HARRY KANE fired a warning to Arsenal as he broke an incredible 60-year-old goal record to create Bundesliga history.

Kane struck his 31st goal of the season for Bayern Munich to inspire a 5-2 win against Darmstadt on Saturday.

And in doing so, he set a new record for the most strikes in a debut Bundesliga campaign, beating Uwe Seeler’s 30 goals for Hamburg in the 1963-64 season.

Bayern went into Saturday’s game clear favourites against the top-flight’s worst side.

But it was Darmstadt who took the lead in the 28th minute through Tim Skarke, further damaging Bayern’s hopes of closing the gap to title favourites Bayer Leverkusen.

But Thomas Tuchel’s men fired back through Jamal Musiala eight minutes later, before Kane put Bayern ahead on the stroke of half-time.

Musiala bagged a second in the 64th minute to make it 3-1, with Serge Gnabry and Mathys Tel putting the finishing touches on a vital win before Oscar Vilhelmsson pulled one back for Darmstadt at the death.

The result means Bayern are seven points behind Leverkusen, who can restore a 10-point gap with victory at Freiburg on Sunday.

But the game ended on a sour note for Kane, who was forced off late on with an injury.

The striker collided with the post as he tried to bag another goal.

And he could now be a doubt for England’s upcoming friendlies against Brazil and Belgium.

Kane will certainly be hoping to bounce back immediately, having already scored the most league goals in a single season in his entire career.

He is now just four away from matching the 41 Tottenham goals scored in all competitions in the 2017-18 campaign.

And Kane could set a new personal best by the time Bayern face Arsenal in the Champions League. The hitman will return to his old North London rivals looking to seal a spot in the semis.

But with the Gunners in top form as they mount a title challenge in the Premier League, Mikel Arteta’s men will be hoping to pile on more misery and continue Kane’s trophy-less career streak – Sun.
