Harry Kane joined Sergio Aguero in a 3-man Premier League club with brace vs Nottingham Forest


Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane, on Saturday, etched his name ever further into the history books of English football.

Spurs, and Kane, were of course back in action earlier today.

Fresh off a three-game winless streak across all competitions, Antonio Conte’s troops welcomed Nottingham Forest to north London, desperate for a bounce-back result.

And, when all was said and done, march on to all three points is precisely what the Lilywhites managed.

The aforementioned Kane proved himself the star of the show, notching a first-half brace before Son Heung-min put the finishing touches on a comfortable 3-1 victory just beyond the hour mark.

Owing to Liverpool’s shock defeat to Bournemouth, Tottenham, in turn, have further solidified their place in the Premier League’s top-4.

As alluded to above, though, captain Kane’s double on the day did not only prove significant for the Lilywhites from a collective perspective.

In addition, it marked a milestone one for the England international from an individual standpoint.

Kane’s 2nd versus Forest came as his 20th in the league this season.

This, in turn, saw the 29-year-old establish himself as just the third player in history to score 20 or more goals in six different Premier League seasons.

The other two? Alan Shearer and Sergio Aguero.

Which team has conceded the most goals in a single Premier League season?
