Harry Kane has revealed his pride at overtaking Arsenal legend Thierry Henry on the Premier League's all-time top goalscorers list.

Kane netted twice in Tottenham's 5-0 thumping of Everton on Monday, taking his tally to 176 goals in the competition - one more than Henry managed - and he is just one behind Toffees boss Frank Lampard.

On moving past Henry, Kane told Sky Sports: "Thierry was one of the greatest Premier League strikers we've seen, so to go above him now is a nice little milestone."

Premier League all-time top goalscorers (as of 08/03/22)

  • Alan Shearer - 260
  • Wayne Rooney - 208
  • Sergio Aguero - 184
  • Frank Lampard - 177
  • Harry Kane - 176
  • Thierry Henry - 175
  • Robbie Fowler - 163
  • Jermain Defoe - 162
  • Michael Owen - 150

Kane still has 84 goals left to score if he is to tie Alan Shearer as the top scorer in the competition's history, and he warned the Newcastle icon that he still has time on his side to come for the record.

"I feel like I've got plenty more years in me, so hopefully I'll keep ticking off those names, keep helping the team with my goals," he said. "Then we'll see where we end up."

He continued: "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."
