  • Harry Kane was on target with a goal against familiar foes, Arsenal, on Tuesday night

  • After the game, Kane was taunted with brutal chants about his faint league title hopes

Harry Kane was brutally reminded about his shortcomings in the silverware department by savage Arsenal fans on Tuesday, April 9.

Kane was back in London for the Champions League quarter-final first leg where Bayern faced his familiar foes Arsenal.

The two teams played out a thrilling 2-2 draw, with Kane registering another goal against the North Londoners.

Arsenal initially took the lead through Bukayo Saka, before the Gunners were haunted by two familiar faces in Serge Gnabry and Kane, who turned the game on its head.

Thomas Tuchel’s side’s frailties at the back showed once again as Arsenal equalized in the 76th minute through Leandro Trossard to set up a tense second leg in Germany.

Harry Kane taunted with wild chants

For Kane, his goal on Tuesday came with another landmark as he became the highest-scoring opposition player at the Emirates with six goals.

The 30-year-old certainly made no new friends on his return to England, as some cheeky Gunners fans made their feelings clear during post-match interviews.

As Kane was talking to Martin Keown, fans could be heard chanting expletive anti-Tottenham songs. The chants then turned to Kane’s troubles in the Bundesliga as the rowdy fans behind the camera shouted, “Granit Xhaka, he’s top of the league.”

The noise was surely hard to ignore, and it prompted Kane to issue a cheeky comment.

"I think they have a soft respect for me,” the striker said, per talkSPORT.

This was a direct dig at Kane, whose wait for a maiden league title is set to continue as Bayer Leverkusen are 16 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

Xabi Alonso’s side is now one win away from winning their first title in the club’s history.

Kane escapes red card

Sports Brief also reported on a curious incident in which Kane escaped a red card during the game against Arsenal.

Kane appeared to elbow Gabriel, but Swedish referee Glenn Nyberg only brandished a yellow card, to the discontent of Arsenal fans.
