Kane joins Premier League 100 goal club in Anfield thriller

The Tottenham striker netted his century from the spot deep into injury time in Spurs' 2-2 draw with Liverpool after previously missing a penalty

Harry Kane has scored his 100th Premier League goal, netting a stoppage-time penalty in Tottenham's 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.

The England international scored in the most dramatic of circumstances, netting after Virgil van Dijk had been adjudged to have kicked Erik Lamela in the area.

Kane had previously missed a penalty with the score at 1-1 in the 87th minute, and Mohamed Salah looked to have taken advantage, scoring a brilliant solo goal to seemingly hand the Reds all three points.

But the 24-year-old stepped up again when the second spot-kick was awarded, and sent Loris Karius the wrong way to become the second fastest player in Premier League history to net 100 goals, doing so in just 141 appearances.

When asked about how he reached the century, Pochettino said of Kane: "He has the personality to have big, big balls."

Only Alan Shearer, the league's all-time top scorer, has achieved the record faster, doing so in 124 games.

Kane has also played for Norwich City in the Premier League, but never scored, meaning that his entire century has come at Spurs.

A total of 60 of his goals have come from his right foot, 14 with his head and 26 with his left foot. He has scored 88 goals inside the box, and 12 from outside, including one direct free-kick.

Over the course of his 100 goals, Kane has scored eight hat-tricks - the third highest in the Premier League, behind Alan Shearer and Robbie Fowler - and is also the fourth-youngest player to score 100, behind Michael Owen, Fowler and Wayne Rooney.

His 100 goals have been boosted by scoring nine times against Leicester City, in just six games, while he has netted eight goals in eight appearances against Stoke City.

The result on Sunday leaves Spurs fifth, two points behind the Reds, who remain third.

Chelsea, however, can move third on Monday evening if they defeat Watford.
