England national football team captain Harry Kane has now scored 185 league goals in his Tottenham Hotspur career, a record for the most Premier League goals for a single club.

Kane made his Premier League debut at 19 years and 21 days during Tottenham’s 1-2 defeat to Newcastle United in 2012. The striker scored his first-ever English Premier League goal for Spurs in a 5-1 victory over Sunderland in 2014.

Since then, Harry Kane has averaged 20 goals per Premier League season right up to 2021-22.

Besides winning the Golden Boot in 2015-16 (25 goals) and 2016-17 (29 goals), Harry Kane’s best Premier League campaign came in 2017/2018 where he scored 30 goals.

Kane’s record 185th goal was also his 250th career goal for Tottenham Hotspur across all competitions.

Sergio Aguero, Manchester City’s all-time record goalscorer in history, previously held the record for most Premier League goals for a single club.

The Argentine forward, who retired in 2021, scored 184 goals during his time in the Premier League between 2011 and 2021.

Aguero is best remembered for his stoppage-time goal in the 3-2 win against Queens Park Rangers that won Manchester City their first Premier League title.

Third on the list is another Manchester legend in Wayne Rooney. The all-time record goalscorer for Manchester United, Rooney scored 183 goals during his trophy-laden spell with the Red Devils.

Among the top moments in Wayne Rooney’s Premier League legacy, the one that certainly stands out is his 78th-minute overhead kick against Manchester City in a derby.

Thierry Henry (175) and Alan Shearer (148) complete the top five list of players with the most Premier League goals for a single club.

Henry, one of the greatest overseas players ever to play in the English Premier League, scripted history of his own with his contribution as part of ‘The Invincibles’ and as Arsenal’s record scorer in the English top-flight league.

Lastly, Alan Shearer is the fifth player on the list. The legendary England striker was a force to be reckoned with during his time at Newcastle United, where he became the highest Premier League goalscorer of all time with 206 goals. Shearer’s remaining goals came while playing for Southampton and Blackburn Rovers.
