Derby goal means so much to Tottenham's Kane

Derby goal means so much to Tottenham's Kane

"The pressure is on Chelsea".

Arsenal are in sixth place in the Premier League, a staggering 17 points behind Tottenham at this late stage of the season as we enter May.

Dele Alli and Harry Kane scored the goals which left Arsenal with just one win from their last six away matches in the Premier League.

Hugo Lloris is the goalkeeper with most clean sheets in the Premier League this season with 15 games without conceding a goal.

Spurs remain within four points of league leaders Chelsea, and they can narrow the gap to just one point when they visit West Ham on Friday night, while Antonio Conte's pacesetters have to wait until Monday evening for their fixture at home against Middlesbrough. "It was a great performance throughout the team, from Hugo [Lloris] in goal to Harry [Kane]".

And we still have another four games to go.

"We are already on 77 points, which is seven more than we finished with last season". It is so important now to try and win trophies, that is our aim. At half-time I felt we were in the game and in the second half we wanted to improve, we wanted to play to win the game.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger dismissed the significance of Spurs finishing above his side in the table.

The rise comes as markets prepare for this week's Bank of England (BOE) monetary policy meeting. Gross domestic product increased 0.3% in the first quarter, its worst performance in a year.

"I think it is good but there are bigger things to look at", he told Sky Sports.

"Mathematically, it has to happen once and we are not happy with it, but we as well have to accept that we can not compare ourselves to Spurs, it's compared to where we want to be and what we did".

Kane for his part was ecstatic at the result.

"It's an added bonus that in the last [derby] at the Lane we've managed to finish above Arsenal as well".

"We played fast, we pressed them, we made it hard for them and we created chances".

Our target is to play for titles, so we are disappointed with our season because we aren't playing for a (league) title.

"Obviously we are very disappointed because it's a north London derby, it means a lot to the fans and it meant a lot to the club, to us".
