A number of noteworthy statistics surrounding the production of Harry Kane have come to the fore online this evening, on the back of the English international’s strike versus West Bromwich Albion.
Lilywhites leave it late
Spurs made the trip to the Hawthorns a short time ago, for a Premier League meeting with West Brom.
Jose Mourinho’s men headed into proceedings with their tails up, on the back of a pair of wins over the course of the week prior, making it four from their last five across all competitions.
And, when all was said and done this afternoon, the upturn in form being enjoyed by the north Londoners rolled on.
A tense affair, from which West Brom really should have bagged at least a point, eventually saw Spurs emerge with the better of a 1-0 scoreline.
Unsurprisingly, it was Harry Kane who bagged the only goal of the clash, just three minutes from time.
After Matt Doherty floated what looked an altogether unthreatening delivery into the hosts’ box from deep, Kane rose highest, to flick a deft header beyond the stranded Sam Johnstone.
Highlights: West Brom 0-1 Tottenham
As well as proving integral in guiding Tottenham to their latest 3-point haul (and, at the time, the top of the Premier League table), Kane’s clincher versus West Brom also proved a significant one from an individual standpoint.
The English international’s latest finish took him into the 150-club, as one of only ten players to have ever found the back of the net on 150 occasions since the Premier League’s inception.
On the back of the 27-year-old’s thoroughly impressive accomplishment, meanwhile, a number of further statistics have since come to the fore online.
Some of the best are showcased below, as Kane continues to stake his claim as one of the English top-flight’s finest-ever goalscorers:
