Kaned! – The PL sides Harry Kane has scored the most goals against

Harry Kane celebrated a milestone moment after scoring the decisive goal in Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday, as the forward became Spurs’ all-time record goalscorer and just the third player to reach 200 goals in the Premier League.

Kane joins Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney in the exclusive club of players to have reached a double century and reached the 200-mark faster than either of that duo.

The 29-year-old – whose 200th top-flight goal was also his 267th in all competitions for Spurs, moving him past Jimmy Greaves and out in front as the club’s record scorer – has incredibly scored against every single club he has faced in the Premier League.

 

Following his milestone moment, we’ve looked at the five Premier League teams that Kane has scored the most goals against.

Southampton – 11 goals

Kane has reached double figures against six different Premier League clubs, with Crystal Palace (10) just missing out on his top five favoured opponents.

Remarkably, that treble is the most recent of Kane’s eight hat-tricks in the Premier League with the England captain having not claimed a match ball for over five years.

Kane did, however, memorably provide FOUR assists in a game against Southampton in 2020, with each of his assists coming for Son Heung-min in a 5-2 win at St Mary’s. He also scored his side’s fifth goal from the penalty spot as Spurs ran riot on the South Coast.

West Ham – 11 goals

Harry Kane holds the record for the most ever London derby goals and has scored 11 times in cross-capital contests with West Ham.

There’s no love lost between the Hammers and Spurs, and Kane has proven a regular scourge of their capital neighbours during a prolific Premier League career.

Perhaps his most memorable contribution came during a thrilling meeting between the teams in 2016/17, as Kane scored twice in the closing stages to turn defeat into victory for Spurs. The north Londoners trailed heading into the 89th minute, before Kane struck an equaliser and stoppage-time winner in a dramatic finish.

Kane has scored four braces against West Ham, including two in a 3-3 draw a between the sides at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in October 2020. Kane’s double and a Son Heung-min goal had put Spurs 3-0 ahead at half-time, but West Ham fought back to score three goals in the final eight minutes and snatch a point.

Everton – 14 goals

Kane boasts a brilliant record against Everton and has scored 14 goals in 15 league appearances against the Toffees, including the opener as Spurs won 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season.

Kane’s goal record has helped Spurs to an impressive recent record against their Merseyside opponents, having won nine, draw five and lost just one of his contests against Everton.

He has also scored six braces against Everton, with only Alan Shearer having ever matched that total against a single Premier League opponent. Shearer struck six doubles and one hat-trick against Leeds United, on his path to becoming the Premier League’s all-time record goalscorer.

It’s a landmark that Kane is firmly in pursuit of, with the Spurs striker now just 60 goals behind Shearer’s benchmark.

Arsenal – 14 goals

Harry Kane is the all-time record goalscorer in north London derby fixtures, having netted 14 league goals against Arsenal.

That haul takes Kane above Emmanuel Adebayor – who scored for both clubs in the fixture – and Bobby Smith, each of who scored ten goals in games between Arsenal and Spurs.

He marked his first north London derby appearance with a brace as Spurs beat Arsenal 2-1 at White Hart Lane in 2014/15 and has scored in 12 of his 17 appearances against the Gunners.

Kane also scored twice as Spurs thrashed the Gunners 3-0 last season, a decisive result as Antonio Conte’s side overtook their fierce rivals for a place in the Champions League.

Leicester – 18 goals

Kane has scored more goals against Leicester City than any other Premier League opponent, having hit a staggering 18 goals against the Foxes.

Leicester had a hand in Kane’s development with the forward spending the second half of the 2012/13 season on loan at the King Power Stadium, where he scored twice in 15 appearances as the Foxes missed out on Premier League promotion in the play-offs.

Kane has scored 18 goals in just 15 games against Leicester in the Premier League, a haul that includes two hat-tricks. He scored his first ever Premier League treble against the Foxes in a 4-3 win in 2015, before scoring four times at Leicester during the 2016/17 season.

That four-goal haul was the first of consecutive Premier League hat-tricks for Kane, as the forward scored seven goals in the final two games of the season to win the race for the Golden Boot. He ended that season with 29 goals in 30 appearances, the best goal-per-game ratio of any Golden Boot winner in Premier League history.
