Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham as Kane’s second half penalty equalized for Spurs in london derby, Arsenal homed Tottenham in north london derby this Sunday afternoon hoping to go top of the table with a win. Spurs needed to win themselves to keep in touching distance with other title rivals. Spurs started with 5 at the back and they played better football in first half but were undone by a controversial own goal by Kevin Wimmer just minutes before halftime. They have all to do in second half if they were to turn things around.
Kane had not played for Spurs since 18 September but stepped up to calmly stroke in the leveller, Harry Kane marked his return from injury with the equaliser that kept Tottenham as the only unbeaten team in the Premier League after a north London derby draw at Arsenal. The England striker, sidelined since 18 September with an ankle injury, scored from the penalty spot early in the second half after Kevin Wimmer’s own goal three minutes before the interval gave Arsenal the advantage.
The Gunners knew victory would put them top of the table, and Theo Walcott almost put them ahead, crashing a shot against the post, before Wimmer glanced Mesut Ozil’s free-kick past Hugo Lloris. Spurs responded well with Kane’s spot-kick after Laurent Koscielny tangled with Mousa Dembele. They then threatened to take all three points, Christian Eriksen forcing a fine save from Petr Cech before his angled free-kick bounced back off the post in the closing minutes.
