Harry Kane’s 27th minute penalty against Chelsea last night was not only significant in terms of it giving Tottenham Hotspur a 1-0 lead going into the second leg of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge.

The goal also moved the striker to fourth in Tottenham’s all-time list of goalscorers. Going into the Chelsea match, Kane was in joint-fourth position with Welsh wing wizard Cliff Jones on 159 goals.

His penalty has now taken him to 160 goals in 243 appearances and now needs just 15 more goals to overtake Martin Chivers in third place. Chivers scored 174 goals in 367 appearances between 1968-76.

Jimmy Greaves tops the list with an impressive 266 goals in 379 appearances. Jones played with Greaves, Bobby Smith and Martin Chivers and believes that Kane can outscore them all and take top spot for himself.

Kane’s goalscoring exploits are certainly impressive for a “one season wonder” and we certainly believe he can cement his place in Spurs history.
