Kane: Tottenham’s win over Arsenal the ‘best’ night at new stadium

The England captain scored twice in a huge 3-0 win over Mikel Arteta’s side, closing the gap between the two to just one point.

Heung-min Son added a third seconds after the restart and Spurs could well have scored more, with Rob Holding sent off after only half an hour.

Kane had opened the scoring with a penalty after Cedric Soares was punished for a push on Son after 22 minutes and doubled Spurs’ lead with a stooping far-post header.

The Covid-19 pandemic had deprived Tottenham’s new stadium of nights like this and the first north London derby played in front of a full crowd there certainly did not disappoint from a Spurs perspective.

Antonio Conte’s side host relegation-threatened Burnley on Sunday and could move two points ahead of Arsenal with a win before they play Newcastle at St James’ Park on Monday night.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Kane said: “It was a big night tonight. There was pressure on us in front of our fans, but we delivered. Delighted with the win. It is always nice to win a derby.

“I think it was the best atmosphere at the new stadium. We could feel it in the build-up.”
