After his desired move to Manchester City didn’t happen, Kane slowly started to take on Tue and had not yet found a net in the Premier League in five matches.
And today, he is the top scorer in the North London derby fixture, who did not contribute much to the Spurs attack. Kane fell deeply into what we often see him doing for club and country, but he never linked the play and didn’t notice anything.
In fact, he has taken a total of 11 times in 90 minutes – more than the sum of his successful passes.
As a result, Kane finished the game with 46% passing accuracy, four shots, zero chances and zero dribbles.
Harry Kane lost possession more than once (11), completing passes (5) against Arsenal.

A big chance for them in the second half saw them kill the ball with the first touch of the dead, but the ball rolled wide with the finish you wouldn’t normally expect from such a deadly striker.
And he made a mistake on the third goal scored by England team-mate Bukayo Saka in the first half.
Kane gave the ball cheaply in the middle of the park, and when he ran back to try and fix it, his tackle in the box caused Saka to fall backwards – he finished with his right foot across Hugo Loris.
The 28-year-old has been a top scorer and assistant in the Premier League in the past but you never really know what to judge by his low outing.
Gary Neville, meanwhile, claimed that “after something fuzzy, something was wrong with Kane.”
“Harry Kane had to score two or three goals and maybe have a penalty,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“He’s okay, Harry Kane.
“There is something that is not right with him at the moment. He doesn’t look happy.
