Kane surpasses 200th goal-mark as Tottenham beat Newcastle





Harry Kane passed 200 club goals in his career as Tottenham Hotspur beat Newcastle United to boost their Europa League qualification hopes.

The victory – which takes Spurs up to seventh – was the first time Jose Mourinho had won a Premier League game at St James’ Park in his eighth attempt..

The visitors led in the first half when Son Heung-min drilled a low shot into the bottom corner moments after the drinks break disrupted Newcastle’s dominance.

Dwight Gayle almost levelled when his header hit the post and Matt Ritchie blasted an equaliser home 11 minutes after the restart.

But that parity only lasted four minutes as Kane headed home a deep cross from substitute Steven Bergwijn.

That was the England captain’s 200th club goal in 350 appearances, with 184 coming for Spurs and the other 16 for loan clubs Millwall, Leyton Orient and Leicester.

He got the 201st late on with another header after Martin Dubravka parried Erik Lamela’s shot.

It was an impressive performance from Newcastle, who managed 22 shots to Spurs’ eight, but their season is just petering out as uncertainty over their Saudi Arabian takeover continues.
