Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has scored a sensational amount of goals in his career with the club so far.
He’s netted 169 in just 260 games and should end up as Spurs’ third highest goalscorer of all-time by the end of the campaign with Martin Chivers, who bagged 174 strikes in 367 appearances, the next man in his sights.
He’s completed some impressive feats in his career to date, scoring the most Premier League goals in a calendar year when he hit 49 in 2017, the same year he was the top scoring player in the whole of Europe with 56.
He’s already the club’s record European goal-getter with 25 – hitting a vital 24th in March against Borussia Dortmund to put him ahead of Chivers in the rankings.
Meanwhile, he’s only 97 behind legendary forward Jimmy Greaves who netted 266 times for Tottenham in 379 appearances.
Unfortunately for serial net-botherer Kane, there is one goal-record he is extremely unlikely to break during his stay in north London.
In 12 League Cup appearances, including nine starts, he’s only managed five goals so far – 17 less than Tottenham hero Chivers (23).
The 1972 UEFA Cup winner is, in fact, way out in front with Jermain Defoe the closest to his total having hit the back of the net 14 times in the competition.
Chivers’ tremendous record is partly down to Spurs’ two League Cup win 1971 and 1973.
Kane is unlikely to be able to close the gap tonight against Colchester United either with Mauricio Pochettino set to rest his striker and allow wonderkid Troy Parrott to step up and prove himself.
If Kane does manage to get himself on the pitch then he’ll be aiming to net one or two times and take himself past Steffen Iversen (6) and pull level with the likes of Roman Pavlyuchenko, Steve Archibald, and John Pratt, who have seven League Cup goals.
Mind you, given the stunning records Kane is set to smash you wouldn’t put it past him proving us wrong and breaking this one too.
