Arsenal 5-2 Tottenham
Arsenal fought back from a two-goal deficit to claim all three points from a superb North London derby against Tottenham at Emirates Stadium.
New Spurs recruit Louis Saha put his side ahead in the fourth minute with a fortuitious deflected effort, before Emmanuel Adebayor scored against his former club from the penalty spot after Gareth Bale had gone down without anyone touching him.
However, Gunners right-back Bacary Sagana reduced the arrears in the 40th minute with a powerful header.
Then, just three minutes later, Robin van Persie curled a left footed effort beyond the reach of Brad Friedel to ensure that the sides went into the break level.
The hosting Gunners came out for the second half in the ascendancy and edged themselves in front in the 51st minute when Tomas Rosicky finished off a counter-attack.
Two goals in the space of three minutes from England international Theo Walcott then sealed the victory for Arsenal, who are up to fourth in the Premier League table with the three points.
Scott Parker was sent off late on to compound Tottenham’s misery and confirm Arsenal’s victory.
Shall we make a DVD? Arsenal 5-2 Tottenham.
