7 - Harry Kane has seven goals in seven Premier League north London derby games - only Emmanuel Adebayor has scored more (8).
Spurs came into the game having seen off Manchester United at home and earned a good point away at Liverpool and Pochettino said the dressing room was oozing with belief as they head into the business end of the season.
Spurs now go to Juventus on Tuesday in their Champions League last 16 first leg, while Arsenal are in Sweden to face Ostersund in their Europa League round of 32 first-leg clash on Thursday evening. As so often is the case when Tottenham get a result, Harry Kane led the Spurs line and, as Arsene Wenger said in his post-match interview, was the difference between the two sides.
Tottenham are now unbeaten in their last nine league matches and remain in a good position to qualify for the Champions League via a top-four finish.
The 20-year-old Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos was the only defensive addition made by Arsenal in January and when Wenger was asked why he didn't strengthen a porous defence which has conceded the most goals out of the top six (36) so far this season, a familiar excuse was made.More news: Lindsey Vonn's canine turns into meme after lengthy journey to Olympics
"After the game I need to explain this?" We missed opportunities on the counter-attacks that are not missable at our level, with the final ball.
The two were excellent last weekend, combining for a goal and three assists in their first start together.
"Once they scored you could see we were wobbling and they could have scored more". If you don't take them you will suffer at the end of the day. We played incredible football, we created a lot of chances.
"I tell you again because in our experience of football he is one of the best, because he deserves that, to be one of the best". I think we have to fight to have the chance to come back.
"Then comes the Champions League, a competition that excites our fans and us". "I thought we deserved it, we should have finished it off but we'll take the one-nil".
All that was missing was another goal from the hosts at its temporary home in front of a Premier League record crowd of 83,222 - 38 short of the English league record set in 1948.
