Tottenham Hotspur climbed up to third in the Premier League table courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Arsenal in the North London derby at Wembley this afternoon.

Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game – and his 32nd of the season – in front of a Premier League record attendance of 83,222 as Spurs claimed local bragging rights in addition to dealing a potentially fatal blow to Arsenal’s hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

The Gunners could now end the weekend eight points adrift of the Champions League places, whereas Spurs move above Liverpool and Chelsea, who do not play until Sunday and Monday respectively.

Arsenal’s top-four hopes look bleak, meanwhile, as they drop six points behind the Champions League places following their third away league defeat in a row and their seventh of the season.

The Gunners are now winless in their last 16 Premier League away games to members of the top five and could end the day closer to bottom of the table than leaders Manchester City.
