Kane had been tied on 43 London derby goals with Arsenal legend Henry, but has now overtaken the Frenchman with his goal at the Emirates.

He became the first player in league history to reach 100 away goals in the league, with Wayne Rooney’s 94 coming closest to challenging the current England captain. 

Kane now boasts an impressive tally of 14 North London derby goals in 18 appearances during his time at Spurs – yet another record he claims.

It was a well-taken penalty from the Spurs captain, who sent his effort down the throat of the goal as Ramsdale dived to his right.

The goal came at a crucial time for Tottenham who were 1-0 down in the match following Thomas Partey’s opener.

The Ghanaian midfielder received the ball on the outside of the box and let a first-time effort fly, which nestled into the top corner of Hugo Lloris’ goal.

Just ten minutes later, Spurs were level thanks to Kane’s effort.

Kane currently has 190 goals in the Premier League and is just 70 behind the impressive record held by Alan Shearer.
