Harry Kane: Tottenham striker scores 200th Premier League goal and overtakes Jimmy Greaves as Spurs top scorer | Soccer News

Harry Kane scored the winner against Manchester City to become Tottenham’s all-time top goalscorer, reaching 200 Premier League goals in the process – but how did he pull off those feats?

Kane is now just eight goals behind Wayne Rooney in the all-time Premier League goalscoring chart and is trailing Alan Shearer’s record 260.

The graph below reveals that Kane’s strike rate has always lagged slightly behind Shearer’s, but he recently overtook the former Newcastle striker and now matches his returns after the same number of games.

The 2017/18 season was Kane’s most successful campaign to date, scoring 30 Premier League goals and converting 11 more in other competitions – but the forward is on track to achieve similar returns this quarter if it maintains its current ratio.

Three times Golden Boot

Despite hitting a career-high 30 Premier League goals in the 2017/18 season, Mohamed Salah propelled the England striker to the Golden Boot with 32. To date, Kane has collected three Golden Boots, in 2015/16, 2016/17 and in 2020/21.

In all competitions, Kane has scored 165 goals for Spurs with his preferred right boot and scored a further 100 with his left foot and headers combined, in nearly equal measure – while around one in 10 goals have been taken from outside the surface.

Levy blocks Kane transfer to Man City

Kane was keen on a successful move to Manchester City before the start of the 2021/22 season and claimed he had a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to sanction the move – but Levy has blocked the offer and Kane remained with Spurs.

The striker looks to be getting more and more dangerous over 90 minutes, with his goalscoring ratio increasing over 15-minute intervals until he hits the peak of his powers at the start of the second half and in the final 15 minutes of games .
