Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann, Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov and Jermain Defoe. These Tottenham Hotspur favourites are all in the shadow of Harry Kane after his latest goal versus Liverpool.
The England international set a new Spurs record for goals in a Premier League season with 22, by scoring a special and crucial equaliser for Mauricio Pochettino’s side at Anfield this evening.
Kane’s milestone goal means that he has now bagged more than any other Spurs player in a single term since Gary Lineker managed 28 in 1991-92 – the final season before the inception of the Premier League.
And what a quality goal to reach the landmark. The 22-year-old rolled Dejan Lovren superbly and picked out the bottom corner without even having to look up. Two-touch finishes don’t get better than that.
This 63rd-minute strike cancelled out Philippe Coutinho’s 51st-minute opener, but, as it stands, Tottenham are still on course to drop two points in their pursuit of Leicester City at the top of the table.
