Aubameyang-Inspired Arsenal Thump Spurs

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to help Arsenal to a thrilling 4-2 derby win over Tottenham at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

 

The Gunners’ dominant start was rewarded 10 minutes in, when Aubameyang swept home from the spot after Vertonghen intercepted a cross towards the six-yard box with a raised hand.

 

Spurs found themselves level with half an hour played, though, when Bernd Leno failed to keep out Dier’s near-post header from a Christian Eriksen free-kick, after which a melee ensued among the Arsenal substitutes and Spurs’ celebrating players.

 

Dier looked to be marginally offside and referee Mike Dean was in the spotlight again four minutes later, when he penalised Rob Holding for sliding in on Son despite minimal contact, allowing Kane to make it 2-1 from 12 yards.

 

Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey came on at half-time and the latter helped the Gunners draw level, steering Hector Bellerin’s pass to Aubameyang, who bent a sublime first-time finish past the static Lloris.

 

Chances came and went before Arsenal got the crucial fifth goal 17 minutes from time, when Ramsey robbed Juan Foyth and Lacazette’s strike spun in off Dier’s shin.

 

Torreira’s first for the club followed three minutes later when he slotted past Lloris and celebrated with gusto.

 

Vertonghen was dismissed in the closing stages to compound a miserable day for the visitors.
