Harry Kane’s brace against Everton saw him overtake Thierry Henry and put him one goal behind Frank Lampard in the Premier League all-time scoring charts and bet365 are offering odds of 6/5* he tops Alan Shearer’s record of 260 goals.
A Purple Patch
The England captain seems to have shrugged off the early season goal drought by firing in five goals in his last four Premier League appearances.
bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “With 176, Kane looks long odds-on to leapfrog the likes of Frank Lampard (177) Sergio Aguero (184), Andy Cole (187) and even Wayne Rooney (208), but there will be a debate about whether he can surpass Alan Shearer’s mammoth total.
“Admittedly, he won’t be facing defences like Everton’s every week, but there would almost certainly be an increase in the ‘yes’ camp if he were to join Manchester City this summer and likewise a few more doubters if he stays another year at Spurs with him nearing 30.
“Either way, Kane gets a perfect opportunity to further eat into the record tally this weekend against Manchester United if last Sunday’s showing at the Etihad is anything to go by.”
Kane’s double against the Toffees has taken him to 10 Premier League goals for the campaign and bet365 rate him as a 25/1* shot to score 25 or more this season for the fourth time in his career.
