Harry Kane vs Chelsea
Tottenham striker Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game at Wembley on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg against Chelsea.
Kane drilled a low penalty past Kepa Arrizabalaga in the 27th minute.
Kane has now scored 160 goals for Tottenham. That is one more than Spurs club legend Cliff Jones, which has moved Kane into fourth in the all-time scoring charts.
Martin Chivers is in third spot in the Tottenham’s goal scoring list with 174 goals.
For the record, Tottenham’s all-time leading scorer is Jimmy Greaves with 266 goals.

Chelsea ‘proved’ Harry Kane was offside
Should Tottenham have been awarded a penalty against the Pensioners?
VAR was called upon after there was a doubt whether Kane was offside before Kepa took him out in the Blues box.
VAR decided that Kane was onside before the foul, thus the spot-kick was awarded.
However Chelsea didn’t agree with that decision.
In a forewarning of the problems which may come into the game once VAR is in operation in the Premier League next season, Chelsea’s computer analysts indicated that VAR got the Kane offside call wrong.
In an eye-catching scene after the game, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was shown a replay of the Kane incident on a laptop.
Sky Sports’ TV cameras recorded the incident, as Sarri revealed Chelsea’s footage which ‘proved’ Kane was offside.
