On an embarrassing night for Lampard and his players, Spurs striker Harry Kane added two goals to his tally and surpassed Thierry Henry on the Premier League goalscoring list. Harry Kane is now 6th on the list with 176 goals, just one behind ex-Chelsea midfielder and current Everton manager, Frank Lampard.  

Tottenham won a game that was crucial for both sides, as they look to grab a top 4 spot while Everton looks to stay clear of the relegation zone. Spurs remain seventh, but now are just three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal. They are equal on points with sixth-placed West Ham and 2 points behind United but the Londoners have two games in hand. Everton is just one point and one place above the relegation zone with a game in hand.

Harry Kane’s 176 goals came in 270 appearances, 12 more than Thierry Henry, who scored 175 goals in 258 appearances. “Hard work and patience, no secret,” Kane told Sky Sports after thrashing Everton 5-0.

Pundits across the globe were full of praise for the 28-year-old after a stellar performance. “His actual range of passing, his striking of the ball, is as good as any,” said ex-Liverpool star Jamie Carragher on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show.

Kane is the only player in the top-10 list to be playing professionally, while the others are either retired or have taken up managerial roles. Alan Shearer tops the list with 260 goals, and given Kane remains in the Premier League, the sight of the top scorer is not too far away for the Spurs man.

The other players above him in the list are Frank Lampard, Sergio Aguero, Andrew Cole, Wayne Rooney, and Alan Shearer.
