But Arsenal’s lead was shortlived after Gabriel took down Richarlison inside his own box. Harry Kane stepped as much as take the resulting spot-kick, calmly chipping down the center as Aaron Ramsdale dived to his right.
It was the 14th north London derby goal Kane had scored in 16 games against Tottenham’s arch-rivals. He also overtook Thierry Henry with the penalty being his forty fourth goal in all London derbies having enjoyed good records against West Ham, Crystal Palace, Fulham and Chelsea.
A win for Tottenham will see them jump above Arsenal within the league table with Manchester City playing rivals Manchester United on Sunday.
