It was a record-breaking evening for England talisman Harry Kane as his solitary strike earned Tottenham Hotspurs a crucial 1-0 victory over reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in their Matchday 22 clash at the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium on Sunday.
The moment of history arrived in the 15th minute of the first half, as Harry Kane netted off an assist from Pierre Emile Hojbjerg to put Spurs ahead and ultimately give the Lilywhites all crucial three points on the day. Christian Romero was given his marching orders late on, as he was sent off following two bookings and he will be suspended for Tottenham Hotspurs next clash against Leicester City.
Kane’s strike saw him overtake Jimmy Greaves as Spurs all-time top scorer with 267 goals. He has also become the third player in Premier League history after Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney to reach 200 goals in the competition.
