The stat which proves Tottenham’s Harry Kane deserves to be spoken about as one of the world’s best strikers

It’s been beyond reasonable doubt for a long time that Harry Kane is a world class striker.

His movement, passing ability and goals elevate him into that elite bracket, however, it does sometimes appear that the Tottenham man doesn’t get the credit that he deserves.

The North London outfit have been the grateful recipients of his services and it’s safe to say now that he’s paid them back many times over.

Indeed, there’s one particular stat that evidences just how good he is.

His goal against Ludogorets in the Europa League has taken him to 200 for the Lilywhites. What’s more, it was his 100th away goal and all of those strikes have come in just 300 appearances.

He’s become the third Spurs player to reach the mark, and Kane is now just nine goals from passing Bobby Smith in second place.

He’ll take a while to reach Jimmy Greaves’ 266, but the way in which he’s playing, you wouldn’t bet against him doing so, and perhaps going on to reach a total that may never be beaten.
