The One Incredible Stat That Reveals Harry Kane Always Rises to the Occasion Against Arsenal

Jamie Spencer

Tottenham Hotspur favourite ​Harry Kane will be hoping to continue his incredible scoring record against Arsenal when the two team meet in this weekend's north London derby at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Kane has faced the Gunners four times in the Premier League so far in his young career and has scored in every single game. He has never not scored against Arsenal in a league context, which is almost like the ultimate personal dream for a home-grown Spurs star.

​​Kane scored from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium earlier this season, and netted once each home and away against Arsenal in 2015/16 - games that ended in 2-2 and 1-1 draws respectively.

In Kane's first season as a regular starter, he played just once against Arsenal but scored a brace in a 2-1 Spurs win at White Hart Lane. That was his very first game against the Gunners and taste of a senior north London derby.

The only time Kane has so far played against Arsenal and not scored came in a League Cup tie in September 2015, won 2-1 by the Gunners at White Hart Lane.
