Tottenham’s Harry Kane has surpassed Kun Aguero’s record in Manchester City as the player with the highest number of Premier League goals for a single club.

The England captain in the match against Wolves on Saturday, scored the only goal through a flick from Ivan Perisic to record his 187 Premier League goals for Tottenham, one above Aguero’s 186.
Kane, a top-class striker has over time proven to be consistent but will pride himself more if he could exchange his personal accolades for a league honour according to the Tottenham boss Antonio Conte.
Conte praised the 29-year-old for achieving the feat but stressed that the aim is to challenge for major trophies this season.
“I know very well that Harry would like to exchange his personal achievements for a trophy and he is working very hard for this,” the Tottenham boss clarified.
Conte, furthermore, described Kane, who has poached 250 goals for the club in all competitions to close on Alan Shearer’s record to 75 goals difference in the all-time highest Premier League goal chart, as a player that contributes substantially to the team.
“We are talking about a world-class striker but what makes me happy is not only with the ball that we have a top scorer, we have a player that is involved and works a lot for the team,” he added.
However, Kane in an interview with BT Sport, admitted it has been fantastic with the Lilywhites for about a decade and wishes to continue scoring for the club.
“It’s been a fantastic nine or 10 years in the Premier League. Hopefully, many more years to go. I always love scoring,” Kane said.
The underlined that winning games is paramount and applauded his teammates for their contributions.
“The most important thing is winning games. Credit to the boys, they dug deep. We need to start games better,” he said.
“We need to improve. But the sign of a good team is winning when you don’t play at your best,” Kane advised.
Conte’s next match is against Premier League newcomers Nottingham Forest at City Ground on Sunday while Wolves would welcome Newcastle at Molineux Stadium after playing Preston in the second round of the Carabao Cup.
