Harry Kane didn’t realize he was sitting on 150 Tottenham Hotspur goals, but he did know his side was in danger of dropping three points at Crystal Palace.

The English striker got his milestone goal and Spurs picked up a Top Four place when he nodded Christian Eriksen‘s 89th minute corner kick off Wayne Hennessey and into the goal at Selhurst Park.

Hennessey and Palace’s stacked back line had mostly flustered Spurs on the day, though many of the misses were more on the visitors than anything done by the hosts.

Now fourth pending the result of Manchester United-Chelsea, Kane admits he had his doubts about Sunday’s visit to South London. From the BBC:

“We left that very late,” Kane said. “I thought it wasn’t going to be our day, because we had a few chances, especially me, and Serge Aurier had one at the end too, but we kept going until the end and eventually got our rewards.”

While Kane might’ve not realized he was on the precipice of 150 for Spurs, Eric Dier proffered a comment on his prolific teammate.

“It’s getting boring isn’t it? He just keeps getting the records. But he’s a class act, he just keeps getting the goals at vital moments.”
