Harry Kane double gives Tottenham North London derby honours over Arsenal

Posted by admin | 9 years ago | 2,974 times



Spurs beat Arsenal 2-1 after coming from behind, with Harry Kane’s double including a dramatic late winner.

Spurs dominated much of the game in terms of territory and possession in the first half, but Ozil made the breakthrough when Danny Welbeck’s good work on the right set up Olivier Giroud to slice a shot into Ozil’s pass. Ozil impressively side-footed a volley past Hugo Lloris.

Spurs kept up the pressure, with Christian Eriksen and Ryan Mason bringing smart stops from David Ospina, but Arsenal kept Spurs at bay.

In the second half, Arsenal started brighter but Spurs gradually reasserted their control of the game. Kane’s equaliser came when he stabbed in unmarked at the back post after Ospina flapped at a corner.

His winner came with just minutes remaining, heading in at the back post as Arsenal failed to keep their defensive discipline.
