Kane makes history with controversial derby goal

Harry Kane makes North London Derby history with controversial equalizer vs Arsenal

March 2, 2019 By Ali M.
The Englishman converted from the spot to earn a point against the Gunners, but that goal should not have stood.

The latest round in the Premier League began with an explosive game, as Tottenham hosted Arsenal in the weekend's early kick-off. This Wembley showdown did not disappoint, with a lot of drama unfolded en route to a 1-1 draw.

Aaron Ramsey broke the deadlock in the first half, rounding off Hugo Lloris to give the away side a lead. Things remained that way until the break, but Spurs eventually found the equalizer in the second half.

Harry Kane converted from the spot to even things out courtesy of a penalty before all mayhem broke loose towards the end. Another spot-kick was awarded with only a few minutes remaining on the clock, but Lloris saved Aubameyang's poor effort. A while later, Lucas Torreira was sent off for a horrendous tackle on Danny Rose.

However, it was Kane's strike that will forever remain in history. The reason for this is that the Englishman broke the North London Derby goalscoring record with his 74th-minute strike.

The Tottenham superstar overtook Emmanuel Adebayor as the all-time top scorer in North London Derby history with that goal, his ninth in this fixture. However, many were unhappy with the spot kick and rightly so.

While the 25-year-old was fouled in the box courtesy of a push in the back from Mustafi, the Englishman was offside for the set-piece. Unfortunately, this went unnoticed and the linesman thus failed to flag him.

Fans took to Twitter to vent their outrage, as the importance of VAR in the Premier League was once again highlighted. Check out the best tweets below.
