Another north London derby, another goal for Harry Kane.

The 26-year-old’s penalty put Tottenham 2-0 up against Arsenal in the north London derby thanks to Granit Xhaka’s foul on Heung-min Son.

And Kane’s goal saw the England international achieve a brilliant record in north London derbies.

This was Kane’s tenth goal against Spurs’ bitter rivals, putting him level with former Spurs and Gunners frontman Emmanuel Adebayor and ex-Spurs star Bobby Smith.

Kane just needs one more goal to be the highest scorer in north London derbies ever and almost got it in the second-half but his swerving effort cannoned off the post, while he believed he should have had another penalty later in the game.

However, Kane’s goal was not enough to give Spurs the win over their bitter rivals as the enthralling contest finished 2-2.

Christian Eriksen gave Mauricio Pochettino’s men the lead after Bernd Leno couldn’t keep hold of Erik Lamela’s weak right-footed effort.

Kane doubled their lead five minutes before the break but Alexandre Lacazette’s emphatic finish just before half-time reduced Spurs’ lead.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang levelled the scores on 71 minutes.

Will Kane break the record when Spurs face Arsenal in April?
