White Hart Lane hero continues fine run of form to help home side to North London Derby victory.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side superbly comes back from behind to defeat the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger’s traveling Arsenal side took little time to impose themselves on this north London derby with Mesut Ozil taking the away side ahead after just 11 minutes. The German cleverly volleyed home having played an onside by young defender Eric Dier.
Though Arsenal retained their lead for 45 minutes, their overly defensive approach invited Tottenham to make in-roads into their half and the in-form striker Harry Kane fired home after David Ospina’s parried save fell to him just yards away from the goal.
Kane headed in superbly to give Tottenham a deserved lead and once again boosted his reputation as one of the best young strikers in European football.
The win sees Tottenham leapfrog Arsenal in the race for a top four finish whilst securing the bragging rights after a top comeback victory.
Final whistle at White Hart Lane.
Its Spurs 2-1 Arsenal
