Harry Kane has become a master from 12 yards throughout his career and was once again on point from the spot on Sunday.
Tottenham would take on Burnley in a tie the Lilywhites really needed to win.
Antonio Conte’s side had beaten Arsenal in the league just a few days prior and, as a result, knew they would move up to 4th with a win over Burnley whilst, most importantly, putting pressure on Arsenal who are not in action until Monday evening vs Newcastle United.
And, at the time of writing, Tottenham are leading Burnley by one goal to nil. Spurs have dominated the game but struggled to break the Clarets down.
That was until deep in the first 45 when Tottenham were awarded a fairly soft penalty. Harry Kane would go on to take and convert the penalty for the north Londoners:

Who was the last goalkeeper to save a Harry Kane penalty?
After his goal vs Burnley, it was revealed that, including shootouts, Kane has converted each of his last 23 penalty attempts in all competitions for Spurs, with then Liverpool man Loris Karius the last keeper to save a Kane spot-kick in Spurs colours.

Karius is not the last goalkeeper to save a Kane penalty, however, with Kosovo’s Arijanet Muric doing so in a European Qualifier in 2019 and Kasper Schmeichel of Denmark doing so at Euro 2020.
In total, Kane has scored 52 and missed eight penalties during his senior career.
