Kane Across All Competitions

Given Kane can score in almost any fashion, it should figure he should be able to score in any competition. Harry Kane has scored in every official competition in which Tottenham competes. Naturally, the Premier League is where Kane has made the most appearances (217) as well as the most goals (149).

It makes sense that many of Kane’s goals (75%) come in the Premier League as that is where Kane has played the majority – 217 of 300 (72%) of his games. By pure numbers is looks like Kane scores in 70% of all Premier League matches he plays, but that is not quite true as those 149 goals have come in 103 different games. Meaning Kane scores in about 48% of all Premiere League games he appears in. Basically, Kane scores at a rate better than one goal in every two games, phenomenal.

Kane is good in Europe of course, scoring 36 goals in all European competitions, which includes his 5 goals in Europa League qualifying this season. While the UEL qualifying is the one ‘competition’ where Kane has scored more goals than he has played games, with 5 goals in just 3 matches, there is one other competition where Kane seems to score nearly every game – the Champions League.

Harry Kane has played a total of 24 Champions League games and in those 24 games the Tottenham talisman has netted 20 times. That is a goal in 83% of all appearances by straight numbers, although those 20 goals have come in 14 different matches, meaning Kane really scores in ~60% of all Champions League games he appears in. Throw in 15 goals in Cup competitions, and Kane just scores, no matter the competition, he just scores.
