Five of the best from Tottenham's top scorer Kane
Harry Kane has become Tottenham's top scorer of all time — surpassing Jimmy Greaves' tally of 266 strikes.
He reached the milestone against Manchester City by tapping home past a helpless Ederson, sealing a 1-0 home win against the league champions.
The 29-year-old hotshot's latest landmark follows the England captain becoming the joint-top scorer for the Three Lions, equalling Rooney’s total of 53 goals, at the World Cup in Qatar.
In the Premier League, only Wayne Rooney (208) and Alan Shearer (260) have netted more times than Kane.
As the records continue to tumble, we take a look back at the greatest club goals for Tottenham's No10.
Chelsea (January 2015)
This goal showcased many of Kane’s qualities, while also making a major signal of intent for Mauricio Pochettino’s burgeoning side.
At home against the Premier League leaders Chelsea, who would go on to win the title that season, Tottenham beat their rivals 5-3 on New Year’s Day in 2015.
Kane scored twice in that win and his first goal was rather special. Picking up the ball with his back to goal on the left flank, he started a weaving run infield which saw him have the skill and strength to evade three challenges.
When he arrived in a central area from which he could shoot, the deadly finisher drilled the ball in the direction from which he had just came and it flew into the bottom corner of Thibaut Courtois’ net.
Crystal Palace (March 2021)
Kane has a superb record in London derbies and he was the architect of a 4-1 defeat of Crystal Palace in March 2021, as he set up two goals for Gareth Bale, before scoring a brace himself.
The first of his two goals was one of his greatest for Spurs. Scored in an empty Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during the coronavirus crisis, it had the look of a training ground effort, as much for the audacity of the strike, as the bleak surroundings.
From the right corner of the penalty area, Matt Doherty pulled the ball back to the nearby Kane, who was lurking outside the box.
The former Millwall and Leicester loanee hit it first time with the inside of his right foot, to send it curling into the top-left corner. The greatest compliment that you can give this goal from a Spurs perspective, is that it brought back memories of Glenn Hoddle.
Wolves (December 2018)
Another goal that Kane scored from a similar area was one against Wolves, in which he employed a totally different skillset.
Tottenham eventually lost this game 3-1, at a time when they were playing their home matches at Wembley Stadium, after Kane’s spectacular goal had given them a first-half lead.
A swift ball from Heung-Min Son found the prolific marksman in a pocket of space between the Wolves’ midfield and defence. He ran with the ball to the right of the penalty box and then slowed to allow Willy Boly to catch up with him.
Kane then deftly turned inside, to leave Boly floundering and create space for a shot from outside the area. He struck the ball with his left foot, sending a powerful effort into the opposite top corner.
Juventus (July 2019)
Of all the great goals that Kane has scored for Spurs, one of the very best does not actually count in the official statistics.
He struck a tremendous effort in a pre-season friendly back in July 2019, when the North Londoners met Juventus in the International Champions Cup in Singapore.
With the score tied at 2-2 in the 92nd minute of the game, Pochettino's outfit won back possession in the centre-circle and the ball rolled forward to Kane, who was just inside the opposition half.
Without even looking up, the marksman hit a first-time lob that flew over the former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and into the net. He did not need to see to know where the Polish stopper would be positioned and where the goal was.
Arsenal (March 2016)
Kane has often been criticised for not delivering on the big occasion for Spurs, but the stakes could not have been much higher in this North London derby at White Hart Lane.
In March 2016, Tottenham were second in the table and trying to chase down the Premier League leaders Leicester. A win against an Arsenal team in third would have sent them top.
With the score at 1-1 in the 62nd minute, Dele Alli back-heeled a ball drifting towards the corner flag, which found Kane by the left touchline. He moved inwards and from the edge of the box, at a very tight angle, bent the ball towards the far post.
It hit that post and went in. Not for the last time, the Spurs defence would let their star striker down that afternoon, but when it comes to his greatest goals for the club, this is the perfect mix of quality of finish, opposition and occasion.
