Premier League: Kane becomes Tottenham's all-time top scorer, knocking Manchester City down


The Citizens lose valuable points in the fight for the title, while Arsenal lost on the lawn of Everton this Saturday.

It is a victory which is very expensive for the Spurs.

By winning against Manchester City (1-0), Tottenham temporarily returns to a length of Newcastle, 4th and last virtual qualifier for the Champions League.

A success that also suits their neighbour, the leader Arsenal, beaten at Everton (1-0) on Saturday, which thus retains its five points lead over Manchester City (2nd) with, in addition, one game less.

But the long-awaited event of the day is this record broken by Harry Kane who, with 267 goals in all competitions, surpasses the legend of the 1960s, Jimmy Greaves (266), by becoming the top scorer of the Spurs history.

With his 17th league goal this season, Harry Kane also became the third player to reach 200 goals in the Premier League era.

Mahrez close to equalizing

It was in the 15th minute of the clash of the day that Harry Kane made history.

Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg recovered the ball from Rodrigo's feet at the edge of the box.

Unbalanced, he slid the ball from the outside towards Harry Kane, who only had to cross his recovery to deceive Ederson (1-0, 15th).

A single small goal that allowed the Spurs to win this Saturday.

Riyad Mahrez was however not far from equalizing by touching the crossbar of Hugo Lloris.

But neither the entry of Kevin De Bruyne (59th), nor the second yellow card addressed to Cristian Romero in the 87th called into question the victory of Tottenham.

Next meeting for the Spurs: a trip to Leicester next Saturday.

Pep Guardiola's men will try to catch up against Aston Villa in six days.
