North London is RED!
Beating Sp*rs always feels good. There is nothing better than putting goals past your rivals and taking 3 points off them. There are so many talking points to reflect on from the game so, we thought we’d just list them below this lovely reminder picture of how we won the Premier League at White Hart Lane.
Arsenal started brilliantly. They shot out the blocks and for the first 10 minutes Sp*rs were just humbled by the sheer pace and power of the onslaught that was hitting them and after a daft bit of defending by Vertonghen the Gunners were one up after Aubameyang put away the resulting penalty.
Then the inevitable happened. Dier knocked in fluky goal which frankly Leno should have saved and then he started a mini pitch riot by going over to the Arsenal fans to tell them to shush. Unfortunately for him and his mates (who aren’t too bright on the best of days) he did it in front of the Arsenal subs keeping warm so there was a bit of argy bargy as the Tottenham boys were well all truly put in their place.
Then the next inevitable thing happened: Son did a wonderful twisting dive in the box and Kane put away the penalty. Tottenham were 2-1 up…and then they f*cked it up!
Unai Emery’s come back Kings stepped up through the gears.
In the 56th minute Aubameyang curled in an unstoppable shot to make it 2 a piece.
In the 75th minute Lacazette slid one in from 25 yards out to make it 3-2 to the Gunners.
And then the best bit. Man of the Match Torreira scored his first goal for Arsenal in the 77th minute and celebrated with true passion and pride. His shirt came off, the fans went wild and North London became truly red.
The turn around was complete, Arsenal 4 Tottenham 2.
What a day, what a match, what a victory! (And what a party afterwards)
Next up? A trip to Old Trafford on Wednesday to say hello to the specialist in failure at another ground where we have previously won the Premier League.
