After scoring a header off a corner in Tottenham Hotspurs‘ 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Spurs striker Harry Kane recorded his name in the history books. He now holds the record of scoring the most number of Premier League goals (185) for a single club. He has now gone past ex-Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, who had scored 184 goals.

Earlier in the game on Saturday, August 20, Spurs beat Wolves at the Tottenham Hotspurs stadium to move to the top of the standings with seven points after three games. Wolves have now lost all of their Premier League games except one, which they drew, dropping them to 16th place. The host team played poorly in the first half but significantly better in the second. There were many missed chances for the Spurs in the second half. Harry Kane soon scored his historic goal when Ivan Perisic directed Heung-Min Son’s corner into Kane’s path. The header was sufficient as both the teams failed to score thereafter.
