Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane is widely considered as one of the best strikers in Premier League history with the England captain is tipped to break a slew of records by the time he decides to hang up his boots.

Kane scored a brace in Tottenham's 5-0 win over Everton in the Premier League on Monday and in the process he moved above Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry on the all-time PL goalscorers list. The Spurs striker now has 176 goals to his name which is one above Henry and only one behind Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard who netted 177 goals during his career.

The 28-year-old for his part insisted that it was great to go above a legendary player like Henry and that he hoped that he could score more goals in the future.

"It is all about getting those chances and I am always confident I am going to hit the target. I always try to keep the ball low. Hard work and practice, it is no secret. Thierry was one of the greatest strikers we have seen, so it is nice to go above him in the scorers list and hopefully they keep coming," he said post the game.

Despite scoring tons of goals, Kane is yet to win a trophy in his career and it will be interesting whether he decides to make the move to another club in order to win silverware next summer.
