Keown: Kanu Scored My Favourite Arsenal Away Goal Vs Tottenham

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has picked one of Nigeria legend Nwankwo Kanu's goals as his favourite in matches against Tottenham Hotspur, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Kanu and Keown were in the Arsenal squad together in the late 1990s and early 2000s when the Gunners were one of the best sides in England.

When asked for his favourite moment at White Hart Lane in his 'Tackle Keown' column in The Daily Mail on Thursday, the former England centre-back replied:

"My favourite was when Kanu knocked the ball over Luke Young's head and scored late on in a 3-1 win in 1999.

"There was a sublime arrogance about that goal — it showed the difference in quality between the two sides at that time.

"Then, we never really got too involved in the hype surrounding the derby because Manchester United were our main opponents.
"When you are vying for titles you do not worry about your neighbours unless they are your direct opponent in the title race.

"Tottenham had the chance to put a dent in our title ambitions but they weren't able to wipe the smiles off our faces."

Tottenham host Arsenal in a Premier League clash on Sunday in what  should be the final North London derby at White Hart Lane before Spurs leave the ground for their new stadium.
