Arsenal Share Spoils In North London Derby Against Tottenham

Arsenal Share Spoils In North London Derby Against Tottenham

The first North London derby of the season between Arsenal and Tottenham ended in a frenetic 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal drew first blood after 26 minutes when Bukayo Saka's shot was deflected into his own goal by Spurs defender Cristian Romero.

But Spurs levelled three minutes before half-time when James Maddison crossed for captain Son Heung-min to equalise with a deft finish.

The Gunners later restored their lead on 54 minutes when Romero was penalised for handball following the intervention of VAR.

Saka stepped up to convert from 12 yards and fired the ball straight down the middle to send the home crowd into delirium.

The lead only lasted for just a minute as Maddison robbed Jorginho, a half-time substitute for the injured Declan Rice, to set up Son for another cool finish.

Arsenal pushed for the winner in injury time but Guglielmo Vicario did well to turn a low drive from Saka around the post.

The result means both teams, who are four points behind leaders Manchester City, remain unbeaten in the league after six games, though Spurs are ahead of Arsenal on goal difference.
