Harry Kane Turned Hurri-Kane to Blow Away Arsenal
Will the Spurs' wonder never cease?
Hard charging Tottenham looked to its surprise striker to seal to an intense 2-1 comeback and leapfrog Arsenal for the Premiership table's fifth spot.
This heated north London Derby more often than not produces drama and heroes. Its the kind of match where wannabes are separated from true legends. Thierry Henry and Gareth Bale used to thrive onsuch occasions, but now there’s a new sheriff in town.
Harry Kane may not be the most recognizable name on the team sheets, but progress is being made each week. We saw a glimpse of him when Tottenham prevailed in yet another London derby against Chelsea:
And for now, at least, he's the toast of all districts in the capital city.
As Tottenham did against Chelsea, it conceded early through a high-stepper from Arsenal ace Mesut Özil:
Weapons fire the best when they're fully charged, and Kane is locked and loaded these days. He charged in the first half and fired in the second:
Fortune favors the bold.
Kane's second was sheer class:
It was like Tom Watson without the sand wedge. Or Tom Watson, for that matter.
And if it wasn't already, it's now official. Harry Kane is surely and purely magical.
