Does Arsenal's Lacazette deserve some credit for his short cameo v Spurs?

Does Arsenal's Lacazette deserve some credit for his short cameo v Spurs?

Harry Kane's 49th-minute header proved the victor as Spurs moved into third place, above Chelsea and seven points clear of their neighbours.

It took until the 27th minute for the game's first real chance to be created, but Kane could not keep his header down.

"Once they scored you could see we were wobbling and they could have scored more".

Arsenal are now a massive 10/1 to finish in the top-four and their quest to return to the top-ranks of the Premier League look over for another season.

Many have believed Vertonghen to be one of the best defenders in the league, with a number of them feeling he goes under the radar.


"He's an authentic legend of this club", City manager Pep Guardiola said of the striker who clinched City's Premier League title in 2012 with nearly the last kick of the season. Arsenal's only hope left to qualify for the Champions League will be through winning the Europa League. We had tough fixtures: United, Liverpool and Arsenal all in a row and seven points from those games is fantastic. "If you mention most players I'd say yeah, they're going to want to go and win things and their agent is probably going to move them on, but I don't think Harry is one of those players". Kane appeared to have pushed Laurent Koscielny while leaping forward to make contact with the ball. We contained them to very little.

That soon changed within just four minutes of the second half, however, as Kane made no mistake with his second headed effort on goal when a sensational cross from Ben Davies saw the Premier League's leading goalscorer out jump his rivals to thunder the ball into the bottom corner. 83,222 fans of North London football piled into Wembley to watch the Spurs victory, setting a new attendance record for a Premier League football match. Here are five things we learned from the game.

"In the first half we missed three or four opportunities on the counter attack which is hard to swallow, always the final ball".

The Gunners threw caution to the wind in the final few minutes of the game as Alexandre Lacazette had two glaring chances to steal a point at the death but his wayward finishing let Tottenham off the hook.
