LONDON 20 August (Reuters) — Harry Kane set a Premier League record for goals scored by one club on Saturday when his goal-scoring effort with a head earned Tottenham Hotspur a 1-0 home victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers that sent them up the league table.
Tottenham was defeated during the first period, but they were different after the break The game was won by Kane scoring at the end of 64 minutes to net his 18th Premier League goal.
There is no player who is credited with scoring more goals in a single club during the Premier League era, with England captain Kane surpassing Sergio Aguero’s total in the Premier League for Manchester City.
Wolves currently losing these 10-game Premier League games had 12 goals compared to Tottenham’s just one in the first half, but could not score enough goals to make their advantage count.
Tottenham was able to find a few more gears that allowed him to take control. Kane and Son Heung Min both getting snubbed by the woodwork. Kane made his way into the corner that was flicked over from behind by Ivan Perisic.
This was Spur’s 1000th Premier League goal at home and increased their lead to seven points after their first three matches, which is one point better than the champions Manchester City, who play on Sunday, as well as Arsenal who will play later on Saturday.
Wolves have just one point from their first three games.
Kane only had a brief glimpse in the opening half that saw Wolves gain confidence and frequently smashed through Tottenham’s defense, but they failed to challenge Hugo Lloris.
However, just like when he scored an equalizer in the last minute at Chelsea this week, the striker employed his poaching skills to devastating result.
Moments after putting the ball of a Dejan Kulusevski cross over the post, Kane found space in the box and defeat Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa with one of the most straightforward strikers of the game.
“It’s been a fantastic nine or 10 years in the Premier League. Hopefully, many more years to go. I always love scoring,” Kane told reporters when asked about advancing past Aguero’s mark.
To add to the milestones this was the 250th time Kane scored across every competition for Spurs.
“Credit to Wolves, they made it difficult. In the second half, we came out with intensity. We created chances and pressed better. We deserved the goal,” the coach said.
Although Tottenham has begun the season well, Kane acknowledged they need to get better.
“Credit to the boys, they dug deep. We need to start games better. We need to improve. But the sign of a good team is winning when you don’t play at your best,” He stated.
Wolves were the first team to include seven Portuguese players to their first team but will be disappointed not to capitalize on a dominant first half.
Ruben Neves sent a shot over the bar, Daniel Podence snatched at an opportunity as did Matheus Nunes, making his debut, was close to scoring a goal, but his shot went in a painfully wide area of the goal. Tottenham goal.
