Arsene wenger has admitted that it will be hard for Arsenal to finish in the Premier League top four after they suffered a 1-0 defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

A single headed goal from Harry Kane was enough to edge Tottenham the win over rivals Arsenal in Saturday's North London Derby.

BetVictor's Head of ante post Football Michael Triffitt said: "The top-four is a popular market and Arsenal have been well backed but games starting to run out now".

"I thought we deserved it, we should have finished it off but we'll take the one-nil".

"We missed opportunities on counter-attacks that are not missable at our level, due to the final ball". We were destabilised by the goal they scored and they had two or three more opportunities that they could have scored.

West Ham United beat Watford 2-0 and Stoke City came from behind to draw 1-1 against Brighton and Hove Albion.

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.

"I am convinced that if you win one trophy, then the rest will follow", he said.

Mauricio Pochettino feels the pressure of sending Tottenham to their new stadium as a Champions League team but insists the club's long-term plan is more important than winning a trophy. "This is what we are playing for and very confident we can keep it going".

Languishing in sixth place in the Premier League, Wenger's side are however just four points behind fifth placed Tottenham. We dominated but we did not create much. While the effect of Wenger's work on the offence was glaring in the Everton game, the North London derby might offer a clearer view as to his inactivity on the line that shields the defence. "There are loads of points still to play for, so we need to look forward".

Kane's headed victor was his 23rd goal of the Premier League season, in a performance that earned him the man of the match award.

'Overall it is a very disappointing result because the priority has to be to get to the Champions League through the Premier League.

"It's too early (to talk about the Europa League)".

The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
