Harry Kane has picked out his long-range strike against Arsenal at White Hart Lane in 2016 as his best Premier League goal.
Aaron Ramsey gave the visitors the lead in the 39th minute before Francis Coquelin was sent off early into the second half after being shown a second yellow card.
Toby Alderweireld equalised for Spurs from close range in the 62nd minute before Kane struck a couple of minutes later.
“We had just scored the equaliser. The crowd were on their feet. The atmosphere was electric.
“To score that was unbelievable. One of my best goals technically and the moment was really special.”

Kane is now one of only ten players in the history of the Premier League to reach 150 goals. He said that it is a “really proud achievement” but he hopes that he reaches more milestones:
“A really proud achievement,” said Kane. “Obviously 150 goals is a lot down to my teammates. Another milestone reached and hopefully a few more to come.”
“I’ve got mixed emotions towards it really. At times, I feel like it’s a bit unfair. Sometimes I’ve made a mistake or something has led to a goal and one mistake is talked about like it’s four or five. I’ve felt that at times.
“As defenders, you’re always going to make mistakes and the most important thing is how you react to them. I think fans have seen what I can do in glimpses, especially at the beginning of the season. I think I had a very good first six months and it dropped a little bit for a few games. But I feel like I’ve been back to a good place for a couple of months now.
“It’s just the narrative I see that is painted of me. It doesn’t really bother me too much. I just think it’s a bit unfair. It’s football. I just need to worry about myself and keep trying to do better. But I’m my own biggest critic and I know where I can improve and when I can improve.”
