Watch: Beating Arsenal means the world to Harry Kane

New, comments

It goes without saying, but Tottenham-Arsenal is not just any match. Heading into Saturday's derby, Spurs trailed Gunners by two in the table, though you can all but toss out the standings in a rivalry like this one.

With Arsenal backers needing police escort to enter the Lane to minimize incident, Arsene Wegner's side took the early edge with Mesut Özil continuing a two-week stretch that confirmed him being in the best form he's been in for some time. Enter Harry Kane.

Having grown up near the grounds as a life long Spurs fan but with the unique backstory of having suited up for their rivals until age 11, few players have the vantage of a Harry Kane. And Kane took it upon himself to elevate his play, even beyond a campaign that already saw him with 20 goals heading into this one.

Two goals later, including a world class header straight out of legend, Kane and Spurs have surpassed their London rivals. It's hard to even imagine how emotional one would be all things given, so allow Harry Kane to tell you himself:

"He's one of our own, Harry Kane, he's one of our own."
