Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen both miss OPEN GOALS in first half against Arsenal

Spurs came storming out the blocks in the last North London derby at White Hart Lane as we know it but failed to convert golden chances

Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen have both been immense this season.

But Spurs’ dynamic pair both missed open goals in the first half at White Hart Lane in a typically intense North London derby.

The first chance fell to Alli after Harry Kane’s shot deflected off Laurent Koscielny’s heel and settled at a nice height only for the former MK Dons midfielder to somehow head wide.

As if that spurned chance wasn’t enough to frustrate Mauricio Pochettino, Eriksen volleyed over from close range three minutes later.
