Arsenal have their third defeat in seven days which begs the question is it time Arsene Wenger leaves the Emirates? Spurs also continue on their winning ways against Huddersfield and with both Kane and Deli in the England Squad for this summer, we ask just how good are they? That and all the rest of the games from the weekend.
