It was a North London derby and Tottenham came out ontop
Tottenham got a well deserved win over rivals, Arsenal at the White Hart Lane with goals from Bamidele Alli and Hary Kane proving decisive.
The first half of this game ended 0-0 as both sides couldn’t score, though Tottenham was the best team during the opening half.
The second half began and Tottenham continued with the same momentum. They finally got their breakthrough, as familiar face, with Dele Alli the scorer in the 55th minute. Hary Kane (who is the highest goal scorer for Tottenham this season) scored the second goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 58th minute.
After the second goal, Tottenham defended brilliantly to deny Arsenal the opportunity to get back into the game, with the Gunnera putting plenty of bodies forward as they desperately sought for a way back into the game.
Dele Alli and Harry Kane scored to keep Tottenham’s Premier League title challenge on track and consign Arsenal to a North London derby disappointment.
It was the last North London derby for Tottenham at the White Hart Lane and they signed off in fine style on Sunday, beating Arsenal 2-0 to ensure they will finish above their fierce local rivals in the English Premier League for the first time since the year 1995.
Spurs threatened early through a Kane shot and Toby Alderweireld’s near-post header, before Alli nearly broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute, heading wide with the goal gaping after Kane’s deflected strike wrong-footed goalkeeper Petr Cech.
Three minutes later it was Christian Eriksen’s turn to go even closer, the playmaker clipping the bar with a volleyed effort after Victor Wanyama had played Song Heung-min into space down the left.
The South Korea international left Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for dead on the touchline, raced into the area and saw a curling attempt blocked, his Danish team-mate then proving unable to stroke home the loose ball.
Having struggled to impose themselves, Arsenal were restricted to half chances for Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez from range, Jan Vertonghen returning the favour by testing Cech in first-half injury time.
Spurs began the second half strongly, Wanyama calling Cech into action with a fierce curling strike following a rapid counter-attack.
They deservedly broke the deadlock in the 55th minute, Alli’s neat footwork creating a chance for Eriksen, who had his close-range shot from a tight angle saved by Cech. The goalkeeper could only parry the ball back into the danger area, where it was coolly stroked home by the young England midfielder.
Just three minutes later the hosts were gifted a second, Gabriel giving away a penalty with a needless trip on Kane inside the area. The striker made no mistake with the subsequent spot-kick, tucking his effort just inside the post to leave a motionless Cech with no chance, becoming the leading Spurs scorer in Premier League north London derbies.
The novel 3-4-3 formation that had prompted a change in Arsenal’s recent fortunes failed them against their newly imperious rivals, as Wenger’s second-half substitutes, Theo Walcott among them, proved unable to force a route back into a contest that Tottenham comfortably dominated throughout.
