Tottenham ace Harry Kane is now the joint-third highest goal scorer in Premier League history

Another day, another record for the Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane. The 29-year-old is now the joint-third highest goalscorer in Premier League history with 187 goals. (h/t Evening Standard)

Kane gave Spurs an early lead after a low shot found the back of the net at newly promoted side Nottingham Forest’s City Ground. 10 minutes later, the visiting side were awarded a penalty after Steve Cook handled the ball and preventing a goal.

But, to everyone’s surprise, the England captain missed the penalty, as Dean Henderson dived the correct way. This was his first miss from the penalty spot since February 2018.

However, the 29-year-old would go on to make up for it as he headed in his second goal with less than 10 minutes left to play. Richarlison, who had come on, provided the assist with a beautiful outside of the boot cross.

Last week, the Tottenham vice-captain surpassed Sergio Aguero’s one-club record with the winner against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Now only two players, Wayne Rooney (208) and Alan Shearer (260) have more goals than the England striker in the Premier League.

Forest will be unhappy with the result as they were much of the better team throughout the first half. They missed some good chances, but ultimately ended up paying the price for such misses. Conte, meanwhile, will be a happy man.

His side looked threatening and took their chances very well. Dejan Kulusevski was again very good and made some very purposeful runs into the opposition box. The defence played their part very well, with Hugo Lloris pulling off some important saves to keep a clean sheet.
