Kane overtakes Greaves as Spurs’ all-time top scorer

Harry Kane says he has “plenty of goals to come” after moving ahead of Jimmy Greaves by a goal to become Tottenham’s all-time top scorer.

The Spurs vice captain scored his 267th goal for club in their 1-0 defeat of Manchester City.

29-year-old Kane, now wants to surpass Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League record of 260 goals.

 Kane’s finish in Sunday’s game against City was typically well taken, fired in low after he had been set up by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the box.

At the moment Kane is the third-highest scorer since the Premier League was formed in 1992 after Shearer and Wayne Rooney, who scored 208 times.

He has scored 17 league goals this season and 19 in total for Spurs, 11 more than the club’s next highest scorer, Son Heung-min.

Kane is also just one goal away from becoming the leading all-time goalscorer for England as he is tied on 53 with Rooney.

His team-mates mobbed him after the final whistle before the player addressed supporters in an interview on the pitch.

While there was a message of congratulations from the late Greaves’ son Danny.

Manager Antonio Conte, who missed the game after having surgery to remove his gallbladder called Kane and the Italian was heard saying “you make me proud”.
