The man has come a long way ever since making his debut for Tottenham Hotspur. Harry Kane made his senior appearance for the Lilywhites under Andre Villas-Boas.
Even when the England and Tottenham Hotspur forward isn’t having the best spell of his career, you can always back him to score goals. Once dubbed a one-season wonder, Kane has been banging the goals in for club and country since breaking through at Tottenham and he has seen a number of records tumble along the way.
Over the years, many big stars left White Hart Lane for pastures new, barring the star striker, who is still fighting for glory on the big stage. Since his debut, Harry Kane has powered Spurs to a Champions League final, a second-place finish in the Premier League and more such highs.
Irrespective of all the highs and lows in his career, Kane has rightfully achieved legendary status and set records that other players could only dream of.
Tottenham’s all-time top goal scorer
Regarded one of England’s best strikers, Jimmy Greaves led the Tottenham Hotspur goal-scoring charts for over a half-century. The forward’s composure and calmness in front of the goal saw him score an unbelievable 266 goals in 379 appearances for the club.
Of course, it was none other than Harry Kane who eclipsed Greaves’ 53-year-old long-standing record to become Tottenham Hotspur’s top scorer of all time when he recently bagged his 200th Premier League goal.

Most goals for a single Premier League club
England national football team captain Harry Kane has now scored 200 league goals in his Tottenham Hotspur career, a record for the most Premier League goals for a single club.
Interestingly, Kane’s record-breaking 185th goal was also his 250th career goal for Tottenham Hotspur across all competitions. Sergio Aguero, Manchester City’s all-time record goalscorer in history, previously held the record for most Premier League goals for a single club.
Tottenham’s all-time top Premier League & European goalscorer
Harry Kane might not have won any trophies as a Tottenham player, but his record speaks for itself. He has time and again delivered match-winning performances for Spurs and has acquired legendary status. After scoring twice against Everton in 2018, he overtook Teddy Sheringham as Tottenham’s all-time Premier League top scorer.
He currently has scored more than 250 goals for the North London club. Kane is also by far Spurs’ highest goalscorer in Europe. He is followed by Jermain Defoe, who has 23 goals for Spurs in European competitions.

Most away Premier League goals
It was only March 2022 when Kane broke this record but his goal against Brighton gave Kane the outright most away goals (95) in the Premier League. Wayne Rooney had previously held the record with 94 but Kane surpassed that record in over 100 fewer appearances and with a few years at the top level ahead of him. Adding even more since then, Kane should have no problem in adding to that tally.
Most Premier League goals in a calendar year
Harry Kane broke Alan Shearer’s record for the most Premier League goals in a single calendar year on 26th December 2017. Spurs were playing Southampton when Kane scored in the 22nd minute of the game. It was his 37th Premier League goal, breaking Shearer’s 22-year-old record of 36 goals in 1995. Kane ended up scoring a hat-trick in that match, ending the year with 39 goals in the Premier League.
Most Premier League Player of the Month awards
Although they aren’t the biggest of individual awards, the amount of Premier League Player of the Month a footballer wins can be used as a measurement of their success and quality. Kane has won Player of the Month a total of seven times, receiving the award multiple times.
Most competitive goals for England
Harry Kane broke Rooney’s record of most goals for England in competitive football. He scored a hat-trick in England’s 5-0 win over Albania in a World Cup qualifying game. Before this, he was just one goal away from equaling Rooney’s record of 37 goals.
He took his tally to 39 goals after this game. He achieved this feat on 13th November 2021. Despite not having a great season for Tottenham, the Englishman put on a great show for his national team. In the next game against San Marino, Kane scored four goals for his side in a stunning 10-0 victory, taking his count to 43 goals.
England’s joint-top scorer in major tournaments
Another record where Harry Kane went past Alan Shearer. In the Euro 2020 semi-finals against Denmark, Kane scored from a penalty save by Danish captain Kasper Schmeichel. That goal took his tally to 10 for England at major tournaments. England ended up winning that game 2-1 and reached the final of that competition.
England reached the final of a major tournament for the first time in 55 years. Unfortunately, they lost the showpiece to Italy. He shares this record with Gary Linker. Linker ended with 10 goals in 18 matches, while Kane equalled this record in 16 games.
Has scored against all his Premier League opponents
Harry Kane is the only player to have scored against all the opponents he has faced in the Premier League. He stands as the sole striker to have netted against all 30 teams that he has played against. He achieved this feat after scoring against Leeds United in a 3-0 win for Spurs. His favourite opponents are Leicester City. He has scored 16 goals in 13 league appearances against them.
He also scored against Middlesbrough in the one match he played against them. The English forward is still far behind Frank Lampard’s record of scoring against 39 different Premier League teams. But, Lampard failed to score against these five teams- QPR, Burnley, Watford, Ipswich Town and Cardiff City. On the other hand, Kane maintains a 100% record of never failing to score against any opponent he has faced in the Premier League.
