Spurs 1 Arsenal 0

The England striker scored his seventh goal in seven games against the Gunners and we carved out a whole host of chances after the interval, only for the visitors to so nearly spoil the party deep into stoppage time.

The first half had been fairly uneventful, Kane heading over the crossbar and Hector Bellerin driving over from 20 yards five minutes before the interval, but the same certainly couldn’t be said about the second period!

We took the lead just nine minutes after the restart when Ben Davies delivered a cross from the left and Kane climbed above two defenders to bury a header past Petr Cech, a goal which really brought the game to life.

The chances kept coming for us, only for the Arsenal goalkeeper to produce a string of fine saves to keep the game in the balance. After Kane had glanced a header just wide, Cech then beat out our England striker’s volley before keeping out Christian Eriksen’s free-kick and close-range efforts from substitute Erik Lamela and Kieran Trippier, while Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli both put glorious chances wide.

But for all our second half dominance, Arsenal so nearly snatched an unlikely point. Twice in the dying seconds Alexandre Lacazette should have scored, rifling a volley well over the bar and then, in the third minute of added time, latching into Mohammed Elneny’s through-ball and, with just Lloris to beat, shot wide of the far post.

There was still time for Arsenal to be awarded a free-kick 25 yards out, but when Mesut Ozil’s effort struck our wall, that signalled the end and the points were safe… just!

Back In The High Life Again

Steve Winwood

It used to seem to me
That my life ran on too fast
And I had to take it slowly
Just to make the good parts last
But when you’re born to run
It’s so hard to just slow down
So don’t be surprised to see me
Back in that bright part of town

I’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
I’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched me once will smile and take me in

And I’ll drink and dance with one hand free
Let the world back into me
And on I’ll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

You used to be the best
To make life be life to me
And I hope that you’re still out there
And you’re like you used to be
We’ll have ourselves a time
And we’ll dance ’til the morning sun
And we’ll let the good times come in
And we won’t stop ’til we’re done

We’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
We’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once will smile and take us in
And we’ll drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh we’ll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again

We’ll be back in the high life again
All the doors I closed one time will open up again
We’ll be back in the high life again
All the eyes that watched us once will smile and take us in
And we’ll drink and dance with one hand free
And have the world so easily
And oh we’ll be a sight to see
Back in the high life again
