Harry Kane: Striker opened the scoring at the Emirates

Mauricio Pochettino was delighted by Tottenham’s display against Arsenal despite seeing his side squander a one-goal lead.

Spurs had the upper hand for much of the north London derby, and took the lead through Harry Kane, but were pegged back by Kieran Gibbs’ goal 13 minutes from time.

However Pochettino refused to be downbeat about the result, which leaves Tottenham three points outside the Champions League qualification places.

“The way we played we should feel very proud. The effort was brilliant. The level we showed and the commitment was fantastic. It’s the way we want to carry on,” the Argentinian said.

“In six days we’ve played three matches, maybe we felt it in the final minutes. We need to recognise we are a very young team. This experience is very important.

“We need to show we are maturing. The level we have today is good, we need to show more and to improve. It’s early to set a limit or to expect a lot of things.”
