'Angry' Petr Cech hurting after Arsenal lose at Tottenham

Should Spurs claim a win at the London Stadium, they will cut the deficit between them and first placed Chelsea to just one point.

Dele Alli gave Spurs the lead after 55 minutes and when Gabriel brought down Kane in the box two minutes later, the England global had the ideal opportunity to extend his hot streak against Arsenal.

Cech insists finishing below Tottenham, however, is not chief among the squad's disappointments. It was not the objective (to finish below Tottenham), so we are disappointed with that. "But I know it's an interesting subject for the media". "The players didn't watch because they were focused on the game". We knew because we were watching but they were very focused.

"Of course I am disappointed because it was a great opportunity to reduce the gap".

"We have to play more and create more than we did today".

Harry Kane became Tottenham's record scorer in Premier League derbies against Arsenal by converting a penalty in Sunday's clash at White Hart Lane.

Wenger felt the first goal and the spot kick were soft.

"And for our fans, I feel very happy for them".

"He won't be available for 90 minutes, but you don't need to play the whole game to be effective".

Draws for Manchester City and Manchester United in the Premier League earlier on Sunday took them six and five points respectively above Wenger's side, who have a game in hand, in the race for Champions League football next season.

"It will be very hard but we have to fight", Wenger told reporters after Sunday's loss at White Hart Lane.
