Kane sets Premier League one-club record with 185th Spurs goal

Kane sets Premier League one-club record with 185th Spurs goal

Harry Kane set a Premier League record for the most goals scored by a single club on Saturday in Tottenham’s 1-0 victory over Wolves, but Antonio Conte claims the striker is more interested in championships than individual achievements.

With his 185th Premier League goal for Tottenham, Kane surpassed Sergio Aguero of Argentina, who had 184 goals while playing for Manchester City.

In his quest to surpass Jimmy Greaves as the north London club’s all-time record scorer, Kane moved 16 goals behind Greaves with his 250th goal for Tottenham in all competitions.

The 29-year-old scored a historic goal from close range in the second half at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

“I know he reached another significant personal milestone, but we’re trying to work together to have not only personal milestones, like last season, for instance, when Son (Heung-min) was the league’s top scorer, but to try to have a significant milestone together for the team and the club,” Conte said.

“Every player, in my opinion, is willing to give up a personal victory in order to win a trophy. On this issue, we’re working. We must attempt to do this, despite the difficulty and length of the route.”

Unbeaten Tottenham, who have won two of their first three games, are currently in first place despite playing considerably below their potential.

The length of their reign at the top may depend on other outcomes over the weekend, but there is no denying the positive vibe surrounding the club right now.

By guiding them into the Champions League and giving them hope for a sustained run as a top-four force, Conte has rejuvenated a club that was in shambles when he took over the previous season.

According to Conte, “I think last season this sort of game, you weren’t so prepared to discover this challenge and probably this type of game, you’re going to lose at the end.”

“This is a really wonderful collection of people, so I feel assured. There is incredible chemistry between us, which is crucial in my opinion since chemistry allows you to get through obstacles.”

Thomas Tuchel received a one-match touchline suspension as a result of the skirmishes on the Chelsea manager’s sideline last weekend, while Conte only received a fine.

Since Tottenham was outplayed in the first half, Conte’s rage this time was directed at his own players, and the Italian’s rage eventually led to the intended outcome.

Matheus Nunes, who cost Wolves a record-breaking £38 million to acquire him this week from Sporting Lisbon, had a strong debut.

Another of Wolves’ seven Portuguese players, Ruben Neves, challenged Hugo Lloris from a distance before Goncalo Guedes cut inside and attempted a low shot that just missed the target.

Neves’ threatening long-range shot was just off target, while Daniel Podence’s poor effort from a decent position caused Tottenham supporters to lose their cool.

Despite having quality in possession, Wolves lacked a cutting edge, which would be their undoing.

Tottenham was jeered off when Pedro Neto fired into the side-netting just before halftime, making them appear much more drowsy than they had at Chelsea the previous Saturday.
