Tottenham Hotspur were held to a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane against fierce rivals Arsenal in an exhilarating north London derby on Saturday afternoon.
It was the second game in succession that Spurs had dropped valuable points – in which victory in either would have sent them top – therefore allowing Leicester City to extend their lead over their title rivals.
But Harry Kane, who netted a stunning, curling strike against the Gunners, has insisted that, despite the disappointment of the result, his side remain positive as the race for the Premier League trophy hots up.
“I got the ball out my feet and thought ‘why not?’ and as soon as I hit it, I could see it going to that far post,” he said of his goal – just his second in seven games.
“To see it go in brought out a lot of emotion. From there, you just want to finish it off and win the game and be happy for the rest of the week.
“We’re leaving disappointed but look, we have to move on, we played well again and there is a long way to go, not just in the Premier League but we’ve another important game in the Europa League coming up this week,” the England international continued.
“We’ll stay positive and keep doing what we’re doing.”
