Tottenham turned up the pressure on arch-rivals Arsenal in the race for a place in next season's Champions League with an emphatic north London derby victory.

Arsenal could have confirmed a place in the Premier League's top four with a win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but endured a dismal night to now stand only one point clear of Spurs with two games left.

In a feverish atmosphere, Harry Kane gave Spurs the lead from the spot in the 22nd minute after Son Heung-min was fouled by Cedric Soares, then added a second before the break with a stooping far-post header after Rodrigo Bentancur flicked on a corner.

In between, Arsenal had been reduced to 10 men when Rob Holding was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Son, while the South Korean finished off any hopes the Gunners had when he fired in from 10 yards two minutes after half-time.

I Call True: Son had a rough game here but it certainly paid off for Spurs!

This well deserved win takes Spurs to just a point behind the Gunners now but if arsenal won the remaining two games Spurs can't overtake them so it's still in Arsenal's hands as things stand.

Spurs looking like they might just take the top 4 spot off Arsenal if they can keep this form up
