Harry Kane could not quite extend his lead as the record scorer for Spurs against the Big Six because of Heung-min Son, but Richarlison is after them.

From the most obvious of leaders to the forgettably excellent Dele Alli and memorably effective Emmanuel Adebayor, here is every player to have scored for Spurs in Premier League matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United since the start of the 2010/11 season – the first in which they comprised the top six.

We have even broken it down into goals against each opponent before confirming the overall totals. These numbers are accurate as of the last Arsenal game versus a Big Six side (2-0 v Manchester United on August 19, 2023).
