London:

Michael Owen became the seventh player to score 150 Premier League goals when he netted his first goal for Stoke City in a 3-1 defeat at Swansea City on Saturday.

The 33-year-old scored with a header from a Cameron Jerome cross in the 90th minute to claim his first goal for Stoke since leaving Manchester United in the close season.

It was his first goal since he scored for United against Aldershot Town in the League Cup in October 2011 and his first in the top flight since the final day of the 2010-11 campaign.

The former England striker joins Alan Shearer, Andy Cole, Thierry Henry, Robbie Fowler, Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney in reaching the milestone.
