Harry Kane becomes Tottenham's record Premier League goal scorer

Published on: 13 January 2018

Harry Kane scores again against Everton to become Tottenham's all-time leading scorer in the Premier League.

Harry Kane became Tottenham Hotspur's all-time leading goal scorer in the Premier League era in netting two goals in the 3-0 victory over Everton on Saturday.

Kane, 24, scored his brace from close range in the second half to make sure all three points stayed with the home side at Wembley, and took his tally to 98 league goals in just 135 appearances.

The England captain moved past Teddy Sheringham, who netted 97 goals for the North London club. 

Harry Kane celebrates after scoring his second goal of the night.

Kane remains firmly on course to win the Premier League's Golden Boot for a third successive season, with his latest double taking him onto 20 goals for the campaign -- three more than Liverpool's Mohamed Salah. Kane also became only the third player, after Thierry Henry (five seasons) and Alan Shearer (four), to score 20 Premier League goals in four successive seasons.

The striker broke Shearer's Premier League record for goals in a calendar year in 2017, netting 39 times. He also scored a total of 56 goals for club and country -- more than any other player in Europe's top five leagues.
