Harry Kane became the third fastest player to score 150 Premier League goals by netting the winner in Tottenham's 1-0 victory over West Brom on Sunday.
With the game looking set to end all square, the England captain flicked Matt Doherty's cross over Sam Johnstone in the 88th minute to earn his side all three points. Not only did the strike send Spurs to the top of the table, it also marked a significant personal milestone for Kane.
It was the 27-year-old's 150th Premier League goal in just 218 games - making him the third quickest player to complete the feat so far. Manchester City all-time top scorer Sergio Aguero managed it in one game fewer while Alan Shearer got there in 212 games.
The news caps off a fine week for Kane. On Thursday, he bagged his 200th Spurs goal in all competitions, netting against Ludogorets in the Europa League. He is also now the joint ninth highest scorer in Premier League history but remains some way off current leader Shearer on 260 goals.
Speaking after the West Brom win, Kane revealed he was delighted at the persistence his side showed to grab such a late winner.
“It was a big battle. Second half we played a lot better than the first. It was just about getting that breakthrough and thankfully I got a little header in to mark the 150," he said (via the Express)."As the game opened up, we were creating more chances. They blocked a couple off the line, the keeper made some good saves. We had to keep persisting. When you nick one with a few minutes left, it's just about defending your lead and we did that.
"The last few games, you've seen us dig deep. These are the points you might look back on in March, April that were massive so we have to keep it going. We'd have taken being top of the league at this stage at the start of the season but we know there are a lot of big games to come. So far, so good."
