Tottenham Hotspur star, Harry Kane on
Saturday overtook former Spurs and Gunners striker, Emmanuel Adebayor to set a new premier League North London derby goal record following his side’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal.
A goal from Aaron Ramsey and a strike from Harry Kane gave both teams one point each at Wembley.
According to Opta Joe, Harry Kane’s goal against Arsenal means the England captain is now the outright leading scorer with 9 goals in Premier League North London derbies, overtaking Adebayor, who has 8 goals.
Speaking after the match, Kane told the BBC Sport: “It was another good derby, a
passionate one, it had a bit of everything.
“In the first-half we were disappointed; we created a few chances but were not clinical enough. ‘The second-half was just about fighting for the team and club and we did that and we got the goal we deserved.
Towards the end of the game it went a bit crazy.”
“For us it was important to stop the losing streak,” Kane added. “At this point it might give us a little boost with a big game in the champions League and then Southampton.
“Over the last week we have put ourselves under pressure but we have done it in the pa
st and every game is a big game.”
