Harry Kane’s London derbies scoring record: The numbers

Harry Kane’s London derbies scoring record: The numbers

Can Harry Kane continue his impressive London derby scoring record when Tottenham face West Ham live on Sky Sports on Saturday? The 24-year-old has netted 19 goals in 28 Premier League appearances against London opposition since breaking into the Spurs team in the 2013/14 campaign.

His average of 0.68 goals per game is second only to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry among players to have made a minimum of 10 appearances in the Premier League.

Kane is just ahead of Spurs legend Jurgen Klinsmann, who scored 11 goals in 17 appearances, while West Ham playmaker Manuel Lanzini is the closest active player having netted nine in 14.

Kane will hoping to close the gap on Henry at the London Stadium, but he has plenty of work to do to match the former Arsenal man’s overall total.

Henry scored 43 goals in London derbies, and Kane’s total of 19 is also behind the likes of Frank Lampard, Ian Wright, Jermain Defoe and Robin van Persie in the overall rankings.

If Kane continues at his current rate, however, it might not be long until he overtakes them all. Against West Ham on Saturday afternoon, he will be hoping for more capital gains.
