Who has the most away goals in Premier League history? Harry Kane sets new English top flight record

Harry Kane

Tottenham ace Harry Kane became the Premier League's highest away goalscorer in history on Wednesday as he fired his side two goals ahead against Brighton.

While Spurs won 2-0 and stayed in the hunt for a Champions League place in the Premier League table, the night was all about a new individual record in Premier League play.

Kane's strike brought him to 12 league goals for the season, leveling Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane in second place in the rankings. More notably, it also earned him a slice of Premier League history as well as putting Spurs on the way to a valuable win on the road.

Spurs moved to 48 points on the season with the victory, in seventh place and level with sixth-placed West Ham in the Premier League table. Spurs three points back of Arsenal in the final Champions League place, with the Gunners holding one game in hand.

Kane's new Premier League record

After Cristian Romero had put the Londoners ahead in the first half with a fortuitous effort, Kane was on hand just before the hour mark to double his side's lead. The England striker powered through Brighton's rearguard to pick up a precise pass from Rodrigo Bentancur and finished with ease past Robert Sanchez in the Seagulls net.

Kane's strike was his 95th in away games in the Premier League, breaking the mark previously set by Wayne Rooney.

While Rooney needed 243 games to reach his tally, Kane has beaten his record in just 139, more than 100 matches fewer than the former Manchester United star. In fact, Kane is the only player on the list with less than 200 away matches played, and the 28-year-old could extend his lead considerably through the rest of his career.

Who are the top away goalscorers in Premier League history?

Harry Kane set the new mark for most away goals in Premier League history, and he did so in emphatic fashion.
