The spoils were shared in the end between Tottenham and Arsenal in the North London Derby but either side could have walked away with the three points.
The game had no shortage of big moments and controversial incidents, with Harry Kane’s penalty claim towards the end, in particular, being the subject of a lot of debate post-match.
Ian Holloway has now weighed in on the debate and he has asserted that the Spurs striker purposefully looked for contact and went over.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Holloway accused the England captain of being a repeat offender in this respect.

Irrespective of whether one feels the incident warranted a penalty or not, to accuse Kane of diving is completely ridiculous. There was clear contact and strikers do the same thing outside the box all the time and reliably win fouls.
