Kane breaks Alan Shearer Premier League record

Harry Kane finally got off the mark and surpassed a Magpies legend at St James’ Park.

The Tottenham skipper beat the offside trap to loft the ball over Karl Darlow and notch his first goal of the season.

The strike made it 2-1 to Spurs and the goal saw Kane move past the great Alan Shearer in the table of goals scored away from home.

The 28-year-old now has 88 goals in just 128 Premier League games on the road.

Newcastle hero Shearer bagged 87 away goals in his 18-year career – and needed 91 more games to reach that mark..

Top of the list sits former Manchester United and Everton talisman Wayne Rooney, who scored 94 goals in 243 away fixtures.

Kane’s effort came during a dramatic afternoon on Tyneside.

A late Eric Dier own-goal made for a nervy finish but the visitors held on for a 3-2 victory in the north east.

The players were taken off the pitch as medical staff carrying a defibrillator rushed to the supporter’s aid just before half-time.

Newcastle later confirmed the fan has been ‘stabilised’ and was on the way to hospital.
