Kane strikes again as Spurs claim derby spoils

Harry Kane’s seventh goal in seven north London derbies gave Tottenham Hotspur a 1-0 victory over Arsenal in front of a record Premier League crowd of 83,222 at Wembley Stadium.

After missing a good chance in the first half, Kane put the home side ahead when he rose highest to head Ben Davies’s 49th-minute cross back across goal and into the bottom corner.

Spurs had plenty of chances to add to their lead but Kane put a free header wide and had a fierce shot saved by Petr Cech while the Arsenal goalkeeper also denied Christian Eriksen, Kieran Trippier and Erik Lamela.

For Arsenal, Jack Wilshere’s curling effort was saved by Hugo Lloris while substitute Alexandre Lacazette put a late chance just wide.

Tottenham Hotspur briefly moved into third place above Liverpool, who quickly reclaimed third on Sunday with a 2-0 win over struggling Southampton, while Arsenal remain sixth, six points off the top four.
