There’s no stopping the ultimate goal machine – Harry Kane.

The English striker keeps getting better and better.

His two goals against Nottingham forest in the Premier League mean he has reached another personal milestone: over 200 career goals.

This latest milestone comes a week after he broke the record for most Premier League goals for a single club by netting against Wolverhampton.

The England captain netted the opener with a scuffed finish inside five minutes after being set up by Dejan Kulusevski.

By setting up his teammate, Kulusevski became the third fastest player to reach 10 assists in the Premier league, taking just 21 games to do so.

This was the 200th league goal of Kane’s career.

Later, he took his tally to 201 with a late diving header following a cross from substitute Richarlison.

The England captain could have bagged a hat-trick had he not been denied by Dean Henderson from the penalty spot.

Dean Henderson saved the penalty 11 minutes into the second half after Forest defender Steve Cook had handled the ball inside the six-yard box.

Of Kane’s 201 league goals, 187 have come for Tottenham in the EPL, placing him joint-third on the competition’s list of all-time leading scorers.

Nine were scored at Championship level during loan spells at Millwall and Leicester.

Kane had also netted five times in League One for Leyton Orient in the 2010/11 season.

The result sees Antonio Conte’s side maintain their unbeaten start to the season and sit just two points behind leaders Arsenal.

Harry Kane is now joint third with Andy Cole on the Premier League’s all-time top goalscorers list.

Wayne Rooney (208 goals) and Alan Shearer (260) are ahead of the Spurs striker.

It’s only a matter of time before Kane catches the now DC United coach Wayne Rooney.

If Kane stays fit, there is every chance he will also overtake Shearer becoming the League’s highest scoring player of all time.
