Some Arsenal fans have expressed their pleasure after midfielder Matteo Guendouzi came up with one of his best performances in the Gunners shirt in the north London derby.

The France youth international has made impressive progress over the past year with the club and he has taken his performances to the next level this season with his improved distribution and interception skills.

Against Spurs, the Gunners looked to be heading for a possible defeat at 2-0 down in the 41st minute but Guendouzi paved the way for the comeback draw with a stellar display from the centre of the park.

The 20-year-old had a fairly normal first half in the north London derby, but he was partly responsible for creating Alexandre Lacazette’s goal before the break after pressing at the right time to win the ball high up the pitch.

In the second half, Guendouzi was undoubtedly the standout performer among the central midfielders but he could have easily bagged the leveller barring the sublime save from Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Nonetheless, he eventually made the key difference after he was able to deliver a sublime pass behind the Spurs defence which directly contributed to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s equaliser.

As a result, a number of Gunners supporters have been left elated and a few of them have taken to Twitter to express their views over the midfielder’s showing.

Despite Guendouzi’s exploits, the Gunners could not complete the comeback with the victory but there are still positives from the nature of the response after going 2-0 down.

Unai Emery’s side are currently just outside of the top four on goal difference. They are scheduled to face Watford away from home following the first international break of the season.
