Tottenham’s dream of finishing above Arsenal for the first time in 22 years has become a reality as they secured a 2-0 at White Hart Lane.
The north London derby saw two second-half goals netted just 146 seconds apart thanks to Dele Alli – who marked his 17th league goal of the season – and Harry Kane.

The win moved Spurs 17 points clear of Arsenal making it impossible for the Gunners to close the gap, however winning the league is probably beyond them now.
Chelsea managed an emphatic 3-0 win at Everton which leaves Tottenham four points behind the table-toppers. The Blues have Middlesbrough, West Brom, Watford and Sunderland left to play and it’s looking likely Antonio Conte’s men will be lifting the trophy.
Friday night is a chance to move within a point of Chelsea, get them under some pressure. Their games look easy but get them under pressure

I just wish the gap was less than 4 as that would give Spurs something to play for at Hull! As Chelsea won't drop another point imo 😩😩

I would like it if Chelsea somehow drops 4 more points in the final 4 matches than Spurs, but that looks very unlikely.

Having announced they’d be moving to Wembley next season, Tottenham were able to relish winning the last north London derby hosted at White Hart Lane.
Fantastic game @SpursOfficial and a great way to finish the last London Darby at White hart lane! Before the new build! Class play as always
