Harry Kane went past 200 club goals to hand Jose Mourinho a first Premier League win at St James' Park at the eighth attempt as Tottenham beat Newcastle 3-1.

Kane brought up the milestone before his 15th league goal of the season took him past 20 in all competitions for the sixth successive campaign and clinched the points after Matt Ritchie's piledriver had cancelled out Son Heung-min's opener.

In the process, he ended Mourinho's barren run on Tyneside.  Victory kept Spurs in the hunt for European qualification, while a third successive defeat for Steve Bruce's men dented his hopes of beating the 45 points the Magpies managed last season under predecessor Rafael Benitez.

Newcastle went behind with 27 minutes gone, Fabian Schar over-ran the ball as he tried to play out from the back, inviting Lucas Moura to intercept, and he, Kane and Giovani Lo Celso shifted it on to Son, who cut inside before firing into the bottom corner through DeAndre Yedlin's legs.

It would have been 2-0 on the half-hour had Martin Dubravka not thrown himself to his left to turn away Son's deflected effort from distance.

Dwight Gayle saw a glancing header from Jonjo Shelvey's cross come back off the post with Hugo Lloris beaten.

Newcastle were level within 11 minutes of the restart when Serge Aurier could only help the ball into Ritchie's path after substitute Valentino Lazaro had surged into the box, and he lashed an unstoppable shot past Lloris.

Newcastle, however, had been level for just four minutes when Steven Bergwijn announced his arrival from the bench with a pinpoint cross for Kane to out-jump Emil Krafth and head past Dubravka, reaching his landmark.

Kane wrapped up the win at the death when  he stooped to head home a rebound from from a Erik Lamela's shot.
