Given his derby day heroics in the past, this will go down as a nondescript showing from Harry Kane.

For most of the game, the England striker engaged in a battle with the Arsenal centre backs. It was a successful tactic from the Gunners to take him out the game.

His concentration did not wander, though. When the moment came for him to convert from the spot, he did just that.

The penalty may have been a contentious one, but he put it away nonetheless. When Spurs need Kane, he consistently steps up.
