Arsenal 5-2 Tottenham


Written by Chris Wheatley

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.

Humiliation.
Diving Bale a disgrace.
Adebayoffside a laughable excuse for a footballer.
If Scott Parker can play for England – so can I.
‘Arry Redknapp – a manager who has relegated more teams than trophies won!

Class is forever – not for half a season.

Not good enough. Arsenal r still 7 points behind Spurs in the League. Pride must be salvaged. We must finish above Spurs. Chelsea & Man City still to play. Good start to the end of the season though.

Brilliant response from Theo after a poor first half. Also Mikel Arteta proved why we got him over Parker. Absolutely class.

Not going to lie. Was worried about todays game.

But my god, pulled it out the bad when needed it the most! Best Arsenal display ive seen in a long while. Hopefully on the way up, and catch the lesser half of North London

Stunning game, Spurs was leveled with the ground by the Arsenal bulldozer, after two lucky goals we completely trashed them at it was a true joy to watch and a game that Arsenal fans will remember for a long time.

Nice to see Mr. Redknapp face more RED than ever, because North London is RED.

Credit to the team, the spirit was excellent. And to Arsène, who made the decision to start Benayoun and Rosicky and didn’t take Walcott off at HT. There’s only one team in London!

Well done to the team, finally something that we can be proud of! Let’s enjoy it!
This defeat doesn’t come good for Spurs as they’re going to play v MU next week, although we face another though challenge v Liverpool.
With 12 matches yet to play this season, we can even have a chance for finishing 3rd. Spurs will play against Everton and Chelsea this month. It’s up to us.
Maybe we can also go through v Milan, who knows?

Our problem hasn’t been on the ball these season its been off the the ball….The reason we won that game, we were hungry and we closed down the ball and didnt give spurs anytime to move the ball around. Great physical performance and also on the day that our season went to pieces last year. Brilliant mental strength from the boys. Come on you gooners!!

High 5 – 2 Rocky. He dragged us kicking and screaming back into the game and showed everyone else on the pitch how it’s done.

Van Persie’s left leg is more valuable than the entire Spurs team.

North London is still Red. 7 points can be made up easily in this unpredictable season. An advert for the Premier League.

Amazing game – agree with @london53 good to see Benayoun and Rosicky start as I feel this made us much more direct up front. I never really took much notice of Benayoun until I went to the Norwich reserves game where he was man of the match -although he wasnt faultless today I think he and Rosicky made us tick.

What has happened to rosicky this season ? He’s gained 5 yards of pace and the ability to tackle. Amazing. If djourou gets a new contract then tommy must get one.

Also credit to walcott! He annoys the hell out of me most of the time but he showed real character today to come back from an awful 1st half.

Harrys face was a picture (a very ugly one) hahahhahahahahahahahahaha

North London is red

RVP and Rosicky great yes, but I think Song was (again) an unsung hero. His assists are great and his range of passing has really improved and he has a great ability to get the ball away when in a tight spot. Arteta was good but would prefer to see a proper def mid to sit with Song (bring back Gilberto!)
