Spurs stars Kane and Alli keep their eyes on the prize after Arsenal victory

By Ciaran McGrath in Football

GOALS from Dele Alli and Harry Kane ensured Tottenham came out on top in the final North London derby prior to the redevelopment of the club’s stadium.

Alli scored from six yards 10 minutes into the second half, and Kane scored from the spot after being felled inside the area three minutes later in a dominant display which kept alive the club’s remote title hopes alive.

Doubtless much of the post-match talk will concern the fact that the result ensures the Lilywhites will finish above their arch-rivals for the first time in 22 years - but Kane insisted he was focused on the task in hand.

The 23-year-old hotman told Sky Sports at the final whistle:

"We obviously wanted to finish the last north London derby here on a high note and we did that. We worked hard, we created the better chances, what a day. A great weekend for us.

"It was a penalty for me. I was clipped, it was a foul. I went down the middle earlier in the season against Arsenal which is probably why Petr Cech stayed there this time. We’re only thinking about the title race - the fans having bragging rights is just an added bonus."

Alli, who headed wide from five yards out in the first half, added: "I have to blame myself a bit for my header at the far post - I was kicking myself for missing that - but we dominated from the start.

"It’s a huge win for us and the fans. We just have to keep looking to improve. We fell off at the end of last season so it’s important we continue to build on what we’re doing."
