England striker Harry Kane delighted to surpass Arsenal's great Thierry Henry in the all-time Premier League scoring list after netting his 176th goal in Monday's Tottenham Hotspur over Everton.

The England international skipper, who climbed to sixth in the Premier League scoring chart led by Alan Shearer (260), said keeping things simple had helped him in his career.

"It's all about getting those chances, I'm always confident I'm going to hit the target," Kane told the press. "I always try to keep the ball low. Hard work and practice, no secret.

"Thierry was one of the greatest strikers we have seen, so it's nice to go above him in the scorer's list and hopefully they keep coming."

Kane has been in blistering form in recent weeks with five goals in his last four league matches.

He sits one goal behind current Everton boss and Chelsea great Frank Lampard (177) and has the chance to overtake former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero (184) and ex-Manchester United forward Andy Cole (187).

Shearer (260) and Wayne Rooney (208) are the only players with more than 200 goals in the competition.

Former Tottenham and United striker Teddy Sheringham said that Kane was the best No 9 in the world.

"He has been for the last four or five years, he's proving it year in and year out," said Sheringham, who scored 146 goals in the Premier League.

"It's great to get there, but staying at the top and still convincing people he's the best - that's why he is the best."
