Remember me? Harry Kane continues his scoring streak against Arsenal

0

Harry Kane scored his 15th goal in 20 games against Arsenal as Bayern Munich earned a 2-2 draw in the Champions League at the Emirates Stadium.

The former Tottenham striker had a productive record in north London derbies and a change of scenery in the summer made no difference.

Here the PA news agency looks at his record against his long-standing rivals.

Kane, who was released by Arsenal as an eight-year-old and dismissed as “a bit chubby” by then academy boss Liam Brady, wasted little time in senior football pointing out the error of their ways.

He scored both Spurs goals in his first derby, a 2-1 win in February 2015, and five in his first four Premier League games against the Gunners.

He was finally kept at bay in Arsenal's 2-0 win in November 2017 and in two League Cup games, but scored in nine of his first ten league derbies.

With 14 goals in 17 games, the Gunners were his third favorite Premier League opponents – he scored 18 against Leicester and 15 against Everton, in 16 appearances each. Only he, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Sergio Aguero and Wayne Rooney have scored more than 14 goals against a single opponent in the competition, with Shearer's 20 against Leeds a record.

Of those 17 games, Spurs won six, lost six and drew five, but won five, drew five and lost only two when Kane scored. The two League Cup matches each resulted in a win.

The goal for Bayern means he has scored at least one goal against Arsenal in each of the last ten seasons.

Kane gave Bayern the lead with a penalty in the 32nd minute on Tuesday, a frequent source of goals for him against Arsenal.

William Saliba's foul on Leroy Sane gave Kane the chance and he calmly sent David Raya the wrong way.

Of the 15 goals he has now scored against the Gunners, eight have been penalties – five in six between 2016 and 2019 and each of his last three dates back to May 2022.

The England captain has a 100 percent career penalty shootout record against Arsenal.
