Harry Kane scored his 200th goal for Tottenham Hotspur this week, becoming the third player to reach the milestone for the club. His strike in Spurs' 3-1 victory over Ludogorets was also his 100th away goal and it came on his 300th appearance for the club. Kane then followed that up today by grabbing his 150th Premier League to secure his team a late win away at West Bromwich Albion. Only two players in Premier League history have reached that milestone in fewer games than Kane (218): Alan Shearer (212) and Sergio Agüero (217).

Mainz have converted each of their last 28 penalties in the Bundesliga. Die Nullfünfer maintained their remarkable run, which stretches all the way back to April 2013, by scoring twice from the spot in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Schalke.

Seven years and six months after he last came off the bench to score a La Liga brace – against Real Betis in May 2013 – Lionel Messi repeated the trick against the same opponents on Saturday. It was the fifth time in the Argentinian’s remarkable career that he has scored a top flight double as a substitute.

The win against Milan snapped the Italian giants' unbeaten run of 24 matches in all competitions, which was the club's longest unbeaten run for 24 years.
