Tottenham striker Harry Kane scores 100th Premier League goal

Tottenham striker Harry Kane became the second fastest player in Premier League history to reach 100 goals with a penalty against Liverpool.

Kane scored the spot-kick in added time as Spurs twice came from behind to earn an unlikely point at Anfield. He had seen Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius save an earlier penalty.

After the game Kane told Sky Sports : “I was praying [I would get the second chance]. You don’t expect to especially when it’s deep into stoppage time but thankfully I got the second chance and I’m delighted to get my 100th goal in the Premier League.

“It’s great to be in that 100 club. It was nice to get something out of the game after a roller coaster of emotions.”

He becomes the 27th player to join the “100 club” with only the division’s record goal scorer Alan Shearer quicker to the milestone, having reached it in 124 appearances.

Kane’s century came in his 141st appearance, fewer than Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (147) and Arsenal legends Thierry Henry (160) and Ian Wright (178).
