Wenger offers congratulations to Spurs

ARSENAL keeper Petr Cech felt "angry and disappointed" after Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Tottenham left their hopes of Champions League qualification hanging by a thread.

Arsenal sit in sixth and six points below fourth-place Manchester City though have a game in hand.

Spurs assured themselves of a first league finish above Arsenal since 1995 on Sunday as they ran out 2-0 winners over Arsene Wenger's side in the final North London Derby at White Hart Lane.

For the first time in over two decades, the Lilywhites will finish higher than the Gunners and Wenger admitted that the 17-point gap between them is a massive one: "Look, the points are the points". It was a huge game for both teams and they managed to win. We wanted to win more than them.

"When you are 2-0 down against a team having their best season, who are full of confidence, it's going to always be hard and it was hard for us to get back into the game". For the Gunners, the defeat proves costly as the chance to go within three points of 3 placed Liverpool goes amiss. "We are in the race for the title and now we have to be focused on the West Ham game".

When further questioned if his side were disappointed with the Chelsea result, Pochettino said: "Disappointed about what?" But of course, Arsenal let us down again. But now it's important to feel proud, happy, because the last game against Arsenal and all that means for our fans and those who love Tottenham, it was a fantastic afternoon.

Former Everton midfielder Leon Osman believes that Tottenham Hotspur have overtaken Arsenal as North London's top team, making them a more attractive destination for potential transfer targets. "Today was another chance to see the team learning and improving. We have to play more and create more than we did".

Replays showed that the defender made contact with Kane's shin but was it enough to send him tumbling over?

"I know they are trying to".
