The Spurs superstar registered his name alongside some of the greatest names in the English top-flight history by scoring against West Brom last year.

Harry Kane has picked his goal against Tottenham’s fierce rivals Arsenal in 2016 as the best of his first 150 Premier League goals.

Kane enjoyed his breakthrough season with Tottenham in 2014-15, scoring 31 goals in 51 appearances across all competitions, and has not looked back ever since.

The striker has reached many milestones and broken several records since then, the latest of which came this season in November 2020.

An 88-minute header from him saw Spurs seal a 1-0 win against West Brom, with the 27-year-old reaching 150 goals in the Premier League in the process.

Only two players – Alan Shearer and Sergio Aguero in 212 and 217 matches respectively – have hit that tally in fewer games than the England captain, who needed 218 games.

Asked to pick up the best of his first goals in the English top-flight, he chose his curler in Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal in 2016.

“We had just scored the equaliser,” recalled Kane, speaking to the official Premier League website after being presented with the award by the League and Coca-Cola. “The crowd were on their feet. The atmosphere was electric.

“To score that was unbelievable. One of my best goals technically and the moment was really special.

“A really proud achievement. Obviously 150 goals is a lot down to my team-mates. Another Milestone reached and hopefully a few more to come.”
