“Should have been at least 4-0,” “Arsenal fan tv and chill” Tottenham rejoice North London derby win

Published

on

“Harry Kane made the difference.” How many times have you heard it? Well, same was the case last night when Tottenham welcomed Arsenal to Wembley, as Harry Kane’s towering header separated both the teams in the North London derby.

Kane, who scored his 100th Premier League goal in that exquisite 2-2 draw against Liverpool – scored his 101st with an amazing header, rising higher than Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi. A goal against Arsenal means this former Arsenal youth academy youngster has now scored 7 goals in 7 NLD games against the Gunners. By the end of the final whistle, the scoreline read 1-0, but it could have been a different story altogether had Spurs had taken their chances.

Kane had the opportunity of opening the scoring early in the game when all he had to do was to guide his header past Petr Cech from close range. The chance, however, went begging as he fired it wide. The striker eventually made up for his mistake as he rose the highest to connect with a perfect delivery from Ben Davies to give his side a well-deserved lead. The 24-year-old could have easily completed his hat-trick had he had been a bit more clinical.

Receiving another aerial opportunity in the area, Kane had acres of space to guide it past Cech but his attempt skipped past the left post. Moments later, the striker fired a venom from around 18 yards out but hit it straight at Cech. Besides Kane, the likes of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Erik Lamela had their chances as well. The Dane received a free-kick right outside the area, but a fine save from Cech saw his effort get parried away.

Alli, on the other hand, was put through on goal but his attempt sailed past the right-hand side of the post. Lamela, who came on as a second-half substitute, had a similar chance but couldn’t guide his attempt on target. Meanwhile, at the other end, Jack Wilshere tested Lloris with a fine curling effort but the Frenchman kept his composure to parry it out. Arsenal’s second-half substitute Alexandre Lacazette came at the receiving end of a couple of golden opportunities but the former Lyon man left Arsene Wenger utterly red-faced, as he couldn’t find the target.

So with the win, Tottenham now sit 4th on the log with 52 points in 27 games.

Meanwhile, this is how the fans reacted on Twitter:
