Tottenham striker Harry Kane says it was important they stopped their losing streak after they played out a 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.

Harry Kane's penalty put the hosts level with 16 minutes left after Aaron Ramsey's 16th-minute goal threatened to inflict a third successive Premier League defeat for Mauricio Pochettino’s Lilywhites.

It was a dramatic north London derby at Wembley and following the match Kane told BBC Match of the Day: “It was another good derby, a passionate one, it had a bit of everything.

“In the first-half we were disappointed; we created a few chances but were not clinical enough. The second-half was just about fighting for the team and club and we did that and we got the goal we deserved. Towards the end of the game it went a bit crazy.

“For us it was important to stop the losing streak, at this point it might give us a little boost with a big game in the Champions League and then Southampton.”

On their top four chances, the England striker replied: "Over the last week we have put ourselves under pressure but we have done it in the past and every game is a big game.

"I feel good three tough games coming back from injury it'll be good to get the freshness back.

"Pochettino wants us to go out there with passion and thankfully we did that."
