Kane scores 201st club goal as Spurs win at Newcastle

Harry Kane went past 200 career club goals with a second-half double as Tottenham Hotspur won 3-1 at Newcastle United in the Premier League on Wednesday to boost their European qualification hopes.

Minutes after Matt Ritchie’s piledriver had drawn the hosts level, Kane’s clinical header on the hour put the visitors back in front, taking him to another landmark.

Kane sealed the points in the last minute with another header to take his career tally to 201.

Son Heung-min had given Tottenham the lead in the 27th minute with his 11th league goal of the campaign.

Tottenham rose to seventh on 55 points with two games remaining, one point behind sixth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers in the race for a Europa League spot.

Kane’s 201 club goals have come in 350 appearances in all competitions with 185 of them for Tottenham.

It was also a milestone of sorts for Spurs manager Jose Mourinho who claimed a first league win at Newcastle.

“201 in 350 league games — that’s not bad!” Kane told BT Sport. “It’s nice to get to that milestone but the points are the most important thing.

“Hopefully, I’ll get a couple of more before the season ends.

“A tough game and three massive points. We didn’t play as well as we could have but we got the result in the end.”

Newcastle were unfortunate to be down at halftime, although they were culpable for Son’s strike.
