How does Harry Kane compare with other centurions

How does Harry Kane compare with other centurions

Harry Kane reached the 100-goal landmark for Tottenham in 169 games last weekend.

Kane scored the 100th and 101st goals of his Spurs career in a 3-0 Premier League win at Everton and now has Swansea in his sights at Wembley on Saturday (live on BT Sport 1, 5.30pm kick-off).

The 24-year-old England striker is also seeking a different kind of hat-trick this term as he has won the Premier League Golden Boot for the last two seasons.

Here, we look at six others who scored more than 100 goals for one Premier League club and how Kane compares with them.

Alan Shearer

The daddy of Premier League goalscorers with his 260-goal haul making him the division’s all-time marksman. Shearer actually netted more than 100 goals for two clubs during his career – Blackburn and Newcastle – and matched strength and power with a ferocious shot and an aerial threat. Kane’s all-round game is reminiscent of Shearer’s and he has the same fear factor over goalkeepers. A few goals ahead of Shearer at this stage of his career, Kane could yet challenge his England predecessor’s Premier League record if he stays fit over the next decade.

Wayne Rooney

Became Manchester United’s record scorer when he eclipsed Sir Bobby Charlton’s 249-goal mark in January 2017. Rooney rejoined his boyhood club Everton this summer after scoring 253 goals in 559 United appearances, some achievement for a player who often sacrificed himself for the sake of the team. A different player to Kane as he has operated all along the front line – as well as deeper positions – rather than just up top. But the former England captain is still second on the Premier League scoring list with exactly 200 goals.

Andy Cole

The third highest scorer in Premier League history with 187 goals. Cole scored for six different Premier League clubs – Newcastle, Manchester United, Blackburn, Fulham, Manchester City and Portsmouth. But it was at United where he had his greatest success with 121 goals in 275 games during eight trophy-filled years at Old Trafford. Cole relied on his sheer pace and movement to trouble defenders and, although far quicker than Kane, he did not have the Tottenham man’s dead-eyed efficiency in front of goal.

Thierry Henry

The Frenchman started his career as a winger as it was felt his pace and natural ball control would make him more effective attacking full-backs. But Monaco product Henry turned into a devastating centre-forward upon joining Arsenal following a short-lived spell at Juventus. Henry took a little time to settle in north London and did not score in his first eight appearances. But he soon put his explosive pace and balance to good use and was unplayable at times. Henry became the greatest goalscorer in Arsenal’s history with 228 and his legacy has also included a bronze statue in his honour at the Emirates Stadium.

Frank Lampard

The greatest goal-scoring midfielder in Premier League history and fourth on the all-time list with 177. Like Kane, Lampard was ice cool from the penalty spot but his trademark was the perfectly-timed break into the box. Lampard’s stamina to keep on making intelligent runs was equalled by his ability to stay calm in front of goal and he also possessed remarkable shooting accuracy from distance. The England midfielder’s place in Chelsea history was confirmed when he left in 2014 as the club’s top scorer with 211 goals in 649 appearances.

Robbie Fowler

The Liverpool product hailed from Toxteth in the city and was christened ‘God’ by the Anfield faithful for his innate scoring ability. Fowler was a natural finisher who had the knack of being in the right place at the right time and scored 183 goals for Liverpool during two spells at the club, 128 of which came in the Premier League. Fowler, however, failed to transfer that prolific scoring rate into international football with only seven goals in 26 England games. Kane has a far superior international strike-rate with 10 goals in his 21 England appearances.
