Arsenal beat Tottenham 4-2 in north London derby
Arsenal beat local rivals Tottenham 4-2 in today’s north London derby, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice in the thrilling game.
Aubameyang became the first Premier League player to reach 10 goals for the season before late strikes from Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira secured all three points for Unai Emery’s rampant side.
Vertonghen’s late red card made matters even worse for Tottenham, and Pochettino’s side are now out of the top four, with Arsenal moving into the final Champions League place courtesy of a better goal difference.
First, Aubameyang hammered Arsenal back on level terms with an exquisite strike, before Lacazette’s deflected attempt made it 3-2 before Torreira capped a wonderful display with a brilliantly taken goal – his first for the club.
Arsenal put in a brilliant display to beat Tottenham convincingly. Aubameyang’s penalty got things started, and although Dier and Kane put Spurs ahead, the Gunners came on strong in the second half.
