Kane: VAR penalty decision hard to take

Kane: VAR penalty decision hard to take Harry Kane says "it is hard to understand" how he was denied a penalty in Tottenham's defeat to Newcastle and believes VAR should have changed the decision. Kane appeared to be brought to the ground by falling Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles in the final 10 minutes of the 1-0 loss on Sunday and after referee Mike Dean waved play on, VAR upheld the decision. "It is hard to understand how it hasn't been given," Kane said. "Just like when a keeper comes out, uses his arms and trips you up - it's a penalty. "I kind of tripped over his (Lascelles) arm and then his body.

Aubameyang versus Kane

Harry Kane enjoys playing Arsenal like no other opponent. He is already the top scorer in Premier League north London derbies with nine goals in as many games, including three from four games at the Emirates - but can Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang match him on the day?

One more strike will take the England captain level with Emmanuel Adebayor and Bobby Smith's all-time shared record of 10 north London derby goals across all competitions, and given his success in this fixture so far you would not bet against him netting this weekend.

Your compass could point 'true north' for first time in 360 years

Your compass could point 'true north' for first time in 360 years For the first time in more than three centuries, your compass might finally be about to point true north. At some point over the next two weeks, compasses at Greenwich will point true north for the first time in about 360 years, while other parts of the UK may have to wait another two decades. Either way, it will be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Wait, my compass has been wrong all this time? Afraid so - to an extent, at least.

In Kane's Premier League career, which has brought 127 goals so far, he has only scored more times against Leicester (11) than Arsenal, who have been on the wrong end of nine league strikes from the 26-year-old.

Aubameyang has two from three so far in 2019/20 and netted a double in this fixture last season, but he missed a last-gasp penalty which would have won the game for Arsenal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the return game back in March.

He ended up with a share of the Golden Boot last season, but 31 of his 34 Premier League goals have come against teams outside the division's 'top six' - in fact, two of his three against Arenal's rivals at the top were in that game against Spurs last December.

Arsenal's incredible home record

The Gunners have been beaten only twice in 27 meetings on home soil during the Premier League era, and their record has remained pretty consistent since they moved to the Emirates 13 years ago too.

In fact, there are few teams they have enjoyed playing at the ground more than their nearest rivals. They have scored 34 goals against Tottenham at the Emirates, seven more than their nearest challengers Newcastle, and only picked up more home points against Stoke and Everton.

Even conceding first does not faze them, as their win last season showed. That was their third come-from-behind victory against Tottenham in the last eight Premier League home meetings between the teams.

Toothless Tottenham's trouble

Tottenham set a number of records against Newcastle on Sunday, but that will not be much consolation considering they ended up losing for the first time this season.

They had the most possession any team has managed in a Premier League game this season, the most completed passes and crosses too - but could not find a way past a Newcastle side who had lost their opening two games.

That would be bad enough were it down to poor finishing, but Spurs managed only two shots on target during the whole 90 minutes at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Aubameyang strike secures Arsenal comeback as Tottenham squander two goal lead

Aubameyang strike secures Arsenal comeback as Tottenham squander two goal lead Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang rescued a point for Arsenal as the Gunners fought back from two goals down in a breathless North London derby with Tottenham. Christian Eriksen tapped in the opener to give Spurs an early advantage before a Harry Kane penalty late in the half seemed to put them in control. Alexandre Lacazette pulled a crucial goal back for the home side, smashing in from a tight angle just before the break. Arsenal piled on the pressure in the second half and were rewarded as Aubameyang struck with twenty minutes to go to level the game at 2-2 and share the points between the two sides.
