Remember me? Harry Kane continues goalscoring spree against Arsenal

Harry Kane scored his 15th goal in 20 appearances against Arsenal as Bayern Munich drew 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium in the Champions League. The former Tottenham striker enjoyed a prolific record in north London derbies and a summer change of scenery made no difference. Here, the PA news agency looks at his record against his long-time rivals. Scourge of the Gunners Kane, released from Arsenal as an eight-year-old written off by then-academy boss Liam Brady as “a bit chubby”, wasted little time in senior football in showing them the error of their ways. He scored both Spurs goals in his first derby, a 2-1 win in February 2015, and five in his first four Premier League games against the Gunners. He was finally kept at bay in Arsenal’s 2-0 win in November 2017, and in a pair of League Cup ties, but scored in nine of his first 10 league derbies. With 14 goals in 17 games, the Gunners were his third-favourite Premier League opponent – he scored 18 against Leicester and 15 versus Everton, in 16 appearances against each. Only he, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Sergio Aguero and Wayne Rooney have scored more than 14 against a single opponent in the competition, with Shearer’s 20 against Leeds a record. Spurs won six, lost six and drew five of those 17 games but won five, drew five and lost only two when Kane scored. The two League Cup meetings brought one win apiece. The goal for Bayern means he has scored at least once against Arsenal in each of the last 10 seasons. On the spot Kane put Bayern ahead in the 32nd minute on Tuesday from the penalty spot, a frequent source of goals for him against Arsenal. William Saliba’s foul on Leroy Sane gave Kane the chance and he calmly sent David Raya the wrong way. Of the 15 goals he has now scored against the Gunners, eight have been penalties – five out of six between 2016 and 2019 and each of his last three going back to May 2022. The England captain has a 100 per cent record from penalties against Arsenal in his career.

Tina Malone: ‘Broken’ Shameless star shares late husband Paul Chase’s final hours before death

Tina Malone has said she is “broken” and “bereft” after the death of her husband Paul Chase aged 42. Malone, known for her roles in Shameless and Brookside, announced her husband’s death on 13 March, writing: “It’s with total heartbreak I write this. My husband Paul Chase Malone passed away this morning. We are totally devastated.” No cause of death has been revealed, but Malone, 61, has now shared details of the final hours of army veteran Chase, who is the father of her daughter, Flame. One month on from his death, Malone, 61, told her social media followers: “Four weeks ago at 4pm today my hubby made scrambled eggs, bacon, beans, sausages for Flame, kissed me and said see you later…. 10 hours later he was dead, I am broken, so bereft.” Malone, who attended Chase’s funeral last week in Liverpool, was supported by her fans The couple, who married in 2010, split in 2019, but rekindled their romance soon after and celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary in August 2023. In the last 10 years, Malone, a former Celebrity Big Brother housemate, has appeared alongside Chase on ITV shows This Morning and Loose Women. Speaking about their brief time away from each other in 2020, Malone, who played Mimi in Channel 4 series Shameless, said that their “love never went away”. She told Closer that the issues in their marriage had been caused by depression and, after splitting, she realised she could save things if they “pulled together” as opposed to “falling apart”. “We’re working on things now,” she told the outlet, adding: “Our problems were compounded by depression but I learned that in tough times you have to pull together and not apart. “We were either arguing, bickering or not talking at all, I’d end up putting Flame to bed and falling asleep next to her. As well as her daughter with Chase, Malone has an older daughter from a previous relationship. In 2019, Malone avoided going to jail after admitting to breaching an injunction that protected the identity of James Bulger killer Jon Venables by sharing a post on social media. Malone shared a post on Facebook in February last year which purportedly included an image and Venables’ new name, the High Court was told. Her barrister, Adam Speker, told the court that, on reflection after giving evidence, the actor accepted that she was in breach of the injunction, and said that she understood that Venables had been given anonymity for his protection. Malone told the court she was not aware that she was doing anything wrong when she shared the post.

Hill of Content bookshop gets the good word as investor buys CBD building

The property was passed in at auction last month on a vendor bid of $5.7 million, and the possible ouster of the Hill of Content prompted an outcry among Melbourne book lovers. Nick Peden, JLL Melbourne’s director of capital markets, said the new buyer was a passive investor who intended to hold the property long-term as a family asset. “They just want it leased and they want it to produce an income,” he said. “There’s every chance that [Hill of Content] will remain. They’ve been a really, really good tenant for a really long time, so there’s no reason why that wouldn’t continue.”

Gaza war: You’re making a mistake – Joe Biden tells Netanyahu

US president, Joe Biden has told Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu that his approach on Gaza was a “mistake.” The President further urged Israel to call for a ceasefire. It happened to be some of Biden’s strongest criticism yet of Netanyahu amid growing tensions over the civilian death toll from Israel’s war on Hamas. “I think what he’s doing is a mistake. I don’t agree with his approach,” Biden told Univision, a US Spanish-language TV network, when asked about Netanyahu’s handling of the war. The US number one citizen reiterated that an Israeli drone attack last week that killed seven aid workers from a US-based charity in Gaza – and sparked a tense phone call with Netanyahu – was “outrageous”. “What I’m calling for is for the Israelis to just call for a ceasefire, allow for the next six, eight weeks, total access to all food and medicine going into the country,” said Biden. The president’s earlier remarks was that the burden lay with Hamas to agree to a truce and hostage release deal. Biden also stepped up pressure on Israel to let more aid into devastated Gaza. “There’s no excuse to not provide for the medical and the food needs of those people. It should be done now,” he added.
