Harry Kane became Tottenham's all-time record scorer as his 267th goal for the club sealed a 1-0 win against Manchester City that severely damaged the champions' bid to retain the Premier League title.
Kane's historic first-half strike at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium took him past Jimmy Greaves into sole possession of the hallowed record.
Greaves had held the milestone since 1970 before Kane moved level with him in his previous appearance against Fulham on January 23.
Kane's landmark moment also made him only the third player to score 200 Premier League goals after Alan Shearer (260) and Wayne Rooney (208).
It has been an unforgettable period for Kane, who drew level with Rooney as England's joint record scorer on 53 goals when he netted against France at the World Cup in December.
Passing Greaves had become increasingly inevitable for the prolific Kane, although ironically City could have ended his record chase if they had been successful in their attempt to sign him in 2021.
However, Kane's remarkable goal feats seemed a distant dream during a difficult start to his career that featured several failed loan spells before he finally emerged as a star.
Greaves, who died aged 81 in 2021, is regarded as one of the most natural goalscorers in football history.
A member of England's 1966 World Cup-winning squad, who netted 44 times for his country, Greaves is the highest scorer in English top-flight history with 357 goals.
For Kane to be alongside such a legendary player is a tribute to his predatory instincts and his perseverance.
The 29-year-old's first Tottenham goal came back in 2011 against Shamrock Rovers in the Europa League.
If that was a low-key way to start an incredible career, his record strike carried far more significance.
Arsenal's shock 1-0 defeat at struggling Everton on Saturday had given City renewed hope they could overhaul the leaders.
But instead Kane's 19th goal in all competitions this season leaves second-placed City trailing five points behind Arsenal, who have a game in hand and host Pep Guardiola's men in a crucial clash on February 15.
Without boss Antonio Conte after emergency surgery to remove his gallbladder, Tottenham were led by his assistant Cristian Stellini and this result surely lifted the recuperating Italian's spirits.
Tottenham's win moved them within one point of fourth-placed Newcastle as they chase Champions League qualification.
It took Kane just 15 minutes to make history as Rodri's careless pass on the edge of the City area allowed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to rob Manuel Akanji.
Hojbjerg slipped his pass to Kane and, with immortality in his sights, the striker guided a slightly scuffed low shot past Ederson with typical efficiency.
Sprinting away to soak up the acclaim, Kane waved towards his family, who were sitting below a scoreboard emblazoned with the message "Congratulations Harry" alongside pictures of him celebrating previous goals for the club.
The England captain was serenaded by Tottenham fans chanting "Harry Kane, he's one of our own" as the product of the club's youth academy walked back to the centre circle beaming a broad grin.
City's response was laboured and Guardiola grew tetchy on the touchline, ranting in frustration after the subdued Erling Haaland opted to pass instead of shoot.
Riyad Mahrez was inches away from easing Guardiola's angst when he crashed a fierce volley against the crossbar.
City came from two goals down at half-time to beat Tottenham 4-2 at the Etihad Stadium in January.
But with City showing no signs of emulating that fightback, Guardiola sent on Kevin De Bruyne, having surprisingly left the Belgium midfielder on the bench for "tactical" reasons.
De Bruyne's presence lifted City and Julian Alvarez's deflected shot looped over before Akanji appealed in vain for a penalty when his shot hit Cristian Romero's arm.
In a tense finale, Tottenham had to play last three minutes with 10 men after Romero was dismissed for a second booking as he chopped down Jack Grealish.
New manager Sean Dyche re-ignited the energy and tenacity missing for so long as Everton won their first match since October but warned there was much more required to drag the club out of danger.
There was an echo of Walter Smith’s ‘Dogs of War’ of the mid-1990s in the 1-0 victory over Premier League leaders Arsenal, a result built on midfield aggression, defensive commitment and finished by James Tarkowski’s header on the hour.
Dyche recalled Abdoulaye Doucoure, who had been training on his own for the final days of Frank Lampard’s reign after a fall-out, for his first league start since August and the Frenchman and Belgium international Amadou Onana both delivered.
