Harry Kane: Tottenham striker nets 200th Premier League goal and overtakes Jimmy Greaves as Spurs' all-time scorer

England captain is now just eight goals shy of Wayne Rooney in the all-time Premier League goal chart and 60 behind Alan Shearer; Kane overtook Jimmy Greaves as Tottenham's all-time top scorer with 267; 2017/18 remains his most prolific season to date


Harry Kane netted the winner against Manchester City to became Tottenham's all-time top scorer, reaching 200 Premier League goals in the process - but how did he achieve the feats?

Kane is now merely eight goals shy of Wayne Rooney in the all-time Premier League goal chart and is hunting down Alan Shearer's record of 260.

The chart below reveals Kane's strike-rate has historically lagged slightly behind that of Shearer's, but he has recently overtaken the former Newcastle striker and now matches his returns after the same number of games.

The 2017/18 season was Kane's most fruitful campaign to date, scoring 30 Premier League goals and converting 11 more in other competitions - but the striker is on course to hit similar returns this term if he maintains his current ratio.

Three-time Golden Boot winner

Despite hitting a career-high 30 Premier League goals during the 2017/18 season, Mohamed Salah pipped the England striker to the Golden Boot with 32. To date, Kane has collected three Golden Boots, in 2015/16, 2016/17 and in 2020/21.

In all competitions, Kane has netted 165 goals for Spurs with his favoured right boot and scored another 100 with his left foot and headers combined, in almost equal measure - while roughly one goal out of 10 has been fired from outside the box.

Levy blocks Kane move to Man City

Kane was keen on a blockbuster move to Manchester City before the start of the 2021/22 season and claimed he had a 'gentleman's agreement' with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to sanction the move - but Levy blocked the bid and Kane stayed with Spurs.

The striker appears to become increasingly dangerous over 90 minutes, with his goal ratio rising across 15-minute intervals until hitting the peak of his powers at the start of the second half and in the final 15 minutes of games.
