Harry Kane overtakes Thierry Henry in PL goalscoring charts with stunner in Spurs v Everton

Harry Kane was in fine form in Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League clash against Everton on Monday evening.

Spurs raced into a two-goal lead inside 17 minutes, with Michael Keane (own-goal) and Son Heung-min on the scoresheet.

Kane then got in on the act just before half-time as he finished with aplomb when one-on-one with Jordan Pickford.

Sergio Reguilon was introduced at half-time and he scored within a minute of coming on.

Kane then made it 5-0 with a stunning volley. Matt Doherty produced a peach of a ball and Kane’s finish with his left-foot was just exquisite. Watch it below…

With that goal, Kane overtook Thierry Henry in the Premier League goalscoring charts.

He’s now scored 176 Premier League goals, one more than the legendary Frenchman recorded during his two stints with Arsenal.
