Tottenham Icon Harry Kane Closing In On Liverpool Legend’s Premier League Goalscoring Feat

Harry Kane = Goal Machine

Fresh from helping Tottenham topple Inter Milan in the Champions League, Harry Kane is now gunning to lead Spurs to victory over Arsenal in the first North London derby of the season, with just three points separating Kane and his teammates (3rd) form the 4th-placed Gunners.

Kane’s goal in the 3-1 destruction of Chelsea enhanced his overall Premier League tally to 115 goals, putting him 18th on the list - Alan Shearer tops the pile on 260. The goal against the Blues took the England captain to within five goals of another player who skippered his country, Steven Gerrard, who carded 120 top-flight goals for Liverpool.

Gerrard is 17th on the overall list, but 10th if you only include English players, however that position is under severe threat from his fellow countryman Kane, who is closing on Gerard’s tally.

Providing he stays fit during the festive period, Kane has every chance of usurping Gerrard in the top-10 list of English Premier League goalscorers before the year is out. Spurs have seven top-flight games remaining in 2018, starting with Arsenal, then Saints, Leicester, Burnley, Everton, Bournemouth, before rounding off the year at home to Watford.

Given Kane’s impressive record against Arsenal, the striker will be confident of adding to his Premier League goals account at the Emirates on Sunday.

Kane has bagged 25 goals in 39 Premier League London derbies, and seven in his last eight against Arsenal. Should the 25-year-old score this weekend he will move ahead of Robin van Persie in the London Derbies all-time goalscorer chart, and within two goals of Jermaine Defoe. However, Kane still has some way to go to catch Gunners legend Thierry Henry who leads the way with an ultra-impressive 43 goals in 59 capital derbies.
