Arsenal Survive Tottenham Scare At Emirates

Arsenal Survive Tottenham Scare At Emirates

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette scored fight-back goals to help Arsenal play out a pulsating 2-2 draw with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

It was an exciting moment in the Premier League as Arsenal roared back from 2-0 down at home.

Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen scored the opener through a nudged into an empty net.

Arsenal faced much pressure from the Spurs, even being in possession of most of the ball but Spurs were more fierce on the attack and Leno was keen to keep out efforts from Kane and Eriksen.

Tottenham were awarded a penalty for a tactless foul by Granit Xhaka on Son. Kane converted it in the 40th minute.

But Lacazette’s pulled one back for the Gunners before half-time with a spectacular strike after a pass from Nicolas Pepe.

Gabon striker Aubameyang pushed a lofted pass from Matteo Guendouzi into the net in the 71st minute.

It was his third goal in four Premier League games this season. Arsenal’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos had a goal ruled out for offside while Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko spurned a last-gasp chance in a thrilling finale by blasting over the bar.

Arsenal have seven points while Spurs are on five from four games each.

Tottenham have not recorded a league win at the Emirates stadium in nine years.
