Premier League goal scoring record: Where does Harry Kane stand?

Where does Harry Kane rank among Premier League Top scorer?

Harry Kane, the captain of Tottenham, continues to make his mark on the Premier League’s all-time scoring table. After scoring against Fulham on January 23, Kane now sits in third place with 199 goals, closely behind Wayne Rooney in second place with 208 goals. Kane’s ultimate goal is to catch the leader, Alan Shearer, who sits at the top of the list with 260 goals.

Despite still having a ways to go before he can catch Shearer, Kane has made significant progress in his quest to become one of the greatest goal scorers in Premier League history. Kane is only 61 goals behind Shearer and has achieved this in just 10 years of play, while Shearer accomplished his total over a 14-year career.

Kane’s success is also evident on the road, as more than half of his goals have been scored away from home. He holds the all-time record for road goals scored in Premier League history after setting the mark at Brighton on March 16, 2022.

Will Kane break Premier League scoring record?

As one of the most talented and prolific scorers in the Premier League, Harry Kane has been making headlines for his impressive performances on the field. With his sights set on the all-time scoring record, Kane is currently in third place on the list of the league’s top goal scorers, behind only Wayne Rooney and Alan Shearer.

Rooney, who played for Everton and Manchester United, holds the second spot with 208 goals to his name. Kane, who is currently in the prime of his career, has the potential to surpass Rooney’s record if he can score 10 more goals in the remaining matches of the 2022/23 season.

The top spot, however, is held by Alan Shearer, who scored an impressive 260 goals during his time at Blackburn and Newcastle United. Kane still has a long way to go to reach this record, as he would need to score an additional 61 goals in order to equal Shearer’s achievement. This would likely require several more years of high-level, consistent production.

As Kane continues to chase the top spot, it’s worth taking a look at the other names on the list of the Top 20 all-time scorers in the Premier League’s history since its inception in 1992/93.
