Currently, Spurs are fifth in the EPL points table with 49 points whereas Arsenal are sixth with 45 points.

"Possession is 50/50 basically in this game", he said.

"I'm not a big fan of the Europa League victor getting into the Champions League". Therefore, even a win for the Gunners can not see them go above Spurs this gameweek.

"We are going to challenge for both (the FA Cup and Champions League) and then we are trying to finish in the top four, so we have three targets".

And former England star Lineker took to social media to celebrate Kane's goal early in the second half at Wembley.

Arsenal's wretched away record against teams in the top five - they haven't won their last 16 of those fixtures - left Wenger cursing a lack of cutting edge and a defence that wilted when Kane rose to head home from Christian Eriksen's cross. For me, it's a very disappointing result because the priority has to be to get into the Champions League from the Premier League.

Was a constant presence in the final third for Arsenal but was often caught out at the back, leaving his backline without much cover. We missed opportunities on the counter attack that are not missable at our level with the final ball.

On the field Aubameyang and the new Arsenal signings failed to score in the defeat, thus leaving no doubt who, at least for the day, was the best striker. "My agent went to Arsenal, I wasn't there myself but it was very respectful and in the end I had to make a choice and I chose Spurs", he told The Mirror.

"I think he will be ready, maybe to be in contention for Saturday", Pochettino said.

The rampant Tottenham side led by Mauricio Pochettino are unbeaten in their last 11 games in all competition and are also unbeaten in 12 home matches in the Premier League. I believe as well that once they scored their goal that played a part. "We can only look at ourselves", he added. "That's been the issue, Arsenal haven't been able to control the central midfield in away games".

"If you look at the numbers, no, because he has high numbers", Wenger said when asked if there was a better striker in Europe at the moment than Kane.
