A glorious victory at the Emirates stadium against Tottenham takes Arsenal to the fourth spot of the premier league table.
A Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double inspired a thrilling 4-2 north London derby triumph for Arsenal over Tottenham Hotspur as they climbed above their local rivals in the Premier League table.
Jan Vertonghen conceded a penalty with a handball to enable Aubameyang to slot in the opener on 10 minutes.
But Spurs struck twice in four minutes to lead at half-time, with Eric Dier heading in from Christian Eriksen’s free-kick before Harry Kane scored a penalty after Rob Holding’s foul on Son Heung-min.
After the break, Aubameyang brilliantly swept in a long-range equaliser, taking his tally to 10 PL goal this season and setting up a late victory.
Substitute Alexandre Lacazette found the net with a deflected effort on 74 minutes, and that was swiftly followed by Lucas Torreira’s drive from an acute angle to make it 4-2.
Vertonghen was sent off late on as Unai Emery’s side move up to fourth on 30 points, above fifth-placed Spurs on goal.
Tottenham have lost more points from winning positions in Premier League games against Arsenal than any side have against another in the competition’s history (40). Crumbled.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the first player to score with 10 consecutive shots on target in the Premier League since October 2007 (Benni McCarthy for Blackburn). Pinpoint.
No player has scored more Premier League North London derby goals than Harry Kane (8, level with Emmanuel Adebayor). Ruthless.
