Spurs grab bragging rights and a Champions League lifeline
Tottenham effectively ended the title challenge of north London rivals Arsenal with a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane. And the result ensures Spurs keep the pressure on Manchester City as they battle for the fourth Champions League spot.
Harry Redknapp’s team bounced back from Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final defeat in perfect fashion with a goal inside 10 minutes from Premier League debutant Danny Rose. The 19-year-old’s stunning strike is well worth watching. Gareth Bale added a second immediately after half-time, and the Gunners could only muster a Nicklas Bendtner consolation in response.
