Petr Cech Rues Out-of-Form Lacazette's Missed Chances in Tottenham Defeat

     PROLIFIC Harry Kane has scored 22 goals in 25 appearances this season

But this morning, in this season's second North London Derby, Tottenham would do just enough to hold off Arsenal.

Spurs secured all three points at Wembley in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off courtesy of a second half Harry Kane header, but Arsenal substitute Lacazette spurned two glorious opportunities in the closing stages of the game which could have produced a different outcome for Arsene Wenger's side.

However, The Mirror state that the Spurs hierarchy believe their manager would spurn the chance to join the Santiago Bernabeu outfit in favour of continuing his project in North London.

Toby Alderweireld is available after the Belgian defender returned to the team from a hamstring injury he picked up in November and played 90 minutes against Newport. "He is doing well, training so hard and I think we need to assess him".

We are far from the semi-final and we have to fight to have a chance to come back. "We had tough fixtures: United, Liverpool and Arsenal all in a row and seven points from those games is fantastic", added Kane.

Following the disappointing loss, Arsenal are glued in the sixth place on the EPL standings with 45 points, five behind fifth-placed Chelsea who still have a game to play.

Harry Kane said it was "crazy" Tottenham were unable to score more goals during their dominant win over Arsenal on Saturday.


"He is the present and the future", said Pochettino when quizzed whether Kane's dominant header possessed traits of an old-fashioned English centre-forward.

A number of Arsenal fans are already suggesting the Gunners focus their efforts on winning the Europa League, which Manchester United did last season to qualify for the Champions League.

Kane has been in sensational form for Tottenham this season, and has now netted 23 goals in the Premier League this term.

"We'll look back and take some positives, but at the end of the day it was a big game for us and we lost".

"I am very pleased with our players". Why do we keep struggling on the road this term?

"I think they have done an incredible job, they are the team that you can praise the most in the Premier League, what (chairman) Daniel Levy has done, the way they have organised the club", said the Daily Telegraph's football writer.
