The Tottenham striker first equaled then beat Henry’s record of 175 goals during Spurs’ dominant 5-0 win over sorry Everton and moved just one behind Toffees boss Frank Lampard.
Sergio Aguero’s haul of 184 is in sight before the end of the season and Kane could feasibly become only the third player after Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney to score over 200 goals in England’s elite division in the near future.

“Thierry was one of the greatest Premier League strikers we’ve seen, so to go above him now is a nice little milestone,” he told Sky Sports after the game.
