Kane header clinches North London derby for Spurs over Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has claimed that Arsenal should have "finished" Tottenham Hotspur due to the amount of counter-attacks they wasted, despite conceding that Mauricio Pochettino's team could have won by more than the eventual 1-0 scoreline.

Kane has now scored seven goals in his last seven matches against the Gunners, a club who released him as a youngster prior to him joining Spurs. With the Gabon global scoring 100 times in 117 games compared to Kane's 92 goals in 117 games, Morgan wrote: "Can't wait to see the best striker in Europe tomorrow" and tagged Aubameyang, while copying Kane. His ensuing shot had the same trajectory of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket on Tuesday.

The game ended 1-0 for the home side as the Gunners continue to suffer from their inconsistent form.

Arsene Wenger realizing Alexandre Lacazette is no Harry Kane. The Gunners have been exceptional at Wembley over the course of the last five years or so. The result sees Tottenham climb to third in the table, four points off United, two points ahead of Chelsea and one ahead of Liverpool.

"If it is an opportunity we will have to try to take it - but the priority is still the Premier League".

Chances were few and far between in the first half, but Arsenal had the better of the openings without doing much when in risky areas.


The striker then spurned two chances to double the lead when he headed wide after another smart delivery from Eriksen before shooting straight at Cech after being played through by Dele Alli. Instead, Kane celebrated yet another glorious day against his early-boyhood club. In the 57th minute, Cech made a hard save on a free kick from Christian Eriksen.

While their rivals have been on the way forwards, Arsenal have clearly looked like they are very much going backwards from where they were.

The England man poked wide a glorious chance to give Spurs a 2nd goal when clean through with his confidence levels in front of goal low.

However, thanks to Lacazette doing his best Alvaro Morata impression, neither team found another goal.

Tottenham's prospects of finishing in the top four have been boosted by seven points from a tough three-game run starting with victory over Manchester United at Wembley 10 days ago which was followed by Kane's stoppage time penalty to secure a draw at Liverpool last weekend.