The 21-year-old Onana, who only arrived in the summer, was linked with a January move to the Gunners but Everton held onto him despite their struggles and Dyche is now looking to enhance his contribution to the team.
In order to do that he plans to enlist the help of a Belgian he knows well in Steven Defour, a midfield enforcer he had at Burnley, to educate the youngster on the finer points of Premier League football.
“He has got a lot to learn. I think he is a talent, the ugly side of the game he has to learn,” Dyche said of Onana.
“I had a bit of fun with him and I said I am getting you to speak to Steven Defour and we will be doing that.
“He said ‘Steven Defour, I know who he is’ and I said ‘So do I – and when we speak to him next week he will teach you about what the requirements of the Premier League are’.
“He is a young man who is learning. He has come in here with real talent and is fantastic physically and we will get him fitter and sharper and teach him to be a complete player.
“He has a lot to offer but has a long way to go to become a complete player and Steven will help me possibly educate him.
“He (Defour) is a well-respected international footballer for Belgium and he will rub off on him. If he doesn’t I’ll rub off on him.”
After nine defeats in their last 12 Premier League matches this was a victory built on sweat, toil and determination – all hallmarks of an effective Dyche team.
Everton had more shots on target and won more corners than the Gunners despite their 30 per cent possession but where they were most successful was in either penalty area.
Tarkowski epitomised that as he rose highest to win a header in the six-yard box from a corner and then threw himself in the way of everything in his own penalty area.
But Dyche managed to get a tune out of virtually all the players who have been underperforming for over a year now.
And while victory was welcome, the new manager will not be blinded by one result.
“A win was important, how quickly we got it, and a clean sheet is fantastic but come in Monday because you (the players) will be working,” he added.
“It’s not about giving days off, the plan is the plan and it won’t change.
“My way of working is to embrace the past and build the future. The teams of the 80s could be powerful and direct but they could play.
“Now we have to do a version of it in modern style with analytics, recruitment, science and of course organisation.
“We have very good players here and I want to give them that platform and hopefully the freedom to then go on and play.”
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is confident a second league defeat of the season will not derail them and backed his players to bounce back at home to Brentford next weekend.
“The best way to do it is understand who we are, how we got where we are and start to do the basic things right, start to play the way we want to play,” he said.
“Then start to do it better individually and collectively and then you will earn the right to win games.”

Beyoncé’s fans have been waiting for this day: the pop megastar finally announced that she will embark on the long-awaited Renaissance World Tour. She uploaded a post to Instagram early Wednesday morning with the caption: “RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR 2023,” and her official website has been updated to show the tour dates. The tour starts in May in Sweden and will hit Belgium, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Poland, before she makes her way to North America. The first date stateside will be in Philadelphia, Pa., in July and the tour will hit the major U.S. cities before wrapping up in New Orleans, La., on Sept. 27.
Following the release of her seventh album, Renaissance, in July, fans have been itching for a tour announcement, in addition to music videos to accompany the songs. Beyoncé’s last solo tour was the Formation World Tour back in 2016 to support her sixth album, Lemonade. Following that, she went on the On The Run Tour with her husband, Jay-Z, in 2018 after releasing their joint project, Everything Is Love. The announcement of a new tour just before the Grammy Awards on Sunday raises suspicion that Beyoncé might be performing or, at the very least, attending the night’s festivities.
The singer is nominated for nine Grammys at this year’s awards ceremony, which are set to take place on Feb. 5 in Los Angeles. This year, she is up against Adele for multiple awards, including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year. There has been speculation about whether or not Beyoncé would be performing ever since the nominations were announced. The last time fans saw her perform on a major televised stage was at last year’s Oscars ceremony, where she performed “Be Alive” from the King Richard movie for the first time.
