It was a goal to make history and to achieve the seemingly impossible – thrill across both sides of the north London divide. Harry Kane got it early on and, in doing so, he became Tottenham’s all-time record scorer, moving to 267 – one clear of the legendary Jimmy Greaves.
Spurs had been desperate for something to spark their season, a first victory against a member of the so-called big six after so many frustrations, and they got it – deservedly, against a curiously off-colour Manchester City. And how it would be celebrated down the road at Arsenal, whose lead over City at the top of the Premier League has not been damaged by their surprise defeat at Everton on Saturday.
