However, after Kane beat the offside trap and was brought down by Kepa Arrizabalaga in the box, the England international stepped up and slotted home his penalty, as seen in the video below.

Nevertheless, VAR was required to reach the decision to award a spot-kick, as initially the linesman had flagged Kane for being offside.

Following an intervention from the officials watching on and a discussion with referee Michael Oliver, the penalty was given and Kane made no mistake.

As seen in the tweet below, the 25-year-old also made a bit of club history with his latest effort, becoming the first player for Spurs to score 20 goals or more in all competitions in five consecutive seasons.

That statistic proves just how decisive and fundamental he is for Tottenham…
