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 – is the first time Jose Mourinho has 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 later on in the game with another header after Martin Dubravka parried Erik Lamela’s shot.
