Share

Things could have been worse for Mauricio Pochettino's side, with Eric Dier testing referee Mike Dean's patience with a taunt aimed at Arsenal's Stephan Lichsteiner and causing Pochettino to intervene to help calm matters.

The Metropolitan Police said after the match that they had made seven arrests at the game for various public order offences, including one for an object thrown onto the field of play.

Parlour was heaping praise on the 27-year-old dynamic midfielder in the wake of his stellar effort in Arsenal's 4-2 win over arch-rivals Tottenham on Sunday. It is a very special victory to give our supporters.

Wright, speaking as a pundit on Match of the Day 2, said: "It's ironic really in a week where I present a show celebrating the pioneers and how far we've come".

With Davinson Sanchez still unavailable due to injury, the Argentine has little option but to recall Alderweireld when Spurs return to Premier League action on Wednesday night against Southampton.

"But above all it is three points, like against Bournemouth".

"We are happy and enjoying [ourselves]".

Television replays showed a banana skin on the pitch as Arsenal celebrated their opening goal, scored by Gabon global Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the penalty spot.

The unrest was not restricted to the stands as the two sets of players had to be separated following Dier's equaliser on a feisty afternoon in north London.

"He has a back ache", Emery said.

"It baffles me because if you take the emotion out of football you're going to destroy the game for everyone".

"They have absolutely been sensational today [Sunday], the first 20 minutes was as good as I've seen here for a long time in terms of getting the crowd behind you, the quality, the tackling, the pressing", he added.

"Their players approached us. It wasn't because of that we lost".
