Kane hits another major milestone with goal against West Brom

Harry Kane has moved up to second in Tottenham’s all-time goalscoring charts following his strike in the 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon. 

The England captain made a surprise return to the team, having initially been ruled out for a number of weeks with an ankle injury. 

He scored seven minutes into the second half, getting to the end of a Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s pass to beat the goalkeeper and set his side on the path to an important victory.

His return also coincided with Spur's turn in fortunes as they picked their first win in four matches to move above Chelsea into seventh in the Premier League standings. 

The goal means Kane has now scored 208 goals in 317 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham, making him the joint-second highest scorer in the club’s history alongside Bobby Smith, who had exactly the same record.

Kane is however some way off from beating the club's all-time record scorer Jimmy Greaves, who scored 266 goals in 379 appearances between 1961 and 1970.

Speaking after the match, coach Jose Mourinho heaped praise on the striker, backing him to break all records. 

“Harry Kane is a special player in the history of the club. He will beat every possible record.”
