Harry Kane tied with Wayne Rooney for the all-time record for Premier League goals away from home when he netted in Spurs' 3-2 defeat to Manchester United.

The England captain slammed in a penalty to go level with his former Three Lions teammate on 94 top-flight league goals on his travels. It's taken Kane just 138 games to reach the landmark, while Rooney required 243 appearances.

Kane had already gone clear of Premier League legends like Alan Shearer (87 goals), Frank Lampard (85) and Andy Cole (83).

The goal also took him level with Lampard as the league's fifth all-time top scorer on 177 efforts.

Kane will have the chance to move clear of both Rooney and Lampard next week when Spurs visit Brighton on Wednesday. Despite performing reasonably well at Old Trafford, a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick saw United bounce back from their shambolic defeat at Manchester City and boost their Champions League qualification hopes, damaging Tottenham's in the process.

Arsenal remain in the driving spot for fourth place, having four games in hand on United and sitting just two points behind them in fifth. Tottenham are seventh and have two games in hand - one of which being the north London derby with Arsenal - but their inconsistency has majorly scuppered their chances of a top four finish.
