Despite Fulham being the superior team for the first 45 minutes, Kane’s typically precise finish gave Spurs the lead late in the first half.

With his back to the goal, he received the ball before creating a yard of space and firing a ferocious right-footed effort into the corner of Bernd Leno’s net.

After Alan Shearer with 260 goals and Wayne Rooney with 208, Kane is third among all Premier League goal scorers since the league’s inception in 1992.

In 29 games for Spurs this season, he has scored 18 goals, 12 more than the next-closest competitor Son Heung-min.
