Arsenal vs Tottenham: Kane chases London derby scorer Thierry Henry’s record

Arsenal vs Tottenham: Kane chases London derby scorer Thierry Henry's record

Harry Kane, who has been in form lately, will be aiming to close in on an Arsenal legend's record when Tottenham travel to the Gunners on Sunday.

Kane extended his amazing record in London derbies with a strike in Spurs' 3-1 win over Chelsea last weekend.

That tally ranks him joint-sixth on the all-time Premier League table for total goals scored in London derbies together with former Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie and trailing Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, who leads the way with 43.

The Spurs ace has the second-best goals per game record on that list, with Henry again top of the pile.

Kane has six goals in his last seven matches for club and country and Arsenal know just how treacherous he can be.

Kane has scored seven goals in eight appearances against Arsenal and will be anxious to net another London derby goal against his side's fiercest rivals.
