There are just two things that are happening for sure in life, death, and Harry Kane scoring goals on a North London Derby. That was not the exemption at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as the striker netted his eleventh goal in the rivalry to become the north London derby's all-time highest goalscorer.
Kane surpassed former attacker Emmanuel Adebayor, who previously scored 10 during spells with both Spurs and Gunners.
“It's nice, obviously a great assist from 'Sonny',” Kane said to being the all time leading goalscorer in the North London derby. “But like we always say it, the most important thing is the three points. It's been a tough few games but we've come out well, so we just a gotta keep it going.”
Aside from reaching that milestone, Kane scored the 250th goal of his professional career for club and country combined, as well as his 100th at home for Tottenham in all competitions.
Under Jose Mourinho, the 27 year-old has become more than just a striker though. Kane has not only recorded eight Premier League goals this season, but also leads the league in assists with 11, eight of those being to Heung-Min Son.
