Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Arsenal: Arsenal's player ratings

Share

Tottenham beat Arsenal 1-0 at Wembley on Saturday to move back into the top four of the Premier League, while also extending their lead over Arsene Wenger's team to seven points in the race for Champions League qualification.

"The second half we should have lost the game in the early part of it by a few times goal".

Harry Kane loves a goal against Arsenal and he added to his already impressive tally against The Gunners with his sublime headed victor.

"After the last training session, I hope that he is still doing well and we can put him in contention".

The England global has won back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots and is on track to better his tallies of previous campaigns.

Wenger, if he is to make changes, will change the team's formation as he has done so in big away games.

Kane has now scored in four consecutive home league games against the Gunners and has 23 goals in the top flight in another hugely impressive season.

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.

The upcoming European trips are a sign of the divergent direction these clubs are heading in.

After taking seven points from a possible nine from Liverpool, Arsenal and United, Spurs face a tough trip to Turin as they take on Juventus in the Champions League.

"Henry is the best goalscorer ever in Arsenal's history, so it doesn't mean he will score as many goals". The priority has to be to be in the Champions League through the Premier League.

Arsenal came into the match in high spirits having demolished Everton 5-1 in their previous tie played at the Emirates.

An equalizer rarely looked likely.

Spurs continued to dominate, but Arsenal finally called Hugo Lloris into action for the first time with just over 20 minutes remaining when the Tottenham keeper was at full stretch to deny Wilshere's wicked curling effort from the edge of the box.

Dele Alli nearly doubled the lead 15 minutes before time after being released by Eriksen to go one-on-one with the on-rushing Cech but he could not find the target.
