Harry Kane breaks Premier League goalscoring record held by Sergio Aguero
Harry Kane broke a Premier League goalscoring record held by Sergio Augero during Tottenham’s match against Wolves on Saturday.
The England international drew level with the former Manchester City striker with a late header that salvaged a point against Chelsea last weekend...TAP.TO.READ MORE.
After his second half header broke the deadlock against Wolves, however, Kane now stands alone as the leading scorer for a single Premier League club on 185 goals, as he continues to close in on Alan Shearer’s all-time record.
Spurs endured a frustrating opening 45 minutes against Bruno Lage’s side but turned the screw after the re-start as they upped the tempo at the request of Antonio Conte.
Kane had already hit the crossbar with a powerful header but made amends in the 64th minute from unmissable range after Ivan Perisic had flicked on Son Heung-min’s corner at the near post.
Kane celebrated the tenth anniversary of his Premier League debut earlier this week but despite his unwavering excellence he is still to be rewarded with the silverware a player of his stature merits.
The 29-year-old came close to leaving his boyhood club last summer but with Antonio Conte leading a revival with a new-look team, fellow club legend Glenn Hoddle believes and end to Kane’s personal trophy drought is just around the corner.
Most goals for a single Premier League club
Harry Kane – Spurs, 185

Wayne Rooney – Man Utd, 183
Thierry Henry – Arsenal, 175
Alan Shearer – Newcastle, 148
He told BT Sport: ‘It was touch and go whether he was going to go last year. He wants to be a success and rightly so he’s an absolute legend at the club.
‘Go back though and there’s photos on the walls of us holding trophies and stuff. Harry wants that and needs that.
‘He’s a Tottenham man and he’s got the best opportunity with this squad since he’s been here in the first team. I really feel the domestic cups they’ll have as a priority, the Champions League of course as well, but they’ve got a squad here now that is as strong as most people.
‘Not Manchester City and Liverpool maybe but they are up there with everyone else and they compete toe-to-toe with everyone.
‘So I think Harry has a really good opportunity this year to go and get a trophy.’
