Harry Kane has explained why he doesn’t rate his goal against Arsenal on Saturday as his best for Tottenham Hotspur.

The England striker put Spurs 2-1 ahead at White Hart Lane after Toby Alderweireld had cancelled out Aaron Ramsey’s opener in the north London derby.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side were denied a crucial win in the title race after Arsenal’s Chile international Alexis Sanchez equalised with 16 minutes remaining.

Kane’s goal was the standout effort of the local clash but the 22-year-old admitted that it would have been even more special if Tottenham had hung on for three points.

“It is up there​,” Kane told Marathon Bet.

​”​Of course, if we won the game and it was the winner, it definitely would have been.

​”​It was a very good goal, one I enjoyed and the atmosphere was amazing. I’d put it in my top three.​”​

Kane has scored 17 goals in 29 Premier League games for the north London side so far this season.

Tottenham will face Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 clash in Germany on Thursday night.
