Breaking 100 Premier League goal record is its own reward as there are few records in football which appear to be truly untouchable, however, Alan Shearer‘s goals scored in the Premier League era will take some beating.
Newcastle legend Alan Shearer packed away a total of 260 Premier League goals for Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United, and for quite a long time has stood, undermined by no-one, at the highest point of the scoring chart.
Notwithstanding, Harry Kane may well be the man to take Shearer’s mantle, having reached a century of Premier League strikes in twofold-quick time.
The Three-Lions lethal forward last-gasp penalty for Tottenham against Liverpool on Sunday was his 100th goals in the Premier League – he becomes the 27th player to reach the 100-goal mark. Most amazing about Kane’s 100-goal mark how fast he achieved this milestone, stowing his century in a mere 141 Spurs game.
Just one player has reached the 100-goal mark faster, in just 124 games – no prizes for speculating that Shearer likewise holds that distinction
The breakdown of Kane’s century uncovers his style of play – albeit equipped for striking from any distance of the pitch, the vast majority of his goals have come from penalty box poaching. Up to this point, 88 of Kane’s goals have been scored inside the penalty territory, with only 12 being scored from 18 yards or more.
Meanwhile, Alan Shearer unsurprisingly holds the record for goals scored in the box – 227 – while Chelsea great Frank Lampard scored 41 goals from outside the 18-yard box, more than any player on 100-goal list
