It took seven games into the 2021 / 22 Premier League season for the Tottenham Hotspur striker and England Captain, Harry Kane to score his first goal in the Premier League. 

Kane, who led the league in goals and assists last season, led Spurs to their second consecutive win in the Premier League, getting past Newcastle United away. 

Kane's drought in the Premier League didn't really translate into other competitions, considering the English striker had previously scored five goals for Spurs in the UEFA Europa Conference League, as well as one goal in the Carabao Cup.

The 28 year-old also scored three goals with England in the European World Cup qualifiers this season. 

Words

''It's nice to get off the mark,'' Kane said after the game.

''There is always a lot of talk when I go a few games without scoring but I'm a man who wants to score in every game I play. At the same time, I don't panic when there's a few games I don't score.

Whether it is Premier League, Europe, international, or whatever it may be I am ready for every game and every chance I get. I think this was my 10th goal this season and hopefully I can add a few more in the coming games.''

Record

Not only did Kane score, but he also recorded his first assist of the season, and by linking up with Heung-Min Son, the duo have now combined for 35 Premier League goals for Spurs.

They are just one goal away from equalling the competition record held by Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

Records don't stop there for Harry Kane, who has now scored 88 goals in 128 away matches in the Premier League, and is now the outright second-most of any player just behind Wayne Rooney (94 in 243).
