Wimmer (42′ og), Kane (51′)

The much anticipated game of the season for both teams finished with honours even as neither Arsenal or Tottenham were at their best. Arsenal again failing to take their chance to go top of the league.

In the early parts of the match, the game was extremely cagey as it looked like both teams did not want to lose all three points with the top six being as very tight. Spurs were looking the better side and looking more in control.

In the 35th minute, Arsenal started raising their game and began to have some major chances of note. The most obviously being Iwobi’s miss hit shot after possibly the best move of the match and then seeing a Walcott strike cannon back off the bar with Ozil unable to turn in the ball as it rebounded to him.

With only three minutes remaining until half-time, a cross from an Ozil free kick saw Wimmer head past his own keeper Lloris and into his own net giving Arsenal a 1-0 lead going into the break.

Arsenal came out for the second half Arsenal looking nervous, and this was typified by their defending when in the 50th minute Dembele travelled with ease into the Arsenal both and was brought down by Koscielny, with Clattenburg given no choice but to award the penalty. Harry Kane slotted home the spot kick to level and also give Tottenham a bit of hope.

Eriksen then went close for Spurs with a nicely struck volley which was well saved by Cech and Nacho Monreal made a last ditch tackle at the back post to stop Tottenham snatching all three points from Arsenal.

Finally, very late on, Giroud went close with a header hat in the end was well caught by Lloris in the Spurs goal. A spurs free kick also cannoned off the inside of the post after it had travelled over everybody in the penalty area.

Not really the result either set of fans would have wanted, but seeing as both teams were pretty average a draw was no doubt better than a loss to local rivals supporters. The North London derby is normally one of the better of the English local derbies, but this game with both sides only mustering five shots on target was one that won’t be remembered.

Thanks for reading
