English skipper Harry Kane on Sunday achieved a mammoth feat. A heroic feat that no other Tottenham Hotspur player has accomplished to this date for the club. As of now, Manchester City remain in second place with 45 points from 21 games. On the other hand, Arsenal are on the top with 50 points from 20 games. Spurs registered a victory over Manchester City by a margin of 1-0. Manchester City undoubtedly were sloppy with their passing and Kane made them pay.

The England football team skipper Kane made a 15th-minute effort and became north London club, Tottenham Hotspur's leading goalscorer of all time. Kane, who has now 267 goals to his name for his club Spurs has raced ahead of former great Jimmy Greaves whose record had stood since the year 1970. Kane's goal was not just celebrated by the fans and supporters of Tottenham Hotspur, but Arsenal fans too might have celebrated it down the Seven Sisters Road as Manchester City were eyeing to go past them in the leaderboard.
