Harry Kane has scripted new Premier League records with his brace against Leeds today, May 28. The Tottenham captain equalled an impressive Premier League record set by Andy Cole with his goals for Tottenham against Leeds.
Kane’s second-minute goal handed Spurs the lead before Pedro Porro’s goal in the second half confirmed Leeds’s relegation to the Championship. Jack Harrison pulled one back before Kane got his second. Lucas Moura added Spurs’ fourth.
The England captain has now scored 11 goals on the final day of a season in the Premier League. He steered clear of Andy Cole and Les Ferdinand, who both have 9 goals each on the final day of a Premier League season.
Kane has also scored in 26 different Premier League games this season. It is the joint-most games any player has scored in within a single campaign in the competition. He is now level with Manchester United legend Cole, who set the record while playing for Newcastle in 1993-94.
Kane’s brace against Leeds took him to 30 goals in the Premier League for the season. He is now the first player to hit 30 goals or more in two separate top-flight campaigns, having also achieved the feat in 2017-18.
The goals could prove to be the 29-year-old’s last for Spurs as he’s been linked with a summer transfer to Manchester United. The Red Devils are in the market for a new striker and have reportedly listed Kane as their favoured candidate heading into the summer window.
Making his 320th Premier League appearance today, May 28, Kane has raced to 213 goals. He also has 46 assists.
In the 2022-23 season, Kane finished as the second-highest scorer in the league with 30 goals. Only, Erling Haaland (36) managed to score more.
