LONDON: Harry Kane became Tottenham Hotspur's joint all-time record goal-scorer with the winner in his side's 1-0 victory at Fulham in the Premier League on Monday.

Tottenham had been second-best in the first half at Craven Cottage but Kane produced a trademark finish on the stroke of half-time to notch his 266th goal for the Londoners.

Kane's effort drew him level with the late Jimmy Greaves whose 266 goals came in 379 games. England skipper Kane reached the total in 415 appearances.

Fulham were the better side until Kane's right-footed finish with Harrison Reed, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Willian all going close to giving the hosts the lead.

Kane even had the chance to break the record after half-time but headed straight at Fulham keeper Bernd Leno.

Victory revived Tottenham's top-four hopes, leaving them in fifth place with 36 points, three behind Newcastle United and Manchester United, who have both played a game less.

Fulham remain in seventh place with 31 points.

While Tottenham have been wildly inconsistent of late, Kane remains the most reliable of goal-scorers with Monday's effort taking him to 16 league goals this season.

As well as being one goal away from surpassing Greaves, he needs just one more in the league to become only the third player to register 200 goals in the Premier League — joining Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney.

"It was a tough game, a really important three points for us today after the last two results," Kane told Sky Sports, referring to Tottenham's defeats by Arsenal and Manchester City. "A tough week but a clean sheet and good 1-0 win.

"We wanted to get back to basics and clean sheet will be important if we want to stay by the Champions League spots."
