Kane: We're disappointed, but my goal was alright

Harry Kane says that Tottenham are “disappointed” not to have beaten Arsenal in the north London derby.

Spurs came from a goal down to hold a 2-1 lead over their bitter rivals, who had also had Francis Coquelin sent off.

But Alexis Sanchez scored a late equaliser to dent their Premier League title hopes, allowing leaders Leicester to open up a five-point gap on Mauricio Pochettino’s side. Here are 16 Conclusions from the game.

Pochettino’s men still look the most likely to run Leicester close for the title and Kane, who scored a superb, curling effort to put the hosts ahead, said drawing with their rivals had left the players disappointed.

“I got the ball out my feet and thought ‘why not?’ and as soon as I hit it, I could see it going to that far post,” he said of his goal – just his second in seven games.

“To see it go in brought out a lot of emotion. From there, you just want to finish it off and win the game and be happy for the rest of the week.

“We’re leaving disappointed but look, we have to move on, we played well again and there is a long way to go, not just in the Premier League but we’ve another important game in the Europa League coming up this week.

“We’ll stay positive and keep doing what we’re doing.”
