Spurs Beat Arsenal 1-0

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

"Aside from the bragging rights, three points would be hugely significant". Spurs are now seven points ahead of the Gunners and St. Totteringham's Day is appearing unlikely for a second straight season as Arsenal lost yet another North London derby. Praising the man of the moment for Pochetinho's Spurs, the Arsenal manager called Harry Kane a super striker and one of the best in the world.

"The [seven-point] gap is not massive but it will be tough".

Arsene Wenger named Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil in attack but the Gunners looked a shadow of the attacking force that put five past Everton last week. Many would have let their heads drop as chance after chance went begging, but Kane kept coming, ensuring United were constantly on the back foot.

"In the final part of the game we should have come back to 1-1, which was maybe not enough but better than 1-0 down. 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".

All that was missing was another goal from the hosts at its temporary home in front of a Premier League record crowd of 83,222 - 38 short of the English league record set in 1948.

Arsenal's only shy chance was a wide shot from Hector Bellerin ending the first 45 minutes goalless. Arsenal are a very good team, but this is the sort of game Spurs need to win if they are to establish themselves as Champions League regulars.

"It will be more hard to finish in the top four but we have to fight for it". Arsenal are now six points behind fourth-place Liverpool, who face Southampton on Sunday.

Tottenham have scored in 14 successive top-flight matches since the 2-0 defeat at Arsenal on 18 November.

Harry Kane has now scored seven goals in seven Premier League games against Arsenal.

The Gunners are four points and one place adrift of their neighbours as they sit sixth heading into the north London derby.

But Arsene Wenger was quick to his stance that diving must have to be eliminated from the game.

Arsenal have been inconsistent in recent weeks to lose ground on the Premier League's top four in pursuit of a Champions League spot. They have the division's ninth best away record.

However, Arsenal are unbeaten in their last nine matches at Wembley Stadium, winning them all including two penalty shootouts.

- Petr Cech has now gone nine Premier League games without a clean sheet, his longest ever run in the competition. I'm not a great fan of qualifying for the Europa League through the Champions League.

"Last season he played so well, and then at the end of the season he suffered a problem in his ankle, struggled during preseason but now is feeling good", he added.

Probability of away win: 27%.
