Spurs go up to third, four points behind second-place Man Utd.

And yet, Arsenal still could have stolen a point. The Gunners are actually closer on points to the foot of the table than the top.

Arsenal travel to Wembley, the temporary home of bitter cross-city rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, in what could be one of the biggest games of the season for both sides.

Should Arsenal eventually fail to make the top four, they could still make it into Europe's premier competition if they can follow in the footsteps on Manchester United and win the Europa League. "I must say that personally, it's more important mathematically for us to come back as quickly as possible, rather than it being emotionally-charged", Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger told press ahead of the game.

Did nothing fancy and stuck to his task, adding numbers to the backline and frustrating Spurs in and around the box for most of the game. The first 25-30 minutes of the second half we played unbelievable football and created a lot of chances.

Kane rose above the Arsenal defence to power home a header after 49 minutes, connecting perfectly with Ben Davies' cross and leaving Petr Cech with no chance.

With both back-lines forcing flawless pressure, the only two chances for Spurs came from a Shkodran Mustafi clearance that forced a Peter Cech save and a pinpoint cross from Christian Eriksen that connected with a Kane header yet went above the crossbar.

Arsene Wenger's expensively-assembled attacking line failed to muster much of note, managing just one shot on target throughout the entire game, with chances at a premium throughout.

However, the German did play a pivotal role in Arsenal staying in the game for as long as they did and it was proven in a tactical analysis by YouTube's Nouman.

Tottenham are on their way to finish another season above Arsenal.

The Spurs striker proved the match-winner with the only goal of the match, giving his side a victory in the latest edition of the north London derby. It might be too early to talk about that right now, given Tottenham's lack of silverware to back it up.

"That's what happened, we should have been more clinical, we know that, but we played very well".
