Harry Kane joins Tottenham’s 100 club.

In what looked to be a tricky away game on Saturday afternoon, Tottenham travelled to Goodison Park to face Everton in the Premier League. It was however far from tricky, with Spurs putting in a dominant performance, cruising to a 3-0 win.

Aside from the result, the main talking point from the game was undoubtedly Harry Kane, the current back-to-back Premier League golden boot winner, finally getting off the mark this season to score a brace and subsequently score his 100th and 101st goals for Spurs, all of which coming in just 169 games which he has played for the club over 6 years. 

With Kane hitting 100 goals in a frighteningly quick amount of time, fans, ex-professionals and journalists have speculated just how many goals Kane can score in the Premier League in his career (hopefully all whilst playing for Spurs). The current record holder for the most amount of goals scored in the Premier League is Alan Shearer, who notched 260 goals in his career which spanned nearly 20 years. Wayne Rooney is second on the list with 200 goals scored, whilst Andrew Cole rounds off the top 3 with 187 goals.

As a result of reaching that landmark goal tally for the club, Harry joins a list of former Spurs players who have gone down as legends of the club.

So, who else is on the list of former Spurs players to hit 100 goals for the club? Take a look at the list below, and let me know how many you think Kane will end up scoring for the club. The statistics below are taken from http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com.

1 – Jimmy Greaves – 1961-70 – 266 goals/379 appearances
2 – Bobby Smith – 1955-64 – 208/317
3 – Martin Chivers – 1968-76 – 174/367
4 – Cliff Jones – 1958-68 – 159/378
5 – Jermain Defoe – 2004-2014 – 143/363
6 – George Hunt – 1930-37 – 138/198
7 – Len Duquemin – 1947-57 – 134/307
8 – Alan Gilzean – 1964-74 – 133/439
9 – Teddy Sheringham – 1992-2003 – 124/277
10 – Robbie Keane – 2002-2011 – 122/306
11 – Les Bennett – 1946-54 – 117/294
12 – Jimmy Dimmock – 1919-31 – 112/438
13 – Glenn Hoddle – 1975-87 – 110/490
14 – Bert Bliss – 1912-22 – 104/215
15 – Billy Minter – 1908-19 – 101/263
16 – Johnny Morrison – 1933-39 – 101/154
17 – Harry Kane – 2011- 101/169

We should never forget just how lucky we are to have a striker of Kane’s quality at the club. In an era where unproven players are being bought and sold for tens of millions of pounds, to have a young, English, proven Premier League goalscorer come through our ranks is an absolutely fantastic feeling as a Spurs fan. It is imperative that we back up Kane’s goals with trophies, or we may see him celebrating his goals for another side sooner rather than later.