Beyoncé most recently took the stage for a private concert at the opening of the Atlantis The Royal resort in Dubai in January. However, she did not perform any songs from Renaissance. Also, given that Beyoncé unveiled the album’s title on Instagram as “act [one],” her dedicated fanbase has been busy theorizing what acts two and three might be. Some have hypothesized that the tour would be act two and then a concert movie would be act three. Others have ventured to guess that this is a three-part album and that Renaissance was just the beginning.
Tickets for the concert will not be an easy get if Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour is any indication. Beyoncé’s fans can click on the date they would like to attend to register for Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program and will then have to wait to see if they are given an access code to purchase tickets to the event. With Verified Fan and the “unexpected” traffic the pre-sale brought to the site, many Swifties likened the ticket-buying process to a warzone. The disastrous rollout drew ire from Swift’s fans and political officials alike. After the ticketing fiasco, the Senate held a hearing to look into whether Live Nation and Ticketmaster have a monopoly over the ticketing industry. This, coupled with the technical problems that Swift fans faced, have Beyoncé fans worrying that finding their way to an actual concert will be nothing short of an ordeal.

Following Paul Onuachu’s deadline day move to Southampton, Belgium Pro League side, KRC Genk have snapped up another Nigerian, Tolu Arokodare, from Amiens to replace the departing big man, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.
Arokodare penned a four-and-a-half-year deal with Genk after the club beat competition from Belgium Pro League rival, Anderlecht.
The 22-year-old striker shares same physical attributes with his countryman Onuachu, standing at just one inch behind the 6ft7in new Southampton front man.
Both are also very deadly in the air.
The deal is reported to be worth €4.5m and could rise to €7m at the end of the contract.
Arokodare is regarded as the best replacement by the club’s head of football, Dimitri De Condé.
“He is already showing flashes of his class today. In addition, there is a lot of stretching to it. Under the wings of our technical staff, he is going to be able to make big steps forward in the coming years. We have proven with several other young talents that KRC Genk is the ideal environment for that,” Conde said.
Arokodare expressed delight at completing the move.
“I am very happy to be in Genk. At this point in my career I can’t imagine a better club,” he told the club’s official website.
“Together with the team I hope to continue the good results of the first half of the season and to win prizes. Paul leaves big shoes to fill. But I am determined to give 100 per cent for this great club.”
After his youth career in Lagos, Arokodare joined Latvian club Valmiera in June 2019. The following season, he was loaned to German Bundesliga club FC Köln for the 2020–21 campaign.
On June 28, 2021, Arokodare joined Ligue 2 club Amiens on a two-year loan deal with an option to buy.

SOUTHAMPTON completed the signing of 6ft7in Genk striker Paul Onuachu, who fans say scored "the worst hat-trick of ALL TIME".
The 28-year-old Nigeria international has earned his move to the Premier League after netting 17 goals across all competitions this term for Genk.
An astonishing 16 of those strikes have come in just 19 Jupiler Pro League games.
A deeper look at his goals record is even more impressive: 164 goals and 34 assists in 329 games, with 85 of those goals coming in Belgium.
The Saints splashed £18million on the Nigeria international, who they hope will help save them from the jaws of relegation.
Nathan Jones' men are sat bottom of the Prem, picking up just 15 points in 20 games.
Onuachu comes with a good goal reputation - but he also comes with "the worst hat-trick of ALL TIME", according to fans.
In a September 2021 game against RFC Seraing, Onuachu netted a 49-minute hat-trick.
His first came in the 41st minute, where he lashed home from one yard out.
But he mis-kicked his first attempt, and nearly had the ball pinched off him on the line.
For his second, he had to place his rebound into the bottom left corner after having a tame shot saved by keeper Guillaume Dietsch.
And his hat-trick-sealing goal came from the penalty spot, kicking the ball straight down the middle.
One fan said on Twitter: "Southampton's new signing Paul Onuachu might have scored the worst hat-trick of all time…"
Another tweeted: "Lmaooooo I think he has flop written all over him from the way he moves."
While others are more optimistic that Saints captain and set-piece King, James Ward-Prowse, will be able to provide the big man with adequate service.
