      Fantastic challenge from Kevin Wimmer! Arsenal look like they might go on and win the game as Ramsey bulldozes his way through the middle, but before he can get the shot away, he is foiled by the Austrian, who comes in with a brilliant goal and game-saving tackle! Superb defending!

      Full time at White Hart Lane. It was dubbed as one of the matches of the season before it got under way, and it has not disappointed as Tottenham and Arsenal play out a highly entertaining 2-2 draw in this top-of-the-table clash. The Gunners took the lead against the run of play before the break thr

      Half time at White Hart Lane. Arsenal, despite not being their best and with Spurs arguably having the better of the play, go into the break with a narrow 1-0 lead after a clever flick from Aaron Ramsey. Pochettino can be happy with his side's performance despite the scoreline, but probably should h

      Tottenham have lost just one of their last seven Premier League games against the Gunners at White Hart Lane, while Wenger's men have scored exactly one goal in each of their last six league games away at Spurs and each of the last four trips to face their rivals. Arsenal can take some heart from th

      One very interesting question that is raised this afternoon is just who needs the victory more today, Tottenham or Arsenal? Pochettino's outfit are facing their best opportunity to go for the title in many a year and are further motivated by the prospect of finishing above their rivals, whereas Weng

      The last clash between Tottenham and Arsenal was a typically tense and entertaining affair, taking place at the start of November at the Emirates. Spurs looked primed to claim derby glory when Harry Kane gave them the lead 32 minutes in, but their hearts were broken just 13 minutes from time when an

      Gunners fans have a right to be worried as they are coming up against a Tottenham side who, up until midweek, were unbeaten in seven league matches. The impressive run for Spurs saw them shoot right up the table into second place, but accusations of anxiety came at them a few days ago when they pass

      Arsenal are by no means faltering compared to Spurs disastrously, though, as a win for them today would see them go level on points with Pochettino's outfit. Indeed, it is more their recent run of form which has catalysed a cause for concern amongst fans, as they have lost their last three matches i

      Since Arsene Wenger took charge of the Gunners in 1996, Tottenham have never finished above Arsenal in the Premier League and have more or less lived in the shadows of their city rivals. However, the signs are this season that this trend could soon be broken, as Spurs continue to impress under the t

      Good afternoon football fans! Welcome to LIVE coverage of the Barclays Premier League clash between Tottenham and Arsenal from White Hart Lane!

      The North London derby is under way!
    • 2'
      As expected, the game has started at a tremendous pace with both sides egged on by this vibrant White Hart Lane crowd, who are more than up for this top-of-the-table clash! Some decent ventures into the final third early on, but still early doors.
    • 3'
      Tottenham get their first corner of the match after some superb work by Alli, who has been all over the place in these early stages. The former MK Dons man actually should have did a little better with a pass into feet inside the box, but ends up working hard to win the corner a few moments later. E
    • 5'
      SAVE FROM OSPINA! Eriksen pops up around 30 yards out and just manages to get to the ball before Mertesacker to release Kane down the left channel. The Spurs striker then cuts in on his right foot before whipping a strike aimed at the far corner, but the Arsenal keeper reads it and walks off his lin
    • 7'
      Looking at the starting line-ups, we hypothesised that Ramsey would perhaps feature down the right wing, but judging by how the game has started he is playing in a more central area, almost in a midfield three alongside Coquelin and Elneny. Will be interesting to see if Wenger changes it up as the m
    • 9'
      It didn't take long for the tackles to start flying in and the first player given a telling off by the referee is Coquelin, who goes in slightly late on Kane down the left wing. Not the worst challenge you will see this afternoon, but the Frenchman probably won't be allowed too many more incidents l

      Spurs have been much the better side in the opening portion of this match and are really taking this game to Arsenal, who have desperately struggled to keep hold of possession when they break out of defence. Welbeck, Ozil, and Alexis have barely had a few touches between them so far, but still can b
    • 13'
      Spurs with a great chance to get some quality into the box here as Gibbs bundles over Kane a yard or so outside the box down the right flank. Lamela and Eriksen both stand over it, with the Argentine eventually running up to whip a strike at goal, but it ends up being disappointingly slammed into t
    • 15'
      In a very similar situation to a few moments ago, Tottenham are awarded yet another free kick after a daft Arsenal challenge around their own box. Eriksen pulls rank this time and steps up to dangerously whip the set-piece into an area around the six-yard box, but there are no takers for the hosts w
    • 17'
      After a misplaced pass by Wimmer which is picked up in the final third by Arsenal, the Gunners finally find themselves in a position to get a decent period of sustained possession in opposition territory. Ramsery and Ozil exchange a few passes without much penetration, though, and Spurs eventually r
    • 19'
      Rose picks up the ball at left-back and moves forward completely unopposed down the flank before finding a yard of space to curl a teasing cross into the box, but at the second attempt, Gabriel manages to clear the danger. Once again, Spurs waste no time in recycling possession and look to heap pres
    • 21'
      We are just approaching the midway point of the first half now and even with all the high tempo ventures forward, neither goalkeeper has been tested to a relatively high degree. Indeed, Lloris between the sticks for Tottenham has barely had a touch, with Ospina only sparingly called into action.
    • 23'
      The fans are creating a typically atmospheric North London derby today so it will be interesting to see how referee Michael Oliver approaches his work in this tense cauldron. He's doing a great job so far, letting the game flow when he can, but no real big decisions of note to make, which is how he
    • 25'
      WHAT A SAVE FROM OSPINA! Alli breaks away down the wing before fizzing a wicked cross into the box, which Lamela bundles towards goal with a shinned attempt! It looks poised to find the back of the net but Spurs are foiled by the Colombian, who somehow gets across goal to make the stunning block! St
    • 26'
      First booking of the match and it is a deserved one for Bellerin as he halts a Spurs attack by pulling the shirt of Rose just a yard or so before the left-back could make his way into the box. Eriksen eventually takes the free kick, but again it is straight into the arms of the grateful Ospina.
    • 28'
      It is one yellow card apiece for Tottenham and Arsenal now as Lamela goes into the book for needlessly hauling Welbeck to the floor even when Ospina had the ball all the way back in the Gunners penalty area. Daft reason to see yellow, really.
    • 30'
      The bookings are coming typically thick and fast in this North London derby now, as we have just had our third within the space of five minutes. The guilty party on this occasion is, unsurprisingly, Coquelin, who languishes in possession too much before eventually losing it and trying to claw it bac
    • 32'
      Superb goalkeeping from Lloris as he is called into real action for the first time in the match. Arsenal move forward on a pacey counterattack and eventually clip the ball over the Spurs defence looking for the run of Welbeck, but the Frenchman reads it and sprints off his line before clearing with
    • 34'
      Danny Rose has been impressive down the left wing so far and he is so full of confidence that he can actually go by players without even meaning it! The situation comes about as he takes some strides forward before taking a poor touch, but luckily for him, Ramsey read the fortuitous dummy which allo
    • 36'
      Wenger will not be happy as to how little his star players, Alexis and Ozil, have managed to affect the game so far. Both men have the ability to be a match winner, but unfortunately for them, they are just not seeing enough possession to execute any passes or decent ventures into dangerous areas.
    • 39'
      G A. Ramsey Assist Bellerín
    • 39'
      Superb composure by Bellerin as he decides against the shot before terrifically picking out Ramsey with a precision pass.
    • 39'
      GOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLL FOR ARSENAL! COMPLETELY AGAINST THE RUN OF PLAY! The Gunners put together a lovely move down the left wing and Welbeck leads the charge with a powerful run before picking out Bellerin at the back post, but subsequently finding Ramsey inside the box! The Welshman then finds the

