"In the second half, at the end they were exhausted, they weren't pressing as much and we were creating a bit more space so we had chances".

Wenger also admitted his side's seventh away defeat in the Premier League this season was unacceptable, yet he refused to accept his side's best hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League will be by winning the Europa League.

"No, I don't think they lacked the hunger to defend", Wenger said.

BetVictor's Head of ante post Football Michael Triffitt said: "The top-four is a popular market and Arsenal have been well backed but games starting to run out now". Man United decided that once they were in the semi-final, and we are far from a semi-final.

"This was a game we couldn't afford to lose".

The result leaves Arsenal in sixth - seven points behind their rivals - with the Europa League now looking like their surest route back to the Champions League next season.

"In the first half we missed three or four opportunities on the counter attack which is hard to swallow, always the final ball".


Tottenham began the day four points ahead of Arsenal on the English Premiership League table as both teams aim to boost their chances of finishing inside the top four in search of Champions League football.

He added: "We've done very well, we're building a great team with the manager and the new stadium is coming up".

Cech was straight back into the action, saving well from substitute Erik Lamela, who had replaced Son Heung-Min, and the keeper excelled again as he beat away a Kieran Trippier volley to keep the Gunners in the game.

In front of a record Premier League attendance, Kane made amends for his earlier miss within four minutes, towering above Laurent Koscielny from Davies' left-wing cross to head superbly into the bottom left corner past Cech. At the end, we should have come back to 1-1. His shot went just wide and Tottenham held on for the 1-0 victory. We must win all the games, and Manchester City fail every game.

Alli missed a sitter not long later, which saw Arsenal pile some pressure on the hosts late in the game.

On Saturday morning, Arsenal's most famous fan Piers Morgan suggested that Pierre Emerick Aubameyang would enjoy the derby more than Kane.
