Tottenham Hotspur’s star striker, Harry Kane, has achieved yet another Premier League milestone by reaching 250 goals and assists combined in the competition. Kane accomplished this feat with his penalty goal against Everton, just minutes after being slapped by Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Following the red card drama at Goodison Park, Michael Keane fouled Cristian Romero inside the box, giving the visitors a spot kick. Kane was once again trusted to finish the job from the spot and he thumped his effort past Jordan Pickford. This was his 24th goal of the season across all competitions and saw him reach a superb landmark for goal contributions.
Only five players have scored and assisted more than Kane, who has 205 goals and 45 assists, in the history of the Premier League. Alan Shearer holds top spot with 260 goals and 65 assists, while Wayne Rooney (311), Frank Lampard (279), Ryan Giggs (271), and Andy Cole are also ahead of Kane. Earlier in the season, the striker became Spurs’ all-time record scorer, and he continues to show his true class in front of goal as England’s captain.
Kane would have thought his goal would be enough to seal an important win, but Spurs’ work was undone in the latter stages. Second-half substitute Lucas Moura was shown a straight red card for his dangerous challenge on Michael Keane. The Everton defender did not look too fazed though as he scored a screamer just minutes later to seal a well-deserved point. Such a strike could be huge in their hopes of surviving the drop this season, with the Toffees now out of the relegation zone.
For Tottenham, their quest for a top-four finish has taken a hit with nine games left to play. The manager-less north London side sits fourth and is level on points with fifth-placed Manchester United, but the Red Devils have two games in hand.
Kane’s achievement is a testament to his consistency and skill as a striker. He has been a key player for Tottenham for many seasons, and his contribution to the team’s success cannot be overstated. With his impressive goal-scoring record, Kane has cemented his place as one of the best players to have graced the Premier League.
As the season draws to a close, Kane will be looking to continue his impressive form and help Tottenham secure a top-four finish. With his eye for goal and ability to create chances for his teammates, he will undoubtedly play a crucial role in the team’s success. Tottenham fans will be hoping that Kane can continue to break records and lead the team to glory in the coming seasons.
