Kane scores 100th Tottenham goal with stunner against Everton

The 24-year-old striker needed 169 appearances to reach the milestone after going on a run of three games without finding the net

Harry Kane scored his 100th goal for Tottenham Hotspur when he gave them the lead against Everton on Saturday.

The England international had failed to find the net in Spurs' first three games, continuing his streak of goalless Augusts, but it took just 28 minutes for him to break the deadlock against Ronald Koeman's side.

It sees the 24-year-old reach a milestone, having now scored a century of goals in all competitions for Spurs. He needed just 169 games to get there - 12 fewer than Thierry Henry required to score his 100 for Arsenal, according to Opta.

It will likely be the first of many this season for a player who finished the league's top scorer with 29 in 30 games in 2016-17.
