The North London Derby is always one of the highlights of the Premier League calendar and this match was no exception.
The Gunners took an early lead when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slotted home a penalty within the opening ten minutes of Arsenal dominance.
But things soon changed as Spurs came back into it. Eric Dier headed an equaliser before Harry Kane converted a penalty of his own to make it 2-1 at halftime.
Unai Emery made two changes at the break and they certainly benefitted the home side. Aaron Ramsey flicked the ball through for Aubameyang whose first time shot fizzed past Hugo Lloris.

Alexandre Lacazette drilled a shot into the bottom corner of the net before Lucas Torreira burst clear to make it 4-2.
Spurs were reduced to ten men late on but it was Arsenal’s day.