Chelsea paid a Premier League record fee of €121 million (£106.8 million) to sign Enzo Fernandez as Joao Cancelo made a surprise move to Bayern Munich and Jorginho joined Arsenal on a frantic transfer deadline day in Europe.
Premier League clubs have once again massively outspent their rivals in a desperate scramble to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season.
Graham Potter's struggling Chelsea went on a staggering spending spree in January, bringing in a clutch of players including Mykhaylo Mudryk, Benoit Badiashile, Noni Madueke and Joao Felix, who joined on loan from Atletico Madrid.
World Cup winner Fernandez, whose transfer was announced by Portuguese club Benfica in the early hours of Wednesday, is Chelsea's eighth signing of the January window.
The £106.8 million fee eclipses the previous record of £100 million that Manchester City paid Aston Villa for Jack Grealish in 2021.
Fernandez, named Best Young Player of the World Cup for his displays during Argentina's successful campaign in Qatar, only joined Portuguese giants Benfica in July last year, for a reported fee of around £10 million.
The 22-year-old is understood to have signed an eight-and-half-year deal that will run until 2031.
Todd Boehly's consortium has spent hundreds of millions since buying Chelsea at the end of last season but the club are languishing in 10th place in the Premier League.
Bayern Munich signed Manchester City wing-back Cancelo on loan until the end of the season and have an option to buy him for a reported €70 million.
The 28-year-old Portuguese defender joined City from Juventus in 2019 but has been a peripheral figure in Pep Guardiola's team since the World Cup.
"FC Bayern is a great club, one of the best in the world, and it's enormous motivation for me to now play alongside these extraordinary players," Cancelo said.
Premier League leaders Arsenal snapped up Italy midfielder Jorginho from Chelsea for a reported fee of £12 million.
Jorginho, who is understood to have signed an 18-month deal at the Emirates Stadium, told Arsenal.com: "I'm very excited for this new challenge and I just can't wait to be on the pitch.
"Everything has happened so fast. I was a bit surprised, but I took the opportunity of this amazing challenge."
The Gunners, bidding to win their first Premier League crown since 2004, signed Belgium forward Leandro Trossard from Brighton and Poland defender Jakub Kiwior from Italian side Spezia earlier this month.
Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham announced the signing of defender Pedro Porro from Sporting Lisbon minutes before the deadline.
The right-back has signed on loan until the end of the season with an obligation to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
Manchester United announced they had signed Bayern Munich midfielder Marcel Sabitzer on loan early Wednesday.
United were forced into deadline-day action on Tuesday following an ankle injury to Christian Eriksen, which is set to rule the Denmark midfielder out until early May.
Manager Erik ten Hag completed the loan signing of Netherlands forward Wout Weghorst earlier in the month.
High-flying Newcastle have followed up their signing of Anthony Gordon from Everton by securing Scotland Under-21 fullback Harrison Ashby from West Ham.
Relegation-threatened Bournemouth brought in Ukraine defender Illia Zabarnyi from Dynamo Kyiv for a reported fee of around £24 million before Sassuolo and Ivory Coast midfielder Hamed Traore became their sixth signing of the month.
Nottingham Forest continued the dramatic overhaul of their squad since they won promotion last year, signing Atletico Madrid defender Felipe and Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.
Forest also brought in Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Keylor Navas on loan until the end of the season.
Leicester signed Australia defender Harry Souttar from Stoke on a five-and-a-half year deal, with Ayoze Perez joining Real Betis for the rest of the season.
Southampton spent a potential club record on Kamaldeen Sulemana from Rennes, with the Ghana forward's arrival costing a potential £22 million.
Belgium international Thorgan Hazard has signed for Dutch club PSV Eindhoven on loan from Borussia Dortmund.
Super Eagles star, Paul Onuachu, has reportedly joined Southampton on a £15.8 million deal from Belgium’s Genk.
