Harry Kane scored the victor four minutes into the second half as Tottenham Hotspur beat Arsenal 1-0 in a Premier League north London derby at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Harry Kane is "the present and the future" of Tottenham according to manager Mauricio Pochettino, following the striker's match-winning display in Spurs' 1-0 win over Arsenal. Spurs continued with the same essence in the second half and eventually scored a goal through a Harry Kane header.

After missing a good chance in a tense first half, Kane put the home side ahead when he rose to head Ben Davies' 49th-minute cross back across the goal and into the bottom corner. "I had a few headers in the game so it was nice to see that one go in", Kane said. Firstly, I think the game should have been finished at half-time for me. We missed opportunities on counter-attacks that are not missable at our level.

Kane's goal was his seventh in Premier League North London derbies and only Emmanuel Adebayor, who played for both clubs, has more in the fixture with nine.

"I am so happy to win".

Pochettino's team were doing all the pressing and were finally rewarded in the 49th minute.

'That makes it much more hard now but we have to fight as long as we have a mathematical chance. Overall for me it's a very disappointing result, because the priority has to be to be in the Champions League through the Premier League.

He said: "We missed an opportunity in the first half to take the lead. Football is about scoring goals, and if you look at the numbers, compared to the top six, we do not score enough goals away from home".
