Arsenal vs Tottenham, Highlights, English Premier League 2019: Cracking North London derby ends in 2-2 draw
  • 23:09 (IST)

    Terrific match. A good entertainer for neutrals. Arsenal were the better side and they would be happy to get a point after going down by two goals. Plenty of work to do for Mauricio Pochettino​ and Tottenham. With the kind of quality Tottenham have, they should've looked for winning the match after going up by two goals. Maybe things would finally settle down after the international break. 

    That's all we have for now. Thanks for joining and we wish you a good night.

    Flurry of chances for Arsenal. They are trying hard to find the winner. Pepe's shot from the right is inches away from the goal. Meanwhile, Ceballos took down Dier in the penalty box and it should've been a penalty for Tottenham. Referee and the VAR says no.

    Phew! That was terrific first half of football. Arsenal started the game strongly but got caught on the break and conceded the first goal. Eriksen made no mistake from close range. Then Xhaka commited a foul on Son in the box and Kane converted the spot kick to make it 2-0 for Tottenham. Just before the break, Lacazette ensures the deficit is reduced with a good finish.

  • 20:07 (IST)

    Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the English Premier League North London derby between Unai Emery's Arsenal and Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham. 

    Form wise, Arsenal started the season on a better note than their city rivals. In three matches, Arsenal have won twice and lost against Liverpool while Tottenham have four points from three matches, having won only one match so far. 

    We will bring you all the updates from the match so stay tuned. 

Preview: Playing last season’s Champions League finalists in back-to-back Premier League games is the best test Arsenal could have asked for, manager Unai Emery said on Thursday ahead of the weekend’s north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal lost 3-1 to European champions Liverpool in a top-of-the-table clash last weekend and they host Spurs on Sunday, a team that has won only once in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium.

“Matches like last week against Liverpool, this week against Tottenham, they are two teams who played the Champions League final. It’s amazing,” Emery told reporters. “I think it’s the best test and every time is a good moment to play against them.

“Intensity is very important. They’re going to try and play with identity and we need to impose our game plan against them knowing it’s going to be difficult.

“We need to look at our position defensively and offensively. Above all, we need to play each ball, each metre, each minute with that intensity. After, we need to be clever when we have the ball and are in good situations.”

Emery is yet to start Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and new recruit Nicolas Pepe up front together and the Spaniard said they might not be deployed together this weekend.

“My decision in each moment is thinking about how we are,” Emery added. “With Lacazette, he had a problem with his ankle... He’s getting better and feeling better with his ankle, it’s very positive.

“With Pepe, he came here later than the others but he is getting and feeling better in each match. Aubameyang is very important for us... The most important thing for me is to have chances and we can score with different players.”
