Scoring even one goal in the Premier League is impressive, having 153 is just amazing, but scoring against all the teams you’ve ever faced in the league? Well that’s something to see.
Harry Kane has become the first player to score against the 30 Premier League sides he faced after slamming a penalty in Spurs’ 3-0 win over Leeds on Saturday afternoon.
Previously holding the record at 29, Kane has now increased his numbers to even 30 Premier League sides which he has passed by scoring against newly promoted Marcelo Bielsa side at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
However, Kane still has a ways to go to reach Frank Lampard’s record for scoring against 39 different Premier League teams. The current Blues manager’s 39th goal came against former Chelsea side for Manchester City in a 1-1 draw in a memorable game in September 2014.
Lampard has failed to score against five Premier League opponents in his career, however, never against Burnley, Cardiff City, Ipswich Town, QPR or Watford. Kane has already scored against four of them in his Premier League career, while Ipswich Town has not honored the top flight since 2001/02 and languishes in League One, making it difficult for Kane to complete the set Sadly.
All of this season’s Premier League sides have already conceded Kane in their Premier League existence, so Kane will have to wait until the newly promoted league clubs join Spurs in the 2021/22 season to extend his record even further.
With his form and consistency, there is certainly no bet against Kane who continues the record as long as he plays at the highest level, and as long as the teams he has not already scored against are promoted into the league. ‘elite.
Who will be number 31? Time will tell us…
