Tottenham’s lethal Harry Kane kills off Arsenal again

Harry Kane tormented Arsenal again as the Tottenham Hotspur striker’s clinical finish sealed a 1-0 win in the north London derby at Wembley on Saturday.

Kane’s header early in the second half gave Tottenham the victory their enterprising display deserved as Mauricio Pochettino’s side climbed to third in the Premier League.



It was the Tottenham striker’s seventh goal in seven league games against the club who rejected him as a youngster.

Kane’s latest heroics also made it sweet revenge for Tottenham after they were beaten at Arsenal earlier this season.

In the first North London derby at Wembley for 25 years, Tottenham extended their recent mastery over Arsenal, who have won only once in the last eight league meetings with their hated neighbours.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last nine league matches and remain in a good position to qualify for the Uefa Champions League via a top four finish.

In stark contrast, this was another dispiriting day for Arsenal in a season already marred by too many painful moments.

Arsenal’s first defeat in 10 visits to Wembley is a huge blow to their hopes of returning to the Champions League.

The Gunners, winless in 16 Premier away league games against the top five, fell seven points behind Tottenham and are six adrift of the top four.

From the start, it was clear Tottenham would be the aggressors in the latest meeting between these eternal rivals in front of a Premier League record crowd of 83,222.

Kane’s clever flick sent Dele Alli racing clear and when he whipped over a low cross, Shkodran Mustafi poked an attempted clearance towards his own goal, forcing Petr Cech to plunge to his right to spare his team-mate’s blushes.

That incisive raid was part of a sustained spell of early pressure from Tottenham.

Adopting an unusually cautious approach, Arsenal were rendered impotent for long periods, leaving club record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang chasing lost causes.
