Mathieu Debuchy wasn't the obvious culprit but the difference in athleticism between he and starter Hector Bellerin was crucial to Spurs' opener in the 1-1 North London Derby.
Debuchy, hardly the speed merchant that Bellerin is and his lack of speed was probably behind his unwillingness to close down the speedy Danny Rose in midfield. The space allowed Rose plenty of time and space to put Harry Kane in on an Arsenal defense that was torn between dropping deep and stepping up for an offside trap. The result was Kane going in alone on Petr Cech who couldn't stop the England forward. Debuchy was saved blushes by a late Arsenal surge that saw Kieran Gibbs score from a Mesut Ozil cross.
