Boxing Day stats - 16 unbeaten, Harry sets record in Premier League
Tue 27 December 2022, 11:30|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane has set another goalscoring record - he's now the Premier League's all-time record goalscorer on Boxing Day after his brilliant header in our comeback draw at Brentford.
The striker did what he does best, timing his leap and connection to perfection to meet Clement Lenglet's cross and power his header past David Raya after we'd trailed 2-0 at the Gtech Community Stadium.
That made it 2-1 on 65 minutes and the comeback was on against a Brentford side that hadn't lost any of their matches after going ahead in the Premier League, winning 13 of 16. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's calm finish six minutes later brought us level and we had the chances to win - Harry later struck the crossbar while both Davinson Sanchez and Heung-Min Son tested Raya.
Harry's goal took him one ahead of Robbie Fowler on 10 goals on Boxing Day, and he's now struck in all seven of his Premier League appearances on 26 December, the longest such run in the competition's history.
That wasn't all - the goal against the Bees means Harry has scored a goal against every Premier League team he's ever faced, a run now up to 32 teams.
Meanwhile, the team's unbeaten run goes back to 2003, our last defeat on 26 December, a 2-0 loss at Portsmouth. Since then, we've reeled off 12 wins and four draws in 16 matches, scoring 40 goals and conceding only 10 in that run.
We've played 26 times on Boxing Day in the Premier League era, winning 15, drawing eight and losing just three.
