Arsenal & Spurs share spoils in London derby

Arsenal battled back from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw in the north London derby.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 71st-minute strike rescued a point for the Gunners, as he applied a deft finish to Matteo Guendouzi’s cross.

Tottenham Hotspur had raced into a 2-0 lead at Emirates Stadium through landmark goals from Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane.

Eriksen tapped the visitors in front for his 50th Premier League goal on 10 minutes, before Kane converted a penalty for a record-equalling 10th goal in this fixture.

Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal a lifeline just before half-time with a powerful strike from inside the area, and in a lively second half, Aubameyang’s goal ensured the points were shared.

Arsenal are fifth with seven points, with Spurs moving into ninth place.
