Harry Kane - the numbers game

Posted on 27 December 2017  - 13:15

As records tumbled, one huge Club milestone was somewhat overlooked as Harry Kane completed a year to remember with a hat-trick in our 5-2 win against Southampton on Boxing Day.

Harry's eighth treble of the year took him to 123 goals for Spurs - leapfrogging Robbie Keane (122) into our all-time top 10 goalscoring list. He's just a goal behind Teddy Sheringham in ninth.

As we racked up a fourth win in five over the festive period, Harry's goalscoring exploits have been well-documented - he's set a new record mark of 39 Premier League goals in a calendar year and his hat-trick against the Saints took him beyond Lionel Messi's 54 and to the top of goalscorers for club and country across Europe on 56.

Here are the numbers...
