The victory lifts Mauricio Pochettino's side into third place in the table, having played a game more than Liverpool and Chelsea, while Arsenal slip to six points adrift of the coveted Champions League spots. Always, you dream of playing in these type of games.
While Arsenal were spending £60m - a club record - on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund, their rivals were strengthening in key areas by signing players that they desperately needed.
"We've got good momentum, the Champions League coming up, which we're looking forward to, then we've got to keep it going in the league". "If it is an opportunity we have to try to take it as well, but the priority remains the Premier League".
The Gunners have had some great success in Wembley in recent years, winning their last nine games in the stadium, including three FA Cups and three Community Shields.
But Wenger, who was challenged in his post match press conference about Keown's lacking hunger comments, insists that Kane is simply a world-class striker.
The match got off to a quick start with Spurs applying the main early pressure, but the opening goal nearly came through an Arsenal boot when Shkodran Mustafi - who broke the deadlock at the right end in the reverse fixture - nearly turned Dele Alli's low pass into his own net.
However, in the past three league games they have secured seven points from games against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.
Defeating Arsenal would help that ambition, while carrying the added bonus of derailing Arsenal.
"On that front, as much as I can be harsh with the referees, on that front I am quite tolerant with the referees because when you watch a game live it is very hard at 100 percent pace to distinguish whether it is a dive or not", he added.
"We are doing a fantastic job", Pochettino said afterwards. The gap is not massive but it will be tough.
The Gunners have lost serious ground on the other four teams battling for the top four.
Pochettino believes former Paris Saint Germain winger Lucas Moura, who arrived last month, is ready to make his debut, possibly as a substitute.
"I chose Spurs and I think it's turned out well". "He is starting to feel the legs".
"That's what we needed".
