Harry Kane surpasses Thierry Henry goal involvement record vs West Ham

Harry Kane produced yet another sensational performance for Tottenham Hotspur, this time against West Ham United in the Premier League.

The England captain put on a masterclass in centre-forward play before a shocking collapse from the team resulted in a 3-3 draw.

West Ham simply had no answer for the 27-year-old in the first-half especially, and showed absolutely no signs of fatigue following his exploits with England.

Kane was always likely to deliver against the Hammers given his fine goalscoring record against them, and he hardly took any time at all to wreak havoc.

Within just 16 minutes he had three more goal involvements to his name for the season, setting up Heung-min Son with a glorious ball over the top before adding two goals himself, and that was enough to see him break a Premier League record.

 

The star now has 12 goal involvements (five goals, seven assists), surpassing none other than Arsenal legend Thierry Henry who had been holding the record since the 2004/05 season with 11.
