Kane's penalty denies Arsenal victory

Arsenal missed the chance to move top of the Premier League after being held to a 1-1 draw by Tottenham in the north London derby at the Emirates.

The unfortunate Wimmer became just the second man after Chris Armstrong to put through his own net in a north London derby during the Premier League era, as Spurs trailed going into the break.

But England international Kane, back in the team after recovering from an ankle injury, struck from the spot early in the second half as Mauricio Pochettino’s visitors earned a share of the spoils from an entertaining contest.

The equaliser, Kane’s fifth goal in four league meetings with the Gunners, saw the north London derby become the highest scoring fixture in Premier League history.

The result leaves Arsenal third, one point behind leaders Chelsea and three ahead of fifth-placed Spurs.

Tottenham started strongly on enemy territory, Kane narrowly failing to get on the end of an inviting pass to the back post five minutes in after good work down the left from Son Heung-min.
