Arsenal crush Spurs to claim derby spoils

Arsenal secured the North London bragging rights after thrashing Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring for the Gunners in the tenth minute, making no mistake from the penalty spot after Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen handled the ball inside the box.

The game open after 20 minutes with end-to-end attacks although the hosts looked more threatening on counter-attacks.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s charges got the stranglehold of the game after 25 minutes with the hosts backpedaling.

The pressure was too much for Arsenal as Eric Dier levelled matters for the visitors on the half-hour mark with a header at the near post following a free-kick by Christian Eriksen, 1-1.

The Gunners went down 2-1 three minutes later as Harry Kane converted from the spot for Spurs after Robert Holding brought down Son Heung-min inside the box.

Unai Emery’s troops were still under pressure in the last ten minutes of the half and went into the break trailing Tottenham 2-1.

Aubameyang brought the hosts level 11 minutes into the second stanza and completed his brace in the process with a first-time strike into the top corner following a through ball from Aaron Ramsey, 2-2.
