How many can he realistically overtake this season, George Hunt, Jermain Defoe, the 25 extra goals of Cliff Jones is stretching it a bit. Another prolific season next season and Harry Kane could see himself in 3rd spot.

How does the scoring chart look if we calculate on percentage scoring rate to appearances?

SPURS – ALL-TIME TOP 10 GOALSCORERS

  1. Jimmy Greaves - 70.18%
  2. George Hunt - 69.70% (Inside Forward/Centre Forward)
  3. Harry Kane - 66.67%
  4. Bobby Smith - 65.62%
  5. Martin Chivers - 47.41%
  6. Teddy Sheringham - 44.77%
  7. Len 'The Duke' Duquemin - 43.65% 
  8. Cliff Jones - 42.06% (Left Winger)
  9. Jermain Defoe - 39.39%
  10. Alan Gilzean - 30.30% (Second Striker)

It of course has to be noted the different positions players played and different formations. These days teams generally play with one striker, go back 30 years and there were generally a pair of strikers, although one was the main striker, much in the way Harry Kane and Dele Alli played on many occasions last season.

Alan Gilzean, known as the King of White Hart Lane was a second striker who played much of the time with Martin Chivers, also on the list.

Jermain Defoe made many substitute appearances, he made 94 for us in the Premier League alone so this will impact on his percentage figure and Cliff Jones was considered the best left winger in the world during his day. His scoring rate is therefore quite remarkable.