      The Spurs fans have been absolutely rocked by that Arsenal goal here, and it is the red part of the stadium that is creating all the noise at the moment! Indeed, Wenger's men have rediscovered their mojo going forward and look capable of perhaps getting another before the break! Tottenham need to re
    • 43'
      Two minutes to go in this first half and the whole dimension of the game has been changed by that Arsenal goal, as the visitors now have something to hold on to in order to claim a great result. You would expect a rejuvenised Spurs to come out after the break after some tutelage by Pochettino, thoug
    • 45'
      Only one minute of added time allocated by the referee so it looks like Spurs won't be able to grab an equaliser before the half-time whistle, even though they have been the better team for the majority of the half.
    • 46'
      We are back under way at White Hart Lane!
    • 47'
      Excellent stuff from Arsenal in the opening stages of this second period as they are controlling possession with short, stabbing passes in an effort to curb any kind of Spurs ascendancy. Very clever from the visitors, who were clearly expecting their opponents to come out after half-time with fire i
    • 49'
      SAVE FROM OSPINA! Walker collects possession a yard in from the right touchline and moves forward stride by stride completely unopposed before attempting to try his luck with a strike on goal. He eventually pulls the trigger with a rasper of a strike which moves all over the place, but the Arsenal k
    • 51'
      One factor that Pochettino will certainly have discussed at the break will be his side's first-half inablity to find a crucial final ball. Spurs have got into some very useful positions in this match, particularly down the wings, but the crossing from Walker and Rose hasn't really been up to a good
    • 53'
      The Spurs fans are giving the referee a piece of their mind now as Wimmer clears the ball at left-back, only to be completely taken out by Welbeck with a late challenge. A free kick isn't awarded, and it is Arsenal who actually get the throw-in, so no wonder they are giving the official some stick!
    • 55'
      COQUELIN SENT OFF FOR ARSENAL! Kane drives down the left wing with pace and is scythed down by the Frenchman, who is already on a yellow card. The referee wastes no time in brandishing the second booking. Utterly idiotic from the Arsenal midfielder!
    • 57'
      WHAT A SAVE FROM OSPINA! The Arsenal goalkeeper has kept his side in the match so far with a string of great saves, and the best of the lot comes from a Kane strike at the back post which looked destined to find the back of the net. The goal-line technology kicks in, and replays show it was INCHES a
    • 59'
      Well, how will Wenger respond to that complete lack of intelligence from Coquelin, who has put his team-mates under massive pressure here by getting himself sent off. With Spurs now having their tails up, will he look at the bench to make an alteration and plug the hole in that midfield?
    • 60'
      G T. Alderweireld Assist Bellerín
    • 60'
      Brave work from Lamela who comes out on top against Gabriel in order to assist Alderweireld.
    • 60'
      GOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLL FOR TOTTENHAM! THE EQUALISER COMES! A corner comes in from the left wing and Lamela recycles back into the danger area for Alderweireld at the back post, who shows tremendous composure to fire a left-footed volley low into the bottom corner! One-one! GAME ON!
    • 62'
      G H. Kane Assist Bellerín
    • 62'
      Brilliant workrate from Alli as he chases a lost cause down the left wing before passing inside for Kane.
    • 62'
      GOOOOOOAAALLLL!! GOOOAAALLL!! GOOOAAALL FOR SPURS! A STUNNER FROM HARRY KANE! Mertescaker fails to deal with a ball near the corner flag and Alli wins possession before laying into the path of his team-mate, who makes his way into a more central area before whipping a screamer into the top right cor
    • 64'
      What a breathless few minutes that was! It looked likely that the Coquelin sending off would have an affect on this game, and hasn't it just. Only a few minutes after he was given his marching orders, Spurs equalised and then took the lead through that fabulous strike from Kane!
    • 66'
      Frustration really starting to show amongst the Arsenal players now as Alexis goes into the book for shoving Lamela basically in to the linesman down the left wing after being given a shove by the Argentine. No point getting involved for the Chilean, and he sees yellow for his trouble.
