Harry Kane Stats
Harry Kane rose through the ranks of the Tottenham Hotspur Academy and has had a startling career at the club in his senior capacity. Kane finished his 2016-17 Premier League campaign with back-to-back hat-tricks in Tottenham Hotspur’s final two matches. As a result, he surpassed Alan Shearer’s record of having scored the most goals within a calendar year, totalling 39. His marvellous campaign also meant that he entered the club’s coveted top-ten goal scorers of all time.
Harry became a Spurs Academy player in 2009. After making himself known to the training staff, it was confirmed that he would advance his skills by joining Leyton Orient on loan in January 2011. He made 18 appearances for the Football League side and scored 5 goals.
After a brief period back at Spurs where he made 6 appearances in the Europa League, Harry was back out on loan, this time to Millwall and then to Norwich City in the season after. However his time at Carrow Road was hampered by an ankle injury and he was only able to make four appearances for Norwich. When he returned to full fitness, Kane then joined Leicester City, where he netted twice for the Foxes as they reached the Championship play-offs.
The 2013-14 campaign marked Kane’s return to White Hart Lane where he began to feature more regularly in the Spurs starting XI. In total he made nineteen appearances for Spurs in all competitions and made his first Premier League start for the club in April 2014, scoring against Sunderland in a 5-1 victory at White Hart Lane.
It was his remarkable 2014-15 season where he became a household name for Spurs. Kane scored his first senior hat-trick for Spurs in a Europa League match against Asteras Tripolis and also played some of the game as goalkeeper. Kane made his impact in the Premier League away against Aston Villa, coming on as a second-half substitute and scoring a deflected free-kick off Aston Villa defender Nathan Baker in the last minute to give Spurs a 2-1 win. That cameo ensured that he started his first Premier League match of the season in the next game against Stoke City and from then he has been a mainstay in the Spurs first team.
He finished his season with 31 goals in 51 appearances, the first Spurs player to surpass 30 goals in a single season since Gary Lineker in 1992! He won back-to-back Player of the Month awards in his 2015-16 campaign, and also marked his senior debut for England in the same year. That season he was the top scorer in the Premier League with 25 goals and his accolades came thick and fast: winning PFA Young Player of the Year, marking his place in the PFA team of the year, as well as winning a host of club awards.
In the 2016-17 season, Kane picked up another Golden Boot scoring almost a goal a game with 29 in 30 matches. In total Kane scored 35 goals in all competitions despite missing around 11 weeks of the season because of injury. The season included five hat-tricks and he scored four goals against former club Leicester for the first time in a Spurs shirt.
The following campaign Kane scored his first Champions League hat-trick in a group stage win over APOEL of Cyprus. In December 2017 he equalled the record of Alan Shearer in scoring 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year before surpassing that record with yet another hat-trick, this time against Southampton. With 57 goals in that calendar year, Kane beat the goal tallies of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for 2017. One month later he surpassed Teddy Sheringham’s Spurs record of 97 Premier League goals before a penalty against Liverpool saw him become the first Spurs player to score 100 goals in the Premier League.
In the 2018-19, Kane scored a Premier League goal for the first time in August with a strike against Fulham at Wembley. By scoring against Cardiff on New Year’s Day, Kane became the first player to have scored against every Premier League team that he has faced. Kane was injured for February 2019 after picking up a knock against Manchester United but returned to the Spurs side against Burnley, scoring in a 2-1 defeat.
Kane scored on his England debut in March 2015 against Lithuania and has not looked back since. He appeared for his country in EURO 2016 and in 2018 captained England in the World Cup in Russia. In that tournament he won the golden boot as England reached the semi-finals, leaving no doubt that he is one of the best strikers in the world.
