Arsenal claimed all the three points in the North London derby on Sunday after beating Tottenham 4-2 in a pulsating encounter at the Emirates.
The Gunners dominated early on and took the lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty in the 10th minute, but were pegged back by Eric Dier’s near-post header in the 30th minute, which caused a ruckus after he celebrated in front of Arsenal fans.
Spurs then stunned the Emirates as Harry Kane converted from the spot after Rob Holding inexplicably left a leg in on Heung-min Son in the 34th minute, but Arsenal were level after the break through Aubameyang’s fine curling effort from the edge of the box in the 56th.
With 15 minutes remaining, substitute Alexandre Lacazette put Arsenal 3-2 ahead, squeezing a shot into the corner from 20 yards via a deflection, and they added a fourth two minutes later through Lucas Torreira after he raced through on goal at an angle.
Jan Vertonghen then saw red for a second yellow late on, and the result means Arsenal leapfrog their bitter rivals Spurs into fourth place in the Premier League table, eight points off leaders Manchester City.
