Harry Kane was delighted following Tottenham’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal in the final north London derby at White Hart Lane before the ground is demolished.
The England international scored from the penalty spot within three minutes of Dele Alli’s opener early in the second half as Spurs moved back to within four points of Chelsea to keep the title race alive.
Tottenham’s win ensured they would finish above Arsenal for the first time in 22 years and virtually assured the club Champions League football next season based on our superior goal difference compared to Manchester United.
Kane told Sky Sports 1: “Incredible. We obviously wanted to finish the last north London derby here on a high note and we did that.
“We were fantastic from the back all the way forward. We worked hard – we outworked them – we created the better chances and probably should have had a couple more in that first half.
“What a day. It’s been a great weekend for us.
“The fans have got the bragging rights for now but we’ve still got four important games to finish off.”
Jan Vertonghen immediately turned his attention to next week’s fixture at West Ham and piling more pressure on Chelsea.
“It was a massive game in so many different ways,” said the Belgian defender.
“We showed from the start we wanted to win more than them, and that we want to stay in the title race.
“It was a great performance throughout the team, from Hugo (Lloris) to Harry.
“We can’t do anything else other than keep on winning games and putting pressure on them.
“If we win our game on Friday it’ll be down to one point and then let’s see what they do.”
