Spurs striker has netted against every Premier League club he has faced and can now add Blades to the list

Harry Kane can extend a unique Premier League scoring record when Tottenham Hotspur host Sheffield United on Saturday.

Chris Wilder's Blades will be the 29th different Premier League side Kane has faced and the Spurs frontman has found the net against all previous 28.

Kane is the only player in Premier League history to have a flawless record.

He sits ahead of four-time Golden Boot winner Thierry Henry, who netted against 34 of the 35 opponents he met during his two spells at Arsenal - Swansea City the only side who kept him at bay.

Sergio Aguero of Manchester City has also only failed to score against one team, boasting a 96.9 per cent success rate.

Bolton Wanderers were the only team to stand between the Argentinian and a perfect score.
