Truths from the north London derby: 'Spurs are the new Arsenal'


Gunners fans traditionally celebrate "St Totteringham's Day" on the day they secure the points to finish above Spurs, but a 2-0 win at White Hart Lane ensured that this season will be different.

Ozil, 28, couldn't prevent Spurs winning the final north London derby at White Hart Lane, where goals from Harry Kane and Dele Alli gave Mauricio Pochettino's side victory.

But he added that Spurs finishing ahead of their North London rivals "happened once in 20 years". Mathematically it has to happen once.

The Spurs boss said: "I am happy because I think when you play a derby like Tottenham against Arsenal it is always important to win".

"We have reduced the gap to Chelsea again". They were sharper than us.

"It was quite an even game until they scored the first goal".

The company is no longer providing consolidated revenue guidance primarily due to the unpredictability of wireless handset sales. Revenues of $39.37 billion were off almost 3% year-over-year, and failed to reach the Street's consensus mark of $40.53 billion.

Pochettino revealed his players did not know the result of the Chelsea game and admitted a tinge of disappointment that the Toffees could not get a result to help Tottenham's quest. For some unfathomable reason, Gabriel chooses to swing his leg as he attempts to tackle Kane in the penalty area, with the Spurs striker going wide, away from goal.

"I have to blame myself a bit for my header at the far post - I was kicking myself for missing that - but we dominated from the start", Alli said, speaking to BBC Sport.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech felt "angry and disappointed" after Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Tottenham left their hopes of Champions League qualification hanging by a thread. We are four behind with four games to play.

"We have to play more and create more than we did today". "But we did it previous year, beating them at home, when they were also on fire and everything". If they win their final four games to finish with 89 points, that would be a total not bettered by anyone in the top flight since Manchester United won the League with 90 in 2008-09. It will be a tough game and a hard game and if we are able to win we will see what happens.

Thierry Henry admits he can have no complaints over comments that Arsenal were outworked and outplayed by Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. "That is for us to be focused on now as Friday we have another important game, against West Ham", Pochettino said.
