In the Midweek action of the English Premier League Spurs took on Local Rivals Arsenal in the much awaited London Derby. Tottenham are fighting it out for the fourth position with Manchester City who are four points clear at the top and after the semifinal exit in the hands of Pompy at the weekend harry Redknapp would want his team to get back on track.
Danny Rose scored the goal of his life on his first start for Tottenham. As the corner came in for Spurs Almunia cleared with what looked like a decent punch, but only punched it as far as Rose who struck an absolutely ferocious left footed volley from all of 25 yards which travelled like a missile into the roof of the net. A wonder goal on the youngsters big night.
Arsenal fall to sleep at the back and no one picks up Gareth Bale in the inside right position. Jermaine Defoe plays a fantastic defence splitting pass to Bale and with Sagna failing to push up Bale is a yard onside and has the easy task of slotting the ball underneath Almunia to extend Spurs’ lead. Arsenal’s title hopes are fading fast!
