Arsenal FC v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

The North London derby has always been an enthralling encounter and this one also lived up to its billing. Both sides came into this match in good form, and a victory for the Gunners would have seen them move above Spurs into the fourth position.

The match started with Tottenham on the back foot as Vertoneghan handled the ball in the 10th minute to give Arsenal a penalty. Aubameyang made no mistake in firing it past Lloris to give the home side an early advantage. But Spurs levelled it with Eric Dier after he latched onto Eriksen's brilliant free-kick and headed it in at the near post. Dier then raced onto the touchline to celebrate in front of the Arsenal Faithful and the Arsenal substitutes weren't best pleased about it, which sparked a tussle on the touchline.

In the 34th minute, the match turned on its head when Son was brought down by Holding in the box and Tottenham were awarded a penalty. Harry Kane made no mistake from the spot and gave Spurs the lead going into half time.

In the second half, Aaron Ramsey was brought in by Arsenal and it tuned out to be a masterstroke. In the 56th minute, Arsenal pulled level through Aubameyang. A through-ball from Bellerin found Ramsey and the Welshman, with a sumptuous touch, found Aubameyang who unleashed a wicked first-time strike past Lloris into the top corner.

Arsenal then went ahead in the 74th minute after Spurs lost possession from their own throw-in and the ball was worked into Alexandre Lacazette whose stumbling shot deflected off Dier into the back of the net. Ramsey got the assist for this one too and it was his second one in the game. Arsenal made it four in the 77th minute after Lucas Torreira was found by Aubameyang with a sublime pass and the Uruguayan had all the time in the world to pick his spot and fire it past Lloris to ensure the win for the Gunners.

It was all over then, in a frantic North London Derby and Arsenal put in a brilliant display to beat Tottenham convincingly and that win saw the Gunner move up into the Champions League spot.
