Arsene Wenger waxed lyrical about Harry Kane’s goal as Arsenal were beaten in Saturday’s North London derby.
Kane’s 23rd Premier League goal of the season gave Tottenham the North London bragging rights as they beat Arsenal 1-0 at Wembley.
The division’s leading marksman was, once again, in the right place at the right time, 49 minutes in to head past Petr Cech.
Tottenham are now seven points clear of Arsenal in the table, with the Gunners having lost eight games already this season.
“In the first half we missed three or four opportunities on the counter attack which is difficult to swallow, always the final ball. We contained them to very little,” Wenger said after the game.
“Once they scored you could see we were wobbling and they could have scored more but in the last 10 minutes we should have come back to 1-1.
“The first goal was key and we conceded it. Kane made the difference, that’s what he’s about. I have seen the replay, it is no foul, just good centre-forward play. We can only look at ourselves.
