Last season was Tottenham’s dream season. They were in their best form, reaching the Champions League final, which they lost to Liverpool. Moreover, Spurs finished fourth on the Premier League table. Over the years, Spurs have strived to find a good striker who can score more than 30 goals in a season to help them win the EPL title. Below is a list of top scorers that would have dominated one of the leading sports gambling markets in Tottenham’s history.
1. Jimmy Greaves (266 goals)
Jimmy moved to Spurs in December 1961. He made his first appearance for the reserve team on 9 December 1961 and scored twice in their 4-1 victory over Plymouth Argyle reserves at Home Park. Jimmy scored a hat-trick in his first-team appearance in 5-2 win over Blackpool at White Hart Lane.
Jimmy Greaves is Spurs’ highest ever goalscorer and one of the highest goal scorers in the history of the English top flight. The former Spurs player scored 220 goals for Tottenham in the First Division, nine in the European competitions and 37 in the domestic cups. Jimmy is considered one of Tottenham’s greatest strikers.
2. Bobby Smith (208 goals)
Smith moved to Tottenham from Chelsea in December 1955 and was an integral part of the famous Spurs team of 1960/1961. Smith was Spurs’ top scorer in the double-winning season, scoring 33 goals in 43 appearances and is second on Tottenham’s all-time top scorer list, netting 208 goals in 317 senior games.
3. Harry Kane (181 goals)
Since his arrival in Tottenham, the Englishman has taken the Premier League by storm winning several golden boots and emerging as Spurs’ top scorer for the past five seasons scoring more than 30 goals.
The England captain has now 181 goals for Spurs, putting him above Martin Chivers and into third place in the all-time top scorer in Spurs’ history. Kane needs 27 more goals to reach Bobby Smith’s 208 goals, while 85 more will put him level with the legendary Jimmy Greaves.
4. Martin Chivers (174 goals)
Martin signed for Tottenham from Southampton in January 1968 for a then-record transfer fee of £125,000. In his first appearance for Spurs, Chivers scored the opener for his team in their 2-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday.
Later in the same month, he scored both goals in the Londoner’s 2-2 F.A. Cup draw with Manchester United. Chivers scored ten goals in his 23 league, and cup appearances and the 1968/69 season in September he scored his first hat-trick for Tottenham in their 4-1 2nd round League Cup win at Aston Villa.
5. Cliff Jones (159 goals)
Jones joined Spurs in February 1958 and made his first appearance for the club on 22nd February 1958 in their away game against Arsenal at Highbury. Jones became a prolific goal scorer for Spurs, netting 25 times in all appearances in the 1959/60 season.
Moreover, Jones was a key member of the double-winning team of the 1960/61 season, scoring 19 times that season. He was also part of the successful Tottenham team in the 1962 FA Cup Final and the 1963 European Cup Final.
