Harry Kane breaks Premier League goal record with header against Wolves

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has broken Sergio Aguero’s record for the most Premier League goals scored for one club.

Kane stooped to head Spurs into the lead in Saturday’s early kick-off against Wolves, after Ivan Perisic did well to flick a poor corner on at the near post.

The goal was Kane’s 185th in the Premier League for Spurs, taking him past the 184 goals that Aguero scored during his time with Manchester City.

Wayne Rooney sits third on the list with 183 goals for Manchester United, Thierry Henry fourth with 175 goals for Arsenal and Alan Shearer fifth – he netted 148 goals of the 260 he scored in the Premier League era for hometown club Newcastle United.

Kane’s Premier League debut for Spurs came during the 2012/13 season, but he didn’t establish himself as a first team regular until 2014/15.

He scored 21 Premier League goals that year, flourishing under Mauricio Pochettino’s management, before scoring 25, 29 and 30 goals in the following three seasons.

He has managed at least 17 goals in every Premier League campaign since, and has three Premier League Golden Boot wins to his name. Kane has also won the Premier League Player of the Month award seven times, most recently in March 2022 – the first time in 51 months that he’d earned the accolade.
