Tottenham striker Harry Kane aims to become only the third player to reach 200 goals in the Premier League after scoring in a 2-0 victory over West Ham on Tuesday.

In his 200th appearance for the club, the England captain netted his 137th league goal for Spurs.

Just Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney have passed 200 goals in the Premier League.

Kane said: “I am only 26 so hopefully I will be able to get to that 200 marks sooner rather than later and go from there.”

“Scoring is the world’s best feeling. Two hundred games … it’s going so fast, the years are flying by, and you’ve got to make the most of it,” he said to Sky Sports

Before picking up a thigh injury that ruled him out for six months, Kane had last scored in December, and now has 12 goals for the season.

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho added: “I ‘m pleased with him [Kane], he’s been working a lot, and there’s going to be more news, and a more feel for him now.”

Only Sergio Aguero of Manchester City-and just with 138-scored more goals for a single club in his first 200 appearances in the Premier League than Kane did for Tottenham (137).

Kane’s scored better than Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, who scored 131 for the Gunners in his first 200 league games.

Also, Kane became only the 11th outfield player to reach 200 appearances for Spurs in the Premier League. In their milestone match, another five scored-Sol Campbell, Teddy Sheringham, Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe, and Christian Eriksen.

The goal was also Kane’s ninth against West Ham, meaning he’s the fourth player in London derbies to score at least 30 Premier League goals (Thierry Henry, Teddy Sheringham, and Frank Lampard finish the list).

And if Kane scores 200 goals, he ‘d only become the third player in Premier League history to do so, joining Alan Shearer (260) and Wayne Rooney (208) in the footsteps.
