Harry Kane nets equaliser for Tottenham in a feisty derby

Share

Spurs drew 1-1 at north London rivals Arsenal on Sunday, four days after losing 1-0 to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.

Kane had already equalised from the penalty spot, but they haven't scored from play since Dele Alli's late equaliser against West Brom in mid-October.

An Arsenal victory would have sent them top but they were pegged back after Harry Kane, returning from seven weeks on the sidelines, fired home a second-half penalty after the Gunners had taken the lead through a Kevin Wimmer own goal.

While Spurs remain the only unbeaten side in the division - their best start to a campaign since winning the title back in 1961 - and showed character to fight back from a goal down, they are still without a win in any competition since before the last global break.

"I think our level dropped and we were a bit too stretched as well".

Wenger is now without a win in five attempts against Spurs and admits his side's fatigue, along with their defensive nervousness and a lack of creativity in attack, played a factor in the 1-1 draw.

The goal reflected Arsenal's growing threat, but within six minutes of kick-off in the second half their lead had vanished.

"There was high intensity where I felt in the first half like we could always score", Wenger said.

Spurs were unhappy as it looked like two oncoming Arsenal players were offside when the cross came over. "Obviously the Champions League was very disappointing but I think it's a amusing crisis if you're unbeaten in the league".

"He's ready. He's fully fit", Pochettino said.

Also contributing with one clearance and three successful tackles, Dembele's defensive performance in front of a three-man Spurs back-line was also crucial as it limited the clear-cut opportunities that Arsenal managed to create in the game. "Arsenal was on a very good run".

"These games are about working hard for the team, maybe we will look back on it as a good result".

Wimmer headed the ball into his own net to open the scoring. A few fouls, the elbow on Walcott for example.

"We gave everything but were not as sharp physically as we can be in the final part of the game".

"'He [Wanyama] was lucky to stay on the pitch", said the Frenchman.

On the Spurs penalty, he added: "The referee has made a decision, we can't change that now".
