'Angry' Petr Cech hurting after Arsenal lose at Tottenham

To win against Arsenal in the last derby at White Hart Lane, it was so emotional for everyone.

In the 55th minute, Kieran Trippier hurled a long throw to Harry Kane, who competed with Laurent Koscielny as Dele Alli charged into the area.

"We are in the race for the title and we once again reduced the gap with Chelsea". "Could be, could be", Pochettino said.

"The biggest disappointment for us is to not be in the fight, at this period of the season, for the championship".

"I am very happy, but I am so calm because we have four games left to play and now it is important to be focussed in reducing the gap with Chelsea". It is four points but all is possible in football.

Conte saw his Chelsea team end Everton's run of eight consecutive home wins and it made it the ideal week for him - when it mattered the most. But will they really go for it, just three days after a Europa League semi-final decider?

Spurs have mathematically ensured they will finally finish above the Gunners come the end of the season, and Wenger congratulated them.

The 35th fixture of the English Premier League has been played this weekend, and many numbers and facts have been recorded. We've got a great squad, a real togetherness, and we're going in the right direction, so we've got to make sure we continue that and don't get carried away - even this season, don't get carried away. I must say congratulations to the players and fans as this season so far has been fantastic.

It's grim times, though, for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal, which last finished below Tottenham in 1995 ahead of the manager's arrival the following year.

Although Chelsea is inching closer to title, Tottenham is not giving up the chase.

Arsène Wenger could lament bad defending on the goals his team conceded and an overall timidity.

"I feel very proud, first of all because the players played their best and they were fantastic", he said. We just have to keep looking to improve. We need to give up on Project (Aaron) Ramsey, too. It was soft defending. He said: "Look the points are points".
