Greaves’ record is broken when Harry Kane wins for Tottenham

He is not only one goal away from surpassing Greaves, but he also needs one more in the league to become the third player in Premier League history to score 200 goals, joining Wayne Rooney and Alan Shearer.

When his Tottenham Hotspur team defeated Fulham 1-0 on Monday in the Premier League, Harry Kane scored the game-winning goal, making him the team’s all-time leading scorer.

At Craven Cottage, Tottenham had been second-best in the first half, but on the eve of halftime, Kane scored his trademark goal to score his 266th goal for the Londoners.

With his effort, Kane tied Jimmy Greaves, who scored 266 goals in 379 games. Kane, captain of England, reached the milestone in 415 games.

Prior to Kane’s right-footed goal, Fulham outplayed them, and Harrison Reed, Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Willian all came close to giving the hosts the lead.

After the break, Kane even had a chance to break the record, but he shot straight at Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Tottenham’s hopes of making the top four were revived by the victory, which put them in fifth place with 36 points, three behind Manchester United and Newcastle United, who have both played fewer games.

With 31 points, Fulham remains in seventh place. Despite Tottenham’s recent extreme inconsistency, Kane has scored 16 league goals this season, making him the most consistent scorer.

He is not only one goal away from surpassing Greaves, but he also needs one more in the league to become the third player in Premier League history to score 200 goals, joining Wayne Rooney and Alan Shearer.

After Tottenham’s defeats to Arsenal and Manchester City, Kane told Sky Sports, “It was a tough game, a critical three points for us today.” A tough week, but a good 1-0 win and a clean sheet.

When Fulham, who had the potential to finish fifth, was in charge, things didn’t look good for Tottenham in the beginning.

Hugo Lloris made a quick save after Reed’s close-range volley and stopped Andreas Pereira’s free kick.

When Aleksandar Mitrovic was in a good position, he shot wide, and Tottenham’s lack of confidence was obvious when they kept giving the ball away.

However, when Son Heung-min found Kane on the edge of the area in first-half extra time, the striker was only thinking about one thing. He scored with his right foot inside the post after gaining space with a few touches.

Despite Fulham’s best efforts, Tottenham performed significantly better in the second half.
