Kane reaches 100 EPL goals in dramatic style
    2018-February-6  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THERE couldn’t have been a more dramatic way for Harry Kane to bring up 100 goals in the English Premier League (EPL).

It was the fifth minute of injury time, Liverpool was leading 2-1 in an action-packed game at Anfield, and home fans were seething after Tottenham was awarded a penalty — courtesy of an intervention by the assistant referee.

Kane already had a spot kick saved in the 87th minute, and was seen looking to the skies in disbelief after Mohamed Salah restored Liverpool’s lead with a stunning individual goal in the first minute of stoppage time.

This was Kane’s chance to make amends. He took it.

The England striker slotted away the penalty with what was virtually the last kick of the game to rescue a 2-2 draw for Tottenham and reach a significant scoring milestone in just 141 games in England’s top division. Only Alan Shearer (124 games) has got there quicker.

“I was nervous,” Kane said. “It was a big moment, with a lot of pressure. But I stuck to the routine.

“It’s great to be in that 100 club now, and it’s great to get something from the game after that roller-coaster of emotions.”

It was a big moment in the race for Champions League qualification, too.

Liverpool could have moved five points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham with 12 games left, but the gap remains only two points. Chelsea is sandwiched between them, while Arsenal, boosted by two high-profile January signings in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, is four points further back.

It looks set to go down to the wire.

In the other game Sunday, Newcastle moved a point clear of the relegation zone by drawing 1-1 at Crystal Palace.

Kane’s last-gasp penalty overshadowed two of the best goals seen in the Premier League this season. They couldn’t have been more different, either.

Victor Wanyama’s 80th-minute equalizer, which canceled out Salah’s goal in the third minute, was a fierce, first-time drive off his laces that flew into the top corner from 30 meters out. He had only come on as a substitute a minute earlier.

Salah’s second was also a goal of beauty. The forward wriggled past Ben Davies, cut inside from the right, then nipped between two challenges before poking a rising shot past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. (SD-Agencies)
