 hatricks this year isn’t it? Better than the usuals and add to that key goals in his side getting qualified for World Cup easily and becoming captain in the mix. Add to that he won your challenge for you and who can argue?!