According to hampshirelive.news, the 6ft 7ins forward was expected to undergo his medical with the club, yesterday, ahead of signing a three-and-a-half-year contract at St Mary’s, where he’ll hope to fire to them to Premier League safety.
Belgian journalist, Sacha Tavolieri, said a deal has been reached between Genk and Southampton for a transfer fee of €18million (£15.8million) plus bonuses of around €3 million for Onuachu.
The 28-year-old has scored 16 goals in 20 appearances so far for club and country this season and is top of the scoring charts in the Belgian Pro League, which Genk currently lead with a six-point advantage over second-placed Union Saint-Gilloise.
Meanwhile, Arsenal has signed Chelsea midfielder Jorginho on an 18-month deal for £12 million. The 31-year-old, who joined Chelsea from Napoli in 2018, is into the final six months of his contract at Stamford Bridge.
The Gunners turned their attentions to Jorginho after having two bids rejected by Brighton for Moises Caicedo. Jorginho is Arsenal’s third signing of the January window, the club having previously bought Poland defender Jakub Kiwior from Spezia for 20m euros (£17.6m) and Belgium striker Leandro Trossard, who moved from Brighton for £21m.
Mikel Arteta’s side are five points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand on the sides immediately below them.
Chelsea seem to be the busiest club on deadline day with the Blues ‘signing’ Argentine star, Enzo Fernandez for a record £105.6 million.
According to reports in Portugal, Enzo Fernandez, was in Lisbon, yesterday, to undergo a medical to help facilitate a possible move from Benfica to Chelsea.
Chelsea had earlier allowed Jorginho and Ziyech to leave for Arsenal and PSG respectively, but they held on to midfielder, Connor Gallagher despite interest from five Premier league clubs.
Manchester United brought in Austrian midfielder, Marcel Sabitzer from Bayern Munich, while Sporting Lisbon full-back, Pedro Porro, has moved to Tottenham.
Nigerian forward, Paul Onuachu has penned a three-and-a-half-year deal with struggling English Premier League side, Southampton, from Genk.
Southampton and Genk agreed on a £15.8m deal plus add-ons for the lanky striker, who was also linked with another Premier League club, Everton.
Everton were offered the chance to sign the striker after Saints’ initial offer was declined by Genk ahead of deadline day.
The striker will later travel to England to resume at St. Mary’s after completing his medicals in France.
The news will come as a big blow to the Toffees, who had entered into negotiations with the player’s representatives and hope to have the striker to help resolve their goal-scoring crisis, having found the back of the net just 15 times this season.
The Blues are yet to make a signing in the transfer window and the Nigerian could have been their first buy on deadline day.
Onuachu has been in top form for Genk since joining them from FC Midtjylland in 2019.
The 28-year-old has scored 16 goals in 19 appearances in the Belgium Jupiler league this season to stand as the leading scorer.
The Saints will be hopeful he will continue his scoring form to lift them out of relegation as they are bottom of the Premier League table with 15 points from 20 matches.
Onuachu will link up with compatriot Joe Aribo, who also joined the club last summer from Glasgow Rangers.

Nice signed Terem Moffi on Tuesday after beating southern rival Marseille for the prolific Nigeria striker on the final day of the transfer window.
Nice said Moffi, who joined from French club Lorient and has been one of the best players in the league this season, they signed a loan deal with an obligation to make the deal permanent.
“We’re delighted that Terem’s determination to sign for OGC Nice, combined with our own, has led to this outcome," Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivère said. “It’s an investment that matches our ambitions.”
The 23-year-old Moffi arrived in the French league in 2020 after stints in Lithuania and Belgium. He scored 35 goals in 90 matches with Lorient. Moffi’s 12 goals this season put him second in the scoring chart, one behind Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé.
Marseille was interested in signing Moffi, with the striker set to be part of a reported swap deal that would see Bamba Dieng sign with Lorient. Senegal forward did sign a four-year contract with Lorient last week, but Moffi opted for Nice.
Nice said Moffi could start as soon as Sunday against Marseille.
