Arsene Wenger hits out at Arsenal hero Martin Keown following Tottenham loss

Harry Kane netted the only goal in the north London derby to hand Spurs a crucial 1-0 win.
The England international headed home Ben Davies’ cross just after half-time at Wembley, netting his 32nd goal of the campaign.
BT Sport pundit Keown slammed his old side after the defeat, claiming the Gunners lacked the desire to defend against Kane.
However, Wenger has responded to his former players’ criticism, claiming Kane is a world-class striker who has dominated numerous Premier League defences.
When told about Keown’s comments on Arsenal’s players, Wenger said: “No, I don’t think they lacked the hunger to defend.
“They were up against a super striker who is one of the best in the world.
“He scores against everybody, so all of the defenders who play against him must lack hunger then!”
The loss leaves the Gunners in sixth place in the Premier League table, six points behind Liverpool in fourth.
However, the Reds have a game in hand, with Jurgen Klopp's side traveling to Southampton tomorrow afternoon.
Arsenal are back in action on Thursday evening when Wenger’s men travel to Ostersund in the Europa League.
