Tottenham 2 : 1 Arsenal #COYG #Spurs #THFCvAFTHFCvAFC

Two Harry Kane goals helped Tottenham fight back to beat their North London rivals Arsenal 2-1 and move into the Premier League's top four.

Mesut Ozil’s third goal in as many matches gave the Gunners an 11th-minute lead, with David Ospina having to make a string of saves to keep the visitors in front.

Tottenham’s pressure paid off when Kane fired home a 56th-minute equaliser for his first goal in a North London derby.
The striker, under the watchful eye of England manager Roy Hodgson, then sealed victory four minutes from time with a looping header into the far corner.
The hosts started strongly, having plenty of possession and coming close when Kane’s curling right-footed effort was tipped around the post by Ospina at full stretch.
Arsenal broke the deadlock when Danny Welbeck burst past Danny Rose on the right to pull the ball back to Olivier Giroud, whose mis-hit shot fell for Ozil to smartly volley home from inside the area.
Ospina was called into action again to tip away Rose’s low strike towards the bottom corner, with the full-back dragging a similar effort inches wide of the post soon after.
The Gunners keeper needed to be alert to push Ryan Mason’s powerful strike away, while Nabil Bentaleb and Kane both saw efforts go wide of the post.
