Arsenal gained bragging rights in the North London derby as they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in the Premier League at the Emirates stadium on Sunday.
The Gunners emerged victorious in the highly entertaining derby that saw them rise to the top four of the Premier League. It was a match they would probably remember for a long time as they were trailing 1-2 even after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had given them the lead from the spot in the 10th minute.
But Spurs fought back with goals from Eric Dier (30th minute) and Harry Kane (34th minute). A brawl in the touchline followed the goal by Dier after the England midfielder came up with delirious celebrations.
Just when it looked like Spurs would run away to record another win, Aubameyang had other ideas in mind as his wicked shot crashed into the back of the net in the 56th minute.
French striker Alexandre Lacazette then came off the bench to put ahead the Gunners in the 74th minute before Lucas Torreira buried the final nail in the coffin for Arsenal with a close-range finish just three minutes later to complete a stunning comeback–one to remember for the ages. Unai Emery’s men thus extended their unbeaten run to 19 matches in all competitions and are slowly establishing themselves to be a force to be reckoned with.
