Kane scores as Spurs take EPL derby spoils

Mousa Dembele to be offered lucrative Chinese Super League switch?

Mousa Dembele to be offered lucrative Chinese Super League switch?

The Tottenham striker rates his late headed victor against Arsenal from February 2015 as the finest goal of his career.

Kane, 24, has continued to star this season, scoring 22 Premier League goals to take his tally to 100 overall in the competition. Kane appeared to have pushed Laurent Koscielny while leaping forward to make contact with the ball.

On the other hand, the hosts will depend on the harmony between their attacking line players, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min, Dele Alli and Harry Kane who tops the Premier League goal scorer list with 22 goals.

The England worldwide has won back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots and is on track to better his tallies of previous campaigns. "In the first half, the game should have been finished for me". But it should have been more, and Spurs will be the first to tell you that.

"At the top level you have to be mentally strong enough to take the chances". I'm so happy. An awesome effort.

But forget that for now and just focus on the 90 minutes he put in for a Spurs side that has now beaten Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund at a ground where they were supposedly "cursed" earlier in the season.

"Harry Kane is not old fashioned, he is the present and the future". We are so proud that he is in our side'.


Where Kane and his team-mates asserted themselves and made things happen, those in red shirts shrank.

But it was shattered yesterday - the pair were anonymous.

Currently, Spurs are fifth in the EPL points table with 49 points whereas Arsenal are sixth with 45 points.

The result leaves them six points adrift in the race for the final Champions League qualifying place.

"In the first half we missed three or four opportunities on the counter attack which is hard to swallow, always the final ball". I think we had the capacity to push them and create many, many chances, but it was an wonderful game and I'm very pleased.

Putting together back-to-back league wins is proving to be a problem for Spurs at the moment, last doing so at the very start of January, though Pochettino's charges have a favourable run of fixtures to come once they navigate this tricky test against Arsenal.

"Kane made the difference, that is what he is about", Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said. "I thought it (might be a foul) during the goal, but I watched it again and it was a regular goal and we can only look at ourselves on the goal".
