North London Derby: Tottenham Beat Arsenal To Keep Title Hopes Alive
Tottenham kept pace with Premier League leaders Chelsea after a 2-0 win over Arsenal in the North London derby at White Hart Lane.
Dele Alli scored his 17th league goal of the season to break the deadlock on 55 minutes, and Harry Kane picked himself up to score from the penalty spot three minutes later. The three-minute second-half spell settled the match, with Kane, who has scored in five consecutive league meetings with the Gunners, once again their nemesis.
Chelsea’s impressive 3-0 win at Everton earlier on Super Sunday put the pressure on Spurs, but they responded to ensure the gap to top spot remains four points.
The victory also means they are guaranteed to finish above Arsenal in the Premier League for the first time since 1995.
