The half time score ended with 1-2, with a dominant performance from Tottenham. Tottenham started the second half just as they left the first half and looked liked the more impressive London side.

Guendouzi was the creator of the second goal. He picked up the ball from the defence and after dribbling past a player, he chiped the ball over the Spurs defence just to find a touch of Aubameyang’s feet guiding the ball into the net. It seemed that Arsenal had taken the lead with the momentum flowing towards their side from a Sokratis finish off a Kolasinac cross but later the goal was cancelled by VAR as the pass maker was given offside. It was a thrilling and enthralling derby and after the second half antics from Arsenal, it was fair for both the teams to share a point.
