Harry Kane had to step in to separate Heung-min Son and Rob Holding as things got heated in the early stages of the north London derby on Thursday night.The atmosphere inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was electric from the get-go with the home side desperate to drag themselves back into contention for the top four, and it didn't take long for the electricity to spill out onto the pitch.A coming together which saw Son topple over onto Holding's head sparked a testosterone-induced scuffle, which saw Ben Davies and Bukayo Saka stepping in as back-up for the respective team-mates, but Kane was on hand to keep control of things, calmly ushering Son and Holding away from one another.Crisis averted, but Holding, seemingly out for revenge, got himself booked after hauling Son to the ground minutes later - which would quickly come back to haunt him.Kane then gave Tottenham the lead from the penalty spot, before Holding's night came to an abrupt end via a moment of madness.

The 26-year-old went for Son again, this time elbowing the South Korean in the jaw as he looked to latch onto a lofted through ball from Eric Dier.A second yellow card followed, and Arsenal had a big hill to climb.Who will finish in the top four - Tottenham or Arsenal?
