How do you become a Tottenham hero?
By scoring an absolute wonder-goal against your arch-rivals in one of the biggest Premier League matches in your club’s career.
That’s what Harry Kane has just done to put his side 2-1 up against Arsenal in a crucial title clash.
The home side were trailing 1-0 at half-time after Aaron Ramsey’s delightful flick had put the Gunners ahead.
But the turning point was in the 55th minute. Arsenal’s defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin got himself sent-off for a stupid tackle, which resulted in his second yellow card.
It didn’t take long for Spurs to pile the pressure on the ten men.
First, Kane had an effort that David Ospina just managed to prevent crossing the line.
But Toby Alderweireld equalised just five minutes after the sending off when the ball fell to him in the box following a corner.
Then, it was time for Kane’s moment of magic.
The striker cut in from the cut and unleashed an incredible curling effort which struck the post and went in to send White Hart Lane into delirium.
Watch the stunning strike here:
It was the 22-year-old’s 17th league goal of the season. But there’s very little doubt this this strike was probably his best, and undoubtedly, his most important.
Three points for Mauricio Pochettino’s side would see them go top of the Premier League on goal difference, ahead of Leicester having played a match more.
The Foxes face a tough trip to Watford later this evening.
