Arsenal defeat Spurs in thrilling derby
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to give Arsenal a hard fought 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium.
Alexandre Lacazette and the impressive Lucas Torreira gave the Gunners some much needed cushion after Eric Dier and Harry Kane provided Spurs with a temporary lead.
The eventful derby saw six goals, two penalties, seven yellow cards, one red, an ugly skirmish and enough incident to keep the Football Association’s disciplinary department busy for the next few days.
The win leaves Arsenal in fourth place of the Premier League, one place above Tottenham thanks to a better goal difference.