    • 67'
      SI R. Mason SO Bellerín
    • 67'
      First change of the match from Pochettino here and it is probably a smart one from the Argentine boss as he withdraws Lamela in favour of Mason, who is always full of energy. While being a goal up and a man up, there's no point in taking any chances, really.
    • 69'
      Just over 20 minutes remaining in this highly entertaining North London derby and Arsenal are really running out of time to potentially try and save their season here. A loss today would make it four on the bounce for the Gunners, which hasn't happened since all the way back in October 2002, and wou
    • 71'
      Kane is oozing confidence after scoring that brilliant strike from the left wing now and is getting shots away left, right, and centre. The latest is a decently struck attempt from the right channel, but Ospina does relatively well to see it harmlessly behind for a goal kick.
    • 73'
      Spurs will certainly need to keep their wits about them in these latter stages so better not get any bookings or subsequent redcards. Eric Dier clearly doesn't get the memo, though, and hauls Alexis to the floor to see yellow, which means he'll need to watch any more tackles that go in.
    • 75'
      SI O. Giroud SO Bellerín
    • 75'
      Second change of the match from Arsene Wenger now and it is a positive one as Olivier Giroud makes his way on to the pitch to replace Elneny. The Frenchman has been given 15 minutes to try and save this game for Arsenal! Can he make an impact from the bench?
    • 76'
      G A. Sánchez Assist Bellerín
    • 76'
      Another assist for Bellerin here after some marauding work down the right before picking out Alexis.
    • 77'
      GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL FOR ARSENAL! THE GUNNERS BACK ON TERMS! Giroud makes an instant impact as he cleverly cushions possession into the path of Bellerin, who subsequently finds Alexis! The Chilean gets beyond the Spurs defence before scuffing a bouncing strike into the bottom left corner past
    • 78'
      SI B. Davies SO Bellerín
    • 78'
      Pochettino reacts almost instantly to that Arsenal goal as he adopts to change up his left-back position by withdrawing Danny Rose in favour of Ben Davies, who will certainly add plenty of energy on the left. Arguably a better defender is coming on for Spurs, though, so are the home side looking to
    • 80'
      Wenger is raging in the dugout at the moment and with good reason as the referee fails to award Dier with a second yellow card after CLEARLY hauling Giroud to the floor inside the centre circle to halt an Arsenal counterattack. It was only a few yards away from the official, who awards the free kic
    • 82'
      SI Heung-Min Son SO Bellerín
    • 82'
      Third and final change from the hosts now and it is a positive one from Pochettino, which perhaps signals that Spurs aren't settling for the draw after all. Coming on is attacker, Heung-Min Son, and being withdrawn is midfielder Mousa Dembele. Are we in for a climactic last 10 minutes at White Hart
    • 84'
      On the other hand, Wenger would be absolutely delighted with a point at this time and introduces a defensive midfielder, Mathieu Flamini, in place of central striker, Danny Welbeck. The Gunners definitely looking to shut up shop for the last five minutes plus stoppage time.
    • 85'
      SI M. Flamini SO Bellerín
    • 86'
      Before this match, there was a lot of speculation as to how Ospina would play in place of the highly influential Petr Cech, who misses this match with a calf injury. The Colombian can be very proud of his performance today, and once again keeps Spurs at bay with a diving save to deny Eriksen, who wa
    • 88'
      OHHH ALMOST A HORROR MOMENT FOR GABRIEL! Alli makes his way down the left wing with authority and eventually finds himself outnumbered, deciding to smash a speculative cross into the box. There are no Spurs players in the middle, but they NEARLY get a goal all the same as the former Villarreal man s
    • 90'
      SI J. Campbell SO Bellerín
    • 90'
      Third and final change from Wenger here and it sees Ozil make his way off the pitch to be replaced by Joel Campbell, who was one of Arsenal's better performers in the midweek defeat against Swansea. Four minutes of added time have been signaled by the referee - do we have a winner?!
