Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane, moved into joint-third place on the all-time Spurs goalscoring charts with his strike against Liverpool on Sunday.

Unfortunately, the goal could not help Tottenham towards a point at Anfield, but at least the first-minute header had personal significance for Kane.

Harry is already the top European goalscorer for Spurs with 28 goals in 53 games, beating Jermain Defoe who previously held the record with 23 (Wikipedia).

Kane has also been the club’s top goalscorer each of the past five seasons, scooping up two PremierLeague golden boots in that time.

However, the hungry Spurs academy graduate will have his eyes on that all-time record and he is certainly getting closer (Wikipedia).

Kane is currently on 174 goals, tied with Martin Chivers, although Harry reached the total in far fewer games (266 compared to 367).

Next up on Kane’s list is Bobby Smith who scored 208 goals in 317 games for the Lilywhites. In my opinion, this could be achievable over the next 12 months.

Finally, Harry will have to chase down club legend Jimmy Greaves, who netted a whopping 266 goals in 379 games for Spurs.

Harry has a while to go yet, but we are backing him to do it!
