By scoring twice against Everton on Saturday Harry Kane joined an exclusive club featuring two Premier League greats according to the Premier League website.

The striker, who scored twice in our 4-0 home victory at Wembley Stadium, moved on to 20 goals for the Premier League season and thus he became only the third player in the competition’s history, after Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry, to score 20+ goals in four consecutive PL campaigns.

The article adds how Shearer, the competition’s leading scorer with 260, scored 20+ goals from 1993/94 to 1996/97 for Blackburn Rovers and, in the final season, Newcastle United.

It adds that Henry achieved the feat for Arsenal from 2001/02 to 2004/05 and the Frenchman, who is the fifth-highest PL scorer, also achieved the feat the following season, becoming the only player to have scored a minimum of 20 goals in five consecutive campaigns.

The article goes on to say that Saturday was a double celebration for Kane as he also became Spurs’ leading PL goalscorer with 98 goals.

His double saw him surpass Teddy Sheringham’s tally of 97 achieved in 236 appearances over the course of two spells at the club with Kane reaching his mark in just 138 outings for Spurs, 98 fewer than Sheringham.
