Danny Rose has set his sights on Chelsea after his wonder strike against Arsenal.

The 19-year-old scored a screamer on his Premier League debut for Tottenham in the 2-1 win at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.

“I don’t think I have ever hit a better shot than that in my life,” said Rose.

“I was going to bring it down at first and then at the last minute I just thought I would hit it. I caught it sweetly and it went in.

“I was very nervous but the lads helped me out massively before the kick-off.

“I think when I was younger – at Leeds when I was about 12 – I hit a nice 20 yarder but this one tops it off.

“It’s the first time we have beaten Arsenal in a few years so it was nice to get on the scoresheet.

“I didn’t know what to do after scoring. I ran to the touchline and then I ran to look for my Dad. I managed to see him.

“Then I looked around and Arsenal had taken the kick-off so I just forgot about it straight away and I ended up defending.”

“We needed to win to put a bit of pressure on Man City. They have got a hard game at the weekend (Manchester United) and so have we,” he added.

“I know a lot of people wrote us off with the hard games we had coming up so it was important to get three points against Arsenal. We put in a good performance as well.

“It proves we can beat Chelsea. We have come on leaps and bounds this season. We have been more consistent away from home as well.

“It’s the first time we have beaten Arsenal in 11 years and we have shown we can beat anyone at home.”

“The atmosphere in the dressing room was unbelievable after the game,” said Rose.

“Everyone was buzzing and jumping on Gomes. He made three terrific, world-class saves and everyone was buzzing.”
