Harry Kane became the highest scorer in the history of north London derbies as Tottenham beat Arsenal 2-0 to return to the top of the Premier League.
Kane fired the second goal which took his all-time tally in the fixture to 11, moving him clear of both Emmanuel Adebayor and double-winner Bobby Smith on 10.
Son Heung-min had fired Spurs in front in the 13th minute, enthralling 2,000 returning fans with a brilliant curling strike from 25 yards.
Kane added his record-breaking effort on the stroke of half-time when he knocked the ball past Bernd Leno from close range.
It continued Arsenal’s worst start to a campaign since the 1981-82 season as they slipped to a fourth defeat in six games.
Liverpool bounced back from the frustration of their draw at Brighton with an emphatic 4-0 win over Wolves at Anfield.
