Five things we learned from Tottenham 1-0 Arsenal

The Gunners' final ball was far too often letting them down on their rare forays forward, with Mkhitaryan particularly guilty of some poor crossing from promising positions, although Dele Alli likewise failed to pick out Eriksen at the end of a promising Spurs move.

Spurs now go to Juventus on Tuesday in their Champions League last 16 first leg, while Arsenal are in Sweden to face Ostersund in their Europa League round of 32 first-leg clash on Thursday evening. Having been the better side for the majority of the game, Tottenham had a lot of chances that they could not convert and Pochettino's men should have scored at least three goals.

"I think they have done an incredible job, they are the team that you can praise the most in the Premier League, what (chairman) Daniel Levy has done, the way they have organised the club", said the Daily Telegraph's football writer.

"I don't think they lack hunger to defend", he declared.

'There was more at stake than the derby, I said that before the game, and that is why it is so disappointing to lose the way we lost it'.

Arsenal are in sixth place in the league with 45 points and they are four points behind the fifth placed, Tottenham Hotspurs.

Tottenham's torrent form at Wembley continued; Arsenal's did not.




All that was missing was another goal from the hosts at its temporary home in front of a Premier League record crowd of 83,222 - 38 short of the English league record set in 1948. Spurs continued with the same essence in the second half and eventually scored a goal through a Harry Kane header. You can say, "We are not strong enough when defending our goal", but when you look at the numbers and compare them to the top six, we do not score enough goals away from home.

"In the final part of the game, we should have come back to 1-1".

It took until the 27th minute for the game's first real chance to be created, but Kane could not keep his header down.

Cech for a 1-0 lead. We must win all the games, and Manchester City fail every game.

On Saturday morning, Arsenal's most famous fan Piers Morgan suggested that Pierre Emerick Aubameyang would enjoy the derby more than Kane.

ARSENE WENGER will not prioritise the Europa League - despite virtually conceding Arsenal's top-four hopes.
