HARRY KANE just loves playing against Arsenal.

The 28-year-old has now scored more Premier League goals against Arsenal than any other player in the competition’s history.

Kane has netted an incredible 13 goals in just 15 Prem games against his arch-rivals.

Goal-machine Kane started the night on 11 league strikes against the Gunners, level with Jamie Vardy.

But his penalty on 22 minutes saw him leapfrog the Leicester forward’s number of strikes in games against Arsenal.

In doing so he drew level with Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney on 12 Prem strikes versus the Gunners.

But England’s first and joint-second top scorers in history weren’t level for long.

It was just 15 minutes in fact.

Kane doubled Spurs’ lead and his tally for the night with a close-range range header 37 minutes into the game – making him the highest scorer against Arsenal in Prem history.


And at 29-years-old you wouldn’t bet against him adding hatful more to that tally before he decides to hang up his boots.

Kane’s partner in crime Son Heung-Min got in on the act after half-time to help Spurs to a 3-0 win over 10-man Arsenal at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The result keeps Antonio Conte’s side alive in the race for the top four, and puts them just one point off bitter rivals Arsenal.

Conte and Co now need the Gunners to drop points in one of their final two games against Newcastle and Everton, while winning both of their remaining fixtures against Burnley and Norwich respectively.
