Harry Kane draws level with Jimmy Graves as Tottenham lead Fulham at halftime

Kane’s prototypical strike just before halftime sent Tottenham into the dressing room with a 1-0 lead, with the England striker’s legacy in north London now on the cusp of reaching heights some may never have anticipated

Harry Kane continues to prove that he is capable of becoming arguably the greatest striker in Premier League history after putting Tottenham Hotspur FC ahead late in the first half against current top-six rival Fulham at Craven Cottage, with the London native now level with the late Jimmy Greaves for the club’s all-time goal record.

The star England frontman scored a prototypical goal that we have seen time and again from Spurs talisman when he found space just outside the top of the box before hitting a well-struck bending effort low into the far corner past former Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno, to see him climb to 266 goals across all competitions for Tottenham, with Kane guaranteed to set a new historic marker for the club this season.

To build on said legacy, that goal was also Kane’s 199th in the Premier League during what is his 300th appearance in the top flight of English football, and just one goal away from becoming only the third player in league history to reach 200 goals behind Alan Shearer (260) and Wayne Rooney (208).

With speculation that Kane could remain at Tottenham past the summer and extend his terms in north London, there is every chance that Kane could well be after the league’s all-time goal record to cement his legacy as arguably England’s greatest-ever striker.
