Kane bags brace to break Sher­ing­ham’s Spurs record

Sport360 - - Premier League - By Staff Re­porter @Sport360 ed­i­to­rial@sport360.com

Harry Kane ad­mit­ted he might have been off­side for the first of the two goals which made him Tot­ten­ham’s top scorer of the Premier League era last night.

Kane net­ted twice in Spurs’ 4-0 win over Everton at Wem­b­ley, movprompt­ing ing him to 98 Premier League goals and one clear of Teddy Sher­ing­ham.

Both of Kane’s strikes came in the sec­ond half, with the first com­ing when he got a toe on Son He­ung­min’s cross-cum-shot in the 47th minute.

“When he shot I thought it might be go­ing in but luck­ily for me it wasn’t,” Kane said on BT Sport. “I might have been off­side. Some­times you get it, some­times you don’t. Luck­ily it went my way.”

Kane said he was proud of the record but would not dwell on it for long. “It’s what I al­ways say, it’s some­thing I’m very proud of but it’s on to the next one, we’ve got to keep go­ing,” he said. “These boys are great, they set me up and we’ve got to keep go­ing and win­ning games. Hope­fully I’ll keep scor­ing.”

The win keeps Tot­ten­ham in fifth, level with Liver­pool ahead of their match against lead­ers Manch­ester City to­day, and three points be­hind Chelsea af­ter their 0-0 draw with Le­ices­ter.

“When­ever other teams around are drop­ping points you’ve got to be there and to win,” Kane said. “It could have been a tough game but from the start we were re­ally on it and de­served the win.”

Man­ager Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino called it a “mas­sive three points” as Tot­ten­ham bid to break into the top four.

“It was a fan­tas­tic per­for­mance, I’m very pleased, I think we fully de­served this in the end, the vic­tory,” Po­chet­tino said. “I’m so happy be­cause for us it was a game that we must win, a mas­sive three points for us to­day.”

On Kane, he added: “He’s such a tal­ented player, so pro­fes­sional and I’m very happy. Con­grat­u­la­tions to him, he de­serves all the credit and the praise. This way he’s go­ing to break all the records in the Premier League and in Eng­land, and it’s fan­tas­tic be­cause he helps the team ev­ery week.”
