"You will not have 10 chances; if you don't take them, you will suffer at the end of the day".

The Londoners controlled possession in home wins over United and Arsenal and a 2-2 draw at Anfield, but their best results in the Champions League came with a more counter-attacking style.

'It is too early, ' said Wenger.

Harry Kane has scored six goals in six Premier League games against Arsenal, only failing to score in one those games - the reverse fixture this season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said he will take his strongest team to Sweden for Thursday's Europa League game against Ostersund and backed Alexandre Lacazette to start scoring again. I'm not a great fan of qualifying for the Europa League through the Champions League.

This is the first meeting between Spurs and Arsenal at Wembley since April 1993, when they met in an FA Cup semi-final, with Arsenal winning 1-0 from a Tony Adams goal.

The Koreas previously held summits in 2000 and 2007, both hosted in Pyongyang by Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Un's late father. A spokesperson for Moon's office said that pre-conditions needed to be met before the summit takes place.

"I think it is important for the belief of the team", Pochettino added.

"In the first half we missed three or four opportunities on the counter attack which is hard to swallow, always the final ball".

'That makes it much more hard now but we have to fight as long as we have a mathematical chance.

Immediately after Kane's goal, which meant Cech has now gone nine Premier League matches without a clean sheet, the longest run of his career, it could've gotten worse quickly for Arsenal. Kane probably should have had a hat-trick to his name, but as the talisman of this team, his all-round forward play in the second half was superb and was the basis upon which Spurs were able to open up their opponents easily. Spurs continued with the same essence in the second half and eventually scored a goal through a Harry Kane header.

A low-key first half had featured nearly nothing in the way of goalmouth incident, with Arsenal wasting several promising breaks with poor final passes.

That maybe would not have been enough, but would be better than being 1-0 down. "That's why it's so disappointing to lose the game in the way we lost it".
