Tottenham’s 22-year wait to finish above Arsenal is over but their title chase is not done yet after Dele Alli and Harry Kane sealed a 2-0 victory in White Hart Lane’s last north London derby.
Only 146 seconds separated Alli’s second-half opener and Kane converting from the penalty spot as Spurs moved 17 points clear of the Gunners and made it mathematically impossible for their rivals to close the gap.
Victory was only tarnished by Chelsea’s emphatic 3-0 win at Everton earlier in the day, which means Tottenham could only reduce the difference at the top back to four points.
