How many goals Harry Kane must score to become Premier League’s all-time top-scorer after surpassing Thierry Henry


Harry Kane has continued to climb the Premier League all-time top-goalscorer ranks on Monday.

Kane’s Tottenham are currently locked in Premier League action in north London and things are going very well for Spurs.

Everton started the tie fairly brightly, but were quickly pegged back by the Lilywhites and now look a serious mess.

Michael Keane scored an own goal to open the scoring before Heung-min Son added Tottenham’s second three minutes later.

Then, shortly before half-time, Harry Kane made it three after being put through one-on-one with Jordan Pickford via Matt Doherty:

Can Harry Kane break Alan Shearer’s record?

That goal meant Kane had scored 175 goals across his illustrious Premier League career, which is the same number as Thierry Henry.

However, as Arsenal fan and Opta worker Orbinho was quick to point out, Kane has provided fewer assists and matched the Frenchman’s goal tally in 1,095 more minutes:

But Kane would then break Henry's record later in the Everton game, scoring Spurs' 5th of the day 55 minutes in.

And as Harry Kane is still only 28, it is probably fair to assume that he could have at least another four seasons in the Premier League. So, could the Englishman go on to become the Premier League’s all-time top-scorer? Well, that record is currently held by Alan Shearer, who netted 260 times in the Premier League.

This means Kane would need to score another 84 Premier League goals before he retires. And, provided he does play another four campaigns in England, that would require Kane to score 21 a season to match the record, a figure that will likely be lowered after Kane scores a few more this term.
