Son and Kane were Tottenham’s heroes once again, firing their side back to the top of the Premier League table with a 2-0 win over rivals Arsenal in front of 2,000 fans.
Arsenal were right to worry from Spurs’ conter-attacks, yet Rob Holding gave Son far too much space as the attacker exploited a great key pass from Kane, and broke down the left flank with a brilliant shot from 25 yards.
Kane equalized Mesut’s a record, with 10th assist in only 11 games, in the history of the Premier League.
Hojbjerg was exceptional and repeatedly disturbing Arsenal – although, the Gunners had contested for Giovanni Lo Celso to be sent off when he fouled Lacazette after being booked for a challenge on Willian. A second yellow would have been hard and could change the result.
Although Arsenal had 62 per cent of first-half possession and played most of the game in Spurs’ half, it was Jose Mourinho’s side who struck again just before the break, with Son assisting this time Kane to smash with his left-foot off the bar’s underside. That was the 250th goal of his career, and 100th at home for Spurs.
Thomas Partey – back in the side after four games out with a thigh injury – left the pitch with an injury problem.
Spurs only had one shot in the second half but their defensive work was what mattered and Arsenal came out for the second half searching for an immediate response, but once again, despite dominating the ball, they couldn’t carve out major openings.
By the final whistle, Arsenal recorded nearly 70 per cent possession, but the Spurs fans heading home happy after watching their side for the first time in nine months.
