Harry Kane set a new Premier League record as his second half headed goal earned Tottenham Hotspur a vital 1-0 home victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon - a result that puts them top of the table.

Kane sets Premier League club goals record

Tottenham were outplayed in the first half but were a different proposition after the interval with Kane pouncing in the 64th minute to score his 185th Premier League goal. No other player has scored more Premier League goals for a single club, with England skipper Kane moving clear of Sergio Agüero’s tally for Manchester City. It was also Kane’s 250th goal for Spurs in all competitions - he moves within 16 goals of equalling the club record, held by the late, great Jimmy Greaves (266).

Wolves, who are now without a win in their last 10 Premier League games, had 12 goal attempts to Tottenham’s one in the first half but were unable to make their superiority count. Tottenham then found some extra gears to seize control, with Kane and Son Heung-min both being denied by the woodwork before Kane headed in from a corner flicked on by Ivan Perisic. It was Tottenham’s 1,000th Premier League goal at home and lifted them to seven points from their opening three games, a point more than champions Manchester City, who play on Sunday, and Arsenal who are in action later on Saturday. Wolves have one point from their opening three games.
