The clubs Harry Kane has scored the most goals against
There is no longer any doubt: Harry Kane is a world-class footballer.
It’s not a one-season wonder, it’s not a fraud, it’s not a ride pony. He scores against just about everyone he plays and at a ridiculous rate. At this point he’s a drummer of the world.
We all know he loves a London derby, but most teams have felt the cold touch of the England star’s icy finish. Here are the teams he holds great records against so far in his career.
One game and three goals is Kane’s record against Cypriot team APOEL.
The hat-trick came in the 2017/18 Champions League, when the England captain scored a perfect hat trick.
Before this qualifier for the Europa League, Mohammad Abu Fani of Maccabi told Kane to get “on my dick”. It didn’t work out that well.
Tottenham won the game 7-2 and Kane finished with a hat-trick. Sometimes it’s better not to say anything.
Spurs met Greece’s Olympiacos in their ill-fated 2019/20 Champions League run.
Kane scored in the 2-2 away draw and helped his side out of jail in the second leg, scoring twice as Tottenham came from behind to win 4-2.
It was a similar story with Olympiacos as with PSV for Kane.
He scored in a 2-2 draw in the Netherlands before clinching a brace in a 2-1 win at Wembley, helping Spurs advance to their Champions League group after a horrific start .
A course of three goals more reserved here, in six games. He has never lost to Swansea, even though he only scored in two matches.
The first goal came in 2014/15, while the other two were in a 5-0 loss in 2016/17.
Another team that Kane has yet to lose to, although that record is not in jeopardy anytime soon given Sunderland’s current position in Ligue 1.
His strikes against the Black Cats were all relatively straightforward, with no braces or hat tricks.
Kane’s first Premier League goal came against Sunderland in 2014.
Back in the season, when Kane came on the scene, he made a name for himself as a goalscorer and, uh, goalie.
A hat trick came in a 5-1 beating from Asteras Tripoli, where he also replaced Hugo Lloris after the Frenchman was sent off. He let a free kick wiggle under his body for the visitors’ goal.
A goal also came in the away game.
Tottenham have seen positive results against Borussia Dortmund in back-to-back Champions League campaigns.
Kane scored at home and away in the 2017/18 campaign, including two at Wembley, and allowed Spurs to advance safely to the quarter-finals of the following season with a strike at the Westfalenstadion.
It took Kane until his third game to score against Watford, securing a brace in a 4-1 win in 2016/17.
He also scored against the Hornets for Leicester while on loan with the league outfit at the time.
Kane has an excellent record against a number of top six clubs, but Manchester United is not one of them.
He has only scored two goals against the Red Devils in 13 games, though a 6-1 brace at the start of the 2020/21 term helped push that record down to four.
Only the three games played against Norwich for Kane, but he returned five goals in those outings.
Two accolades secured 3-0 victories in the 2015/16 season, despite also having to score an equalizer in 2019/20.
Kane doesn’t miss the mark when he confronts Fulham.
He scored twice in two Premier League games but saved his best for an FA Cup clash with Londoners, registering a hat trick in the fifth round of the 2016/17 competition.
Tottenham were never really threatened by Huddersfield during their brief stint in the Premier League. The Terriers have never actually scored against Spurs in those four games.
Kane has proven to be the difference in two games, scoring accolades in comfortable wins at Tottenham. He had also won the Leyton Orient award during a loan spell in 2010/11.
Kane’s first goal against Brighton came in a Carabao Cup draw in 2014, although since the Seagulls became a Premier League side his numbers have risen.
Spurs rarely blow Brighton with their offensive quality, but four goals in six Premier League appearances is still a decent result for Kane.
Oddly enough, Newcastle didn’t feel the sting of Kane’s lethal finish as much as the other teams.
A brace in a 3-1 2019/20 away win helped solidify his record against the Magpies, which is also helped by a strike in a Carabao Cup draw in 2014.
15 games and only five goals. Really, Harry? Really? Come on now, it’s time to get serious.
He scored a winner at Selhurst Park during the 2017/18 term, while two strikes in consecutive games against Palace in 2020 helped Tottenham to two 1-1 draws.
Romelu Lukaku had nearly won the Golden Boot in the last games of the 2016/17 season, but Kane has scored seven – yeah, seven – goals in the last two games of the campaign.
Three of them came in the 7-1 win of the final day at Hull in a ruthless display by the English sniper.
That’s six goals in six games against Villa for Kane, the most famous being his deflected free kick that stole the victory at Birmingham in 2014/15.
The Villans’ relegation meant Kane had to wait before meeting them again, but he caught two on the opening day of the 2019/20 campaign to welcome Dean Smith’s side into the top flight.
In 12 games, Kane has won only one game of his career so far against Liverpool, which is one of his worst records.
He couldn’t find the net in the 2019 Champions League final, but racked up six strikes in domestic matches, including two in a 4-1 win in 2017.
His 100th Premier League goal also came at Anfield.
It was against Chelsea that Kane announced himself as the Premier League’s brilliant new striker in 2015, scoring twice against the future champions in a virtuoso display.
Other strikes took place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
When Bournemouth were first promoted for the 2015/16 season, Kane couldn’t stop scoring against them.
Five goals have come in both games this season, including a hat trick in a 5-1 away win.
One of Kane’s first league goals for Spurs came during the frenetic Tim Sherwood era, when Spurs went from three goals to a 3-3 draw in 2014.
Another brace followed in the away game the following season before a hat trick in a 4-0 win in the 2016/17 campaign.
Kane’s first goal against Burnley came for Millwall in the Championship in 2011/12 in a 3-1 victory.
Since then, there has been a hat trick in a 3-0 away success and a brace in a 5-0 home win, most notable for Son Heung-min’s Puskas goal.
In four straight games in the 2016/17 and 2018/19 seasons, Kane scored braces to bring his tally against Everton to nine.
His 100th goal for the Lilywhites also came against the Toffees.
Kane averages one goal per game against Stoke, having played and scored ten apiece, but he has gone scoreless in those first four appearances.
However, all ten goals have been scored in the last six games against the Potters, including one in the 2020/21 Cabarao Cup quarter-finals.
It was against Southampton that Kane broke Alan Shearer’s record for Premier League goals in a calendar year, finishing 2017 with 39 goals in 36 games.
That game saw him score a hat trick, but more recently he’s been famous for staging Son’s four strikes against the Saints in 2020.
Since scoring his first two goals in the North London derby in 2015, Kane has loved taking on fierce rivals Tottenham and his former club.
He’s up to 11, with goals against the Gunners regularly without any other accolades or hat tricks.
Kane has had to bail out Tottenham against West Ham on several occasions.
He has twice scored accolades in 3-2 success, although his last brace came in the 3-3 draw in October 2020, a game that Tottenham fans have yet to fully recover from.
Leicester must have had enough of the sight of their former striker on loan.
Kane enjoyed a spell with the Foxes, but has since spent his time helping himself score goals against them.
Four goals in a game towards the end of the 2016/17 season helped him claim this quarter’s Golden Boot, as he also got his first Premier League hat trick against them in 2014/15 .
