Arsenal competed against Tottenham Hotspur in front of the packed up Wembley spectators. Mauricio Pochettino and his side started against Arsenal with a solid line-up. Spurs started in the 3-5-2 formation where Sanchez, Alderweireld and Vertonghen paired to start the match as the back three. Trippier and Rose started as the right and left midfielders. Son and Kane made their appearance against the Gunners as the attacking duo.

On the other hand, Arsenal came up with a less convincing line-up where Mustafi started in the right-back position. Players such as Lucas Torreira, Mesut Ozil, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were left on the bench. Despite that, there was room for Aaron Ramsey, Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette to start the match.

In his last North London Derby, Ramsey decided to get his name into the scoresheet in the 16th minute. The Welsh midfielder who would soon join Juventus made no mistake after Lacazette set him free. He skipped past Lloris with ease and opened the scoring for his side.

Tottenham missed a few great chances in the first half with Leno making a couple of good saves to keep his side in front. The equalizer came for Spurs in the 74th minute of the match when Harry Kane was awarded a penalty. A poor and rash decision from Shkodran Mustafi meant that the English striker was awarded a spot kick, but upon looking at replays, it was agreed that Kane was offside in the buildup to the penalty. Kane converted from the spot without mistake.

In the final stages of the game, Hugo Lloris saved a brilliant penalty which was taken by substitute, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Following the draw, Arsenal stay fourth with 57 points from 29 matches while Tottenham Hotspur are in third with 61 points in the EPL.
