Tottenham fans didn’t have the best of times yesterday against Arsenal. The Lilywhites fell to a 1-1 draw at home to the Gunners at Wembley, and it could have been worse had Hugo Lloris not stepped up with a late penalty save. However, for the opening goal from Aaron Ramsey, the fans were far from pleased with Harry Kane’s sloppiness at the other end.

North London derbies are always massive games of football and the fans are always way more up for them than any other game. Harry Kane may have brought up a record yesterday when he bagged from the penalty spot, becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in North London derbies, however, before that the fans weren’t happy with their #10 for the way he lost the ball to start Arsenal’s counter-attack.
After Kane was caught in possession the Gunners sprung their trap. The ball found its way to Alexandre Lacazette who found a wonderful pass to Aaron Ramsey, despite a blunder from Davinson Sanchez, and from there the rest was history. It was far from a good goal to concede and the Lilywhites were very quick to jump on Harry Kane’s back for his areas.

Kane greedy in the box again when surrounded by 3 players….

What were they all doing? Harry Kane so sloppy and greedy as ever!

tell Kane to shoot the ball whenever he got the chance, he doesn’t have the capabilities to dance with the ball when 3 players surround him.

I swear if Harry took that chance we won't concede.

Kane is culprit to this goal as he is so greedy and not to pass to Sonny

The Lilywhites weren’t happy with Kane at all when they shipped the opening goal, yet the fans forgave him when he bagged from the spot.
