Spurs got the better of their neighbours as Kane headed home after half-time to secure a 1-0 Wembley victory which moved the hosts seven points clear of the Gunners in the Premier League table. I think we had the capacity to push them and create many, many chances, but it was an wonderful game and I'm very pleased.

After a sluggish first half, Kane jumped highest to head home his seventh derby goal in seven games and Spurs would have won by a greater margin but for an inspired performance from Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Arsenal's trip to Wembley for Saturday's crucial North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur will feel like a home game due to their outstanding record at the national stadium, according to former Arsenal forward Paul Merson.

The North London Derby is one of the most highly anticipated Premier League fixtures of the season, especially given how much importance this game holds in the race for the top four.

Arsene Wenger has claimed that Arsenal should have put the game against Spurs to bed in the first-half, but I think that is a little over the top. "But we have to fight as long as we have a mathematical chance".

Meanwhile, January may have been heralded as the start of a new era for Arsenal, and last weekend's thrashing of Everton certainly suggests that they are back on track, but supporters do not need reminding of past false dawns.

He has 35 goals in 36 games for club and country, including three hat-tricks, this season and is ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar. "If it's an opportunity we will have to take it as well, but the priority is to be in the Premier League".

We have to keep going.

"I said many times that we did what we wanted to do but not all that we wanted to do", he told BT Sport when questioned on their failure to land the ex-Manchester United player. "You know very well that football is about trust, confidence and belief".

Tottenham official Twitter handle posted a video of Kane delivering a message for the fans, right after the game.
