Tottenham Come out tops in Battle for Top four, as Gunners fail to Fire

Tottenham Hotspur were able to reduce the gap between them and their North London rivals, Arsenal to a point when the two clashed on Thursday night.

Son and Kane, Tonight’s goalscorers.

The Antonio Conte-led side took the lead in the 22nd minute through Harry Kane, when the referee pointed to the spot after Cedric bundled Son Heung-min in the box.

Things went from bad to worse for Arteta’s men when Holding received a second yellow as he brought down Son for attempting to chase down an Eric Dier through ball.

Kane then made it 2:0 just four minutes later when Bentancur nodded down a Son cross to the back post, the English forward scoring with a flying header.

Any hopes for a comeback were quickly dashed just few minutes into the second half after Son lashed into the far corner to secure a crucial win.

Arsenal take on Newcastle next while their host on the night, Spurs will entertain relegation-struggling Burnley next.
