Tottenham vs Arsenal LIVE: Premier League result, final score and reaction as Harry Kane scores twice, Son Heung-min nets and Rob Holding sent off


Conte: ‘We are doing a good job’ in UCL race

Harry Kane struck twice as Tottenham beat 10-man Arsenal 3-0 after Rob Holding’s red card to bolster their hopes of a top-four finish.

Antonio Conte’s side have now closed the gap on the Gunners in the Premier League to just one point with two games remaining.

Cedric Soares’ clumsy challenge on Son Heung-min handed Spurs an early gift in the form of a penalty, Kane calmly sending it into the bottom right corner.

And Holding’s elbow to Son earned him a second yellow and an early bath, with Rodrigo Bentancur’s shot into the corner moments later allowing Kane to crouch and head in a second.

Kane turned provider after the restart, dragging Gabriel Magalhaes inside the box with Son backstabbing the loose ball to fire in one from Mohamed Salah in the golden boot race.

Harry Kane reaction

A delighted Harry Kane gave his post-match reaction and said Tottenham’s aim was to keep the pressure on Arsenal and hope to challenge the top four. He said:

“I’m proud of the boys. If they won they would have secured the Champions League, so there was pressure on us in front of our home fans, but we played well. We started on the front foot, created the chances and controlled in the second half.

“Every time you win a derby it’s always nice. Two more games to go. We have to focus on them now, but it was a special night here.

“I think so [it being the best atmosphere at that stadium]. You could feel the anticipation building and we knew we had to deliver.

“We still have two games to play and we put the pressure on them. We have to focus on ourselves. We play early on Sunday so we need to get a result and see what happens.

“We can only control our games. We did our job tonight. We will not get ahead of ourselves. Tonight was special but our ultimate goal is to get fourth place and we still have work to do.

Tottenham stay in top four as 10-man Arsenal crumble in North London derby

It’s still Arsenal by the nose, fair, but that’s after they’ve lost their minds. Tottenham Hotspur may have benefited from some decisions, but they also profited impressively from Arsenal’s chaotic response to it all.

Antonio Conte’s team were therefore worthy of the winners of the evening and took full advantage of this emphatic 3-0 victory. The Italian pushed his side to another big win in another big game. He has been the main marker of his time so far. Whether Spurs are actually a better team and a better bet for the top four remains to be seen.

It’s entirely possible that it just reveals the difference between the sides on nights like this. Spurs have one of the best managers in world football, as well as shrewd and experienced players in their prime – especially star scorers Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min – while Mikel Arteta still has such an inexperienced squad.
