Arsenal 2 – Tottenham 0
It was a tough day for Spurs fans on Saturday as they lost to Arsenal at The Emirates without really putting up a fight.
Mauricio Pochettino had never lost to Arsenal in the Premier League but on Saturday the Argentine was left to rue decisions that went against his side.
These included Davidson Sanchez being penalised for a fair tackle on Alexis Sanchez for the free-kick that Arsenal scored their opener.
And, then Shkodran Mustafi being offside as the German head home the opener.
Where was Kane, Dele & Eriksen?
Ultimately though, whilst decisions went against Spurs, they simply failed to muster up the fight for a north London derby.
Arsenal won pretty much every battle going and the famed Tottenham front three failed to fire.
Harry Kane and Dele Alli were taken off on 75 minutes. Christian Eriksen, the new hero of Denmark, was virtually anonymous.
With Arsenal fans crowing – it is not a good weekend to be a Spurs fan…
Harry Kane speaks to Bild
As a result, we expect Harry Kane’s interview with Bild today to cheer up Spurs fans.
Kane was speaking to the German newspaper ahead of the Champions League match on Tuesday between Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham.
Bild point out that Kane, by virtue of finishing as top goal scorer in the Premier League for two seasons, is wanted by “other clubs”.
“My goal is to play my entire career only for Tottenham”
Kane responds: “My goal is to play my entire career only for Tottenham. We have a fantastic team, a great coach, a professional training centre and we’re getting a new stadium. At the moment, everything suits me here and I’m happy.”
Looking ahead to the Dortmund match, Kane says of the first game between the two sides: “Despite our 3: 1 win, it was a close match.”
The Spurs talisman also picks out which Dortmund players he admires: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the currently injured Marco Reus: “Both have caused many a stir in Europe over the last few years.”
Kane: “We are not afraid”
Kane continued on Dortmund: “Dortmund have a lot of pressure now and they have to win both matches to have a chance to progress.”
On Tottenham’s away form, Kane adds (presumably not including at Arsenal away yesterday): “We are not afraid, we have found our style, we are now also winning away from home and we are cleverer.”
With Spurs already qualified, it is entirely possible that Kane could be rested at Dortmund since he did not look fully fit on Saturday.
