VAR can't come soon enough for Arsenal boss Emery after Spurs draw

VAR can't come soon enough for Arsenal boss Emery after Spurs draw

When Arsenal beat Tottenham 4-2 at the Emirates Stadium back in December, it looked like the Gunners were ready to go on a big run and challenge for the title, but a very inconsistent two-month stretch put them back into the fight for a top-four finish, and every point matters for Unai Emery's men in that fight.

"Of course - anything's possible", Kane said, when asked whether Spurs can feasibly win the Champions League this season, as they prepare to take a 3-0 aggregate lead to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

Danny Rose revealed manager Mauricio Pochettino's impassioned half-time team talk in Saturday's north London derby against Arsenal made him like he was "going into war".

"We haven't done that in recent years, we haven't done that this week and that will be the difference".

Kane's goal was his ninth in nine games against Arsenal in the Premier League.

Kane hopes it will not take that long, but also accepts his side have some catching up to do. "And I think it's positive for football in England", he added.

"We've got to a stage in the last four or five years where we've maybe done more than we expected as a club, but it means that we have to do even more to reach that next step".


However, his vital save from Aubameyang drew praise from the Spurs chief, who insisted the blame for that loss at Chelsea should be shared throughout the team.

"We will have to be mature, away from home", he said.

"I am happy with the performance, it was a tough game and hard to play Arsenal but I am happy after two defeats to take a positive result to build confidence for Tuesday, to go to Borussia Dortmund and go through to the next stage of the Champions League". We haven't done that in recent years, we haven't done that this week, and that's going to be the difference.

"Feel sorry but at the same time I feel proud of what the team did and I'm a team player since day one".

"We are not used to losing two games in a row".

"Sissoko's shot, I didn't see the ball, I just reacted, I think the best saves are always those when you don't quite know what happens!"

"It's not impossible, it's unlikely at the moment but we'll see what happens".
