Harry Kane needs just one more goal to break Mo Salah’s Premier League record

Harry Kane needs to score just one more goal in Tottenham’s two remaining matches to clinch the record of having scored in the most number of games in a single Premier League season.

While Spurs’ season has gone from bad to worse over the past few months, Kane has continued scoring prolifically, demonstrating just why he is one of the most sought-after strikers in the world.

The 29-year-old has already clinched some big records over the course of this campaign, including becoming Tottenham’s and England’s all-time leading goalscorer.

The centre-forward now has another big record in his sights, needing just one more goal to surpass Mohamed Salah as the player who has scored in the most number of matches in a single season.

Kane’s penalty against Aston Villa, which took his tally to 27 Premier League goals this season, means that the striker has scored in 24 different league matches, equaling Salah’s record in the 2017-18 campaign.

Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that Kane has scored 27 goals in 24 different matches is quite extraordinary and demonstrates how consistent he has been this season.

It also shows that he is the opposite of a ‘stad-padder’, which is a term that better applies to players like Haaland who cash in when their side is dominating against an opposition that is already down and out by bagging a hatful in those matches.
