Tottenham claimed a 1-0 win over Arsenal in the second North London Derby of the season thanks to a second-half header from Harry Kane.
The England international loves scoring in this fixture and made no mistake when left-back Ben Davies sent in a tempting cross in the 49th minute at Wembley.
Here’s how it all panned out as Spurs claimed the bragging rights on derby day…
Man of the match
It’s such a close call that we’re going to give it to two players here, the duo that combined for the goal – Davies and Kane.
While the striker was responsible for a well-taken winner, the defender deserves huge credit for a tireless display down that left flank and a peach of a cross to create the all-important goal for his side.
There’s been much talk about Danny Rose and his Spurs future this season, but Davies is fast becoming the superior and more important player in that position.
Flop of the match
It has to be Henrikh Mkhitaryan. After three assists in a superb performance for Arsenal in the win over Everton last weekend, he disappeared in this one.
Manchester United fans certainly enjoyed it, trolling Gooners at half time over the Armenian’s no-show at Wembley.
This clip below pretty much sums it up for poor Micki…

Stat of the match
It may not surprise you to see that Kane is so good he’s already almost the leading scorer in this fixture in the Premier League. In just seven appearances. What a man.
7 – Harry Kane has seven goals in seven Premier League north London derby games – only Emmanuel Adebayor has scored more (8). Heaven. #TOTARS

Arsenal Twitter are not happy – the knives are out for Mkhitaryan and for ineffective sub Alexandre Lacazette…
I think Mkhitaryan and Lacazette share the same illness

Lacazette almost as good as Mkhitaryan there #TOTARS

Just witnessed the death of Arsenal. Lost all respect for Wenger crying foul again. Tactically castrated. Xhaka and Mkhitaryan stealing a living. No defenders, No leaders. No balls. Hope Aubameyang kept his return ticket. Welcome to the bottom 14.
