Kane continued his fine form since signing for the German champions as he scored inside seven minutes.

The England captain nodded home from close range after being picked out from a corner.

His goal came as a result of a mistake from Xhaka, though, who had been marking Kane at the back post before losing his man.

The Swiss midfielder was caught ball-watching as the cross was flicked on, leaving Kane free behind him with a simple task.

Fortunately for Xhaka, Alex Grimaldo levelled the score shortly after with a superb free-kick into the top corner.

There would be more drama late on, however, with Leon Goretzka restoring the home side’s advantage with just four minutes remaining.

That goal looked to have won it, only for a VAR review to penalise Alphonse Davies for a foul inside the penalty area.

Exequiel Palacios converted the resulting spot-kick to tie the match at 2-2 and maintain both side’s unbeaten league starts.


Like Kane, Xhaka is also a summer arrival at his club, having left Arsenal after seven years in North London.

He has since started all four Bundesliga matches this term for Leverkusen, who are managed by former Liverpool man Xabi Alonso.

As for Kane, he has picked up where he left off in the Premier League following his £104million move.

His goal on Friday follows a brace against Augsburg and a debut goal and assist on the opening weekend away to Werder Bremen.

He will hope to continue that form in the Champions League on Wednesday, with Manchester United the opponents.
