We fought together - Nabil

Nabil Bentaleb said togetherness was key against Arsenal.


The team’s incredible energy and constant pressing of the Gunners to win the ball back - as highlighted on Match Of The Day - was one of the main contributing factors of the 2-1 win at White Hart Lane.

We recovered from Mesut Ozil’s early goal against the run of play to secure maximum points thanks to a double from Harry Kane in the 55th and 86th minutes.

Nabil, who forced David Ospina into a fine save at 1-1, provided the assist for Harry’s winner, clipping in the cross for the striker to head home and send the Lane into raptures.

The victory made it three wins on the trot, four in the last five and one defeat in our last 10 in the Premier League.

"It was a really important game for us,” said Nabil.

“We knew it was going to be a fight, we showed up, we all fought together as a team and managed to get the three points. Everyone is happy.”


As for his contribution to the winner, Nabil added: “Once I picked up the ball I was just thinking about putting it in the box and I saw Harry, good movement and I put the ball in the right place.

“We all know Harry’s qualities, he can score at any moment, just feed him and he’ll do the rest. He’s been amazing this season.”
