Harry Kane's strike against Fulham helps the English striker set a new record at Tottenham.

Harry Kane has cemented his place in Tottenham's history, as his goal against Fulham was his 266th for the club, tying him with Jimmy Greaves for the most goals in the club's history.  

Harry Kane reaches new milestone

Tottenham faced back-to-back defeats against Arsenal and Manchester City, putting manager Antonio Conte under scrutiny and in need of a reaction in the London derby against Fulham.

In a first half mostly spent on the back foot, it was the Lilywhites' familiar hero who came to their rescue once more.

Harry Kane held off the challenge of an opposing defender after Son rolled the ball towards him, and the striker hit a curler into the bottom right corner.

The solitary goal would be enough to win all three points for Tottenham as they close the gap on the top four.

The goal, however important for Tottenham, also had significance for the scorer's legacy at the club. 

Harry Kane is now officially the joint-top scorer in Tottenham Hotspur history (266 goals) and is expected to sit on the throne alone in the coming games.

Kane misses out on club 200

Harry Kane's curler was also his 199th goal in the Premier League.  

In the midst of his celebration tonight, Harry Kane would certainly rue a missed chance to become the third player to ever score 200 goals in the Premier League.

The 29-year-old certainly had his chances, and one more goal tonight would have made him the outright best scorer in Tottenham's history and inducted him into the prestigious two-member club.

Alan Shearer (260) and Wayne Rooney (208) would have to wait for a game or more to share their honour.
