FT: Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur

It appears that North London is still red! What a performance from the Wizard of Oz! Harry Kane looked a bit lost today. Someone please point him towards Arsenal station so he can crawl back to the hole he lives under at Wembley!
...
90+2' After a moment of mirth where Alexis channelled his inner Jurgen Klinsmann, Iwobi is found in the box, but hammers a low drive wide.
...
90' 4 minutes of injury time.
...
90' Alexis Sanchez opts to allow Granit Xhaka to take a free kick from range, but the Swiss midfielder hammers it wide.
...
Mesut Ozil has created 34 chances for his team-mates this season - more than any other player in the Premier League
...
89' My eyes. This is truly Arsenal's day. Francis Coquelin with some swift feet tow wriggle out of trouble and earn himself a foul.
...
87' Excellent play from Iwobi, as he turns away from his marker and sends Alexis clean through on goal, only for a bad touch to stop the Chilean's foray forward. The move ends with Iwobi managing to get a shot on goal, but Dier blocks his effort.
...
85' HOW DID HE MISS?! A long ball is headed on perfectly by Llorente into Son's path, but with only Cech to beat, the Korean volleys horribly over - to huge cheers from the Emirates crowd, who are in full voice now.
...
84' Mesut Ozil comes off to a standing ovation and is replaced by Alex Iwobi
...
83' CLOSE! Spurs corner is cleared out to Sanchez and Alexis sets off on the counter, with Mesut Ozil picking out Bellerin with a clever pass, but his shot is blocked.
...
81' WHAT. A. SAVE. Son lofts a ball from the left wing to the far post, where Dier heads the ball back across goal. His header looks destined to nestle in the net, only for Cech to stick out an arm and make a crucial reflex save.
...
78' Hector Bellerin is down with an injury after Llorente runs his studs down the back of the Spaniard's shin, but Arsenal's fullback eventually shrugs it off and is back on his feet.
...
76' WHAT A SAVE! Mesut Ozil does well to pick out Alexis in the box, and the Chilean takes a touch, wriggles past his marker with a clever turn and shoots from a narrow angle on the left, only for Lloris to make a crucial save.
...
75' Harry Kane and Dele Alli are replaced by Fernando Llorente and Heung-Min Son
...
74' Lacazette comes off to be replaced by Francis Coquelin, with plenty of the Arsenal crowd surprised.
...
72' Nacho Monreal goes into the book for a crude challenge on Dele Alli, but only after the ref played advantage and Spurs' attack petered out. Good refereeing.
...
71' WHAT A CHANCE! A pass forward is deflected into Ozil down the right channel and he picks out the onrushing Sanchez with a clever cutback, only for the Chilean to scuff his shot with the goal at his mercy. Will Arsenal come to rue these chances?
...
70' OOOOOF! Ramsey passes to Alexis on the left edge of the box, and the Chilean takes a touch, works a yard of space and unleashes a thunderbolt, which swerves over the bar.
...
68' Alexis uses his body cleverly to win a free kick on the left wing. Ozil sends it to Mustafi at the far post, but Dier clears it out for a corner with panic writ large upon his face.

56' LUCKY! Xhaka slips in the middle and Eriksen collects the ball, spreading it to Kane on the right side of the box. With the goal at his mercy, Kane unleashes a shot, only for Mustafi to slide in with a pivotal block. Excellent defending!
...
55' CLOSE! Bellerin wins the ball back and Arsenal set off on a counter-attack with Ozil, who spreads it wide to Alexis, whose return pass through the legs of the defender is overhit and Lloris collects the ball.
...
53' Alexandre Lacazette goes down while chasing a through ball under pressure from Davinson Sanchez, but referee Mike Dean waves away the Arsenal players' appeals with an air of disdain. Justifiably, that was rather soft.
...
52' Arsenal win the ball off Trippier and set off on a swift counter-attack, with Alex Lacazette earning a corner. Sanchez sends the ball in from the left, with Spurs clearance landing at the feet of Bellerin. The wingback sends a cross back to the far post, but Mustafi lets it go after miscommunication.
...
49' Harry Kane slides into the back of Granit Xhaka on the byline, and with the Arsenal players surrounding the ref, baying for a yellow card, Mike Dean opts to only book the Englishman.
...
48' Shkodran Mustafi goes into the book for a foul from behind on Harry Kane. A bit harsh, as the German got the ball. The set-piece nearly comes off for Spurs, but Arsenal clear the call.
...
47' A relatively quiet start to the second half, as Arsenal press Tottenham high up the pitch and keep their defensive shape.
...
46' KICKOFF! Arsenal get us underway in the second half, kicking off from right to left.

...

Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham!
...
41' GOAAAL ALEXIS SANCHEZ!!!
...
40' No longer a library, the Emirates has come alive - a true cauldron of noise post the goal. Can Harry Kane silence the home crowd? He turns Koscielny in the box and looks to have fashioned a chance all of his own, but Mustafi bails his defensive partner out.
...
37' Replays show that Spurs may have some reason to be unhappy, as Mustafi looked a shade offside when the delivery came.
...
36' Mesut Ozil sends in a peach of a free-kick from the left and Mustafi responds with a stunning looping header across the keeper and into the top corner to send the Emirates wild!

Arsenal 1-0 Tottenham
...
36' GOOOOOAL MUSTAFI!!!
...
35' Davinson Sanchez is lucky to escape a yellow card as he hauls down Alexis Sanchez on the left wing while chasing a left-wing cross. Arsenal get a free-kick in a promising position.
...
34' Kane forces Cech into a save with an excellent header from a right-wing cross, but the danger is taken off the shot by a deflection from Mustafi.

...
32' Xhaka goes into the book for clattering into Dele Alli, with Mike Dean giving him the yellow card for his previous indiscretions as well.
...
30' Half an hour gone, and while the game has remained goalless - we're witnessing a feverish atmosphere here, with plenty of attacking play from both sides.
...
29' ALMOST! Bellerin sends Ozil clear down the right channel in the box, and his cutback is almost turned into his own net by Dier, only for the ball to loop narrowly wide. 
...
27' SHOT! Davies does well to work a yard of space and then sends in a devilish cross into the box, where Harry Kane lurks with menace, but lurk is all he does. Davinson Sanchez is forced into an error by Alexis moments later with a back pass, with Lloris coming out to deny Lacazette from getting to the ball.
...
24' Khaka prevents Sissoko from counter-attacking and ought to really receive a yellow card, but Mike Dean calls him over for a word and shows some leniency. Meanwhile, Ozil earns a corner...
