Kane moves level with Rooney in all-time scorer rankings

With his brilliant volley at Anfield Harry Kane moved alongside Wayne Rooney into second in the all-time scoring charts for the Premier League. 

The Tottenham Hotspur striker’s goal was his 208th in the competition, level with the legendary Everton and Manchester United  forward and Premier League Hall of Fame inductee. 

Kane has reached the mark in only 316 appearances, while Rooney played 491 times overall in the Premier League for his total. His rate of 0.66 goals a match is bettered only by Sergio Aguero‘s 0.67.

The only player above Kane in the rankings is Alan Shearer, on 260 Premier League goals.

Kane is now on 25 Premier League goals for the season, the fourth time he has reached that total in a campaign. Again, only Shearer can match that feat. 

He can go alone in second in the rankings when Spurs host Crystal Palace on Saturday.
