One of the biggest rivalries in football between two north London football clubs – Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs took place last night at the Emirates stadium. The Gunners put on a wonderful display as they managed to win 3-1 against Spurs.
Arsenal was firing all their rounds early on as something fans would not expect as they took the lead early in the 12th minute of the game when Saka waltz through the Spurs’ defence line and made a pass to Emile Smith Rowe who was cutting through the middle before tapping the ball into the bottom corner of the net.
Son Heung-Min tried to equalize at the 21st minute of the game by dribbling pass the Arsenal defence line and taking his shot which was then blocked by Aaron Ramsdale.
Arsenal then made several counterattack attempts and finally they breached through the Spurs defence line again when Smith-Rowe brought the ball through the left side of the field before passing it to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who slotted past Hugo Lloris to extend their lead.
Spurs was later punished again after Harry Kane lost the ball in midfield and tried to win it back. However the brilliant Saka kept his composure to put the ball in the back of the net.
After the 79th minute, Song Heung-min did manage pull one back for his side after receiving a pass from Sergio Reguilon then smashing the ball pass Ramsdale. However, it was not enough as the game ended with Arsenal taking the three points home.
