Into the closing stages now and the result seems all but complete in Arsenal's favour. Two minutes pus stoppage time for Tottenham to try to get a result from the match...
84'
RED CARD VERTONGHEN!! The Belgian is sold short on a pass, and lunges to reach the ball before Lacazette, he does so, but catches the Frenchman with the follow through and receives his marking orders! Tottenham down to 10 men and two goals down. Surely the match is beyond them now?

75'
GOOOAAAALLL ARSENAL!!! 3-2!! Another twist in the tale, Frenchman Lacazette unleashes a curling effort from outside the box, and thanks to a deflection off Dier, it evades Lloris to sneak inside the far post! The hosts have the lead once more!!

The hosts are pushing for the lead once more here!
56'
GGOOOAAAALLLL ARSENAL!!!! 2-2!!!! A slick counter attack finds Aubameyang on the edge of the area, and the forward curls a first time effort into the bottom corner! WHAT A STRIKE!! All square once more!

45'
HT- ARSENAL 1-2 TOTTENHAM Annnnd.... breathe! What a first half of action and talking points at the Emirates! Arsenal were excellent and deserved to go ahead. But a quick fire double , including a dubious penalty, ensured that Tottenham would take the lead heading into the interval. Let's hope for more of the same in the second half!

32'
PENALTY SPURS! INCREDIBLE! Son runs through on goal and Holding slides in to stop him cutting back into the box. Son goes down and Mike Dean points to the spot!
31'
A touchline fracas has just broken out in the aftermath of the goal. Dier shushes the home fans which provokes an angry reaction from the Arsenal substitutes on the touchline. Both benches, including managers and technical staff get involved in the scuffle. Referee Mike Dean opts not to caution any players, but demands the madness stop immediately, which it does.
30'
GOOOAALLLL TOTTENHAM!!! 1-1!! Eriksen whips a killer cross into the near post and Eric Dier heads home! Leno does his best to keep the ball out at his near post, but can only help it into the back of the net! The scores are level!

Tottenham pushing for an equaliser now. They've made a number of breaks towards the Arsenal box, but have been unable to find that killer pass to create the clear chance that they're craving.
21'
Tottenham are starting to carve openings now, Sissoko broke through the lines but was flagged for offside and Eriksen was close to being 1 on 1 with Leno, but for an excellent sliding challenge from Sokratis. The visitors look like they're growing in confidence here...
18'
CHANCE(S) ARSENAL! A series of great chances for their second of the game. First Iwobi takes aim at goal but his shot is blocked by a combination of Lloris and Vetonghen, then, Bellerin fires a volley back across goal which is also cleared off the line! Arsenal pushing for another goal at the Emirates!
16'
WOW. a frantic first quarter of an hour in this game, as Arsenal have very much taken the ascendancy in this North London derby. Tottenham look shell shocked. Pochettino's side are just about starting to get into the match, but they seem unable to retain any substantial period of possession, and as such, have been unable to create any problems for their hosts' rearguard.
13'
CHANCE ARSENAL! The hosts break from the Tottenham corner and Aubameyang has the chance to score his second from six yards out. Sadly the forward gets his feet tangled and the Tottenham defence scramble to clear the danger! Arsenal are looking very dangerous so far this afternoon.
12'
CHANCE SPURS! Son fires a shot at the near post, but Leno stands up to the effort well and parries for the first corner of the game.
10'
GOOOOAAALLLL ARSENAL!! 1-0! Aubameyang converts the spot kick and the hosts are ahead within 10 minutes of kick off. It must be said that, on the balance of play so far, Arsenal are very much deserving of the lead.
9'
PENALTY ARSENAL!!! Vertonghen handball gives the hosts a chance to take an early lead.
8'
WIDE FREE KICK FOR ARSENAL- Aurier trips Aubameyang near the corner flag.
5'
A very strong start from the hosts, as they have been keen to press the 'Spurs' midfield in possession and break at speed at any given opportunity. Tottenham are yet to get a foothold in the game so far. It seems as Arsenal have come out with a point to prove this afternoon.
1'
CHANCE ARSENAL! An early breakaway leads to a great ball into the box from Bellerin, but the header from Aubameyang is just over the bar! Nearly a rapid start from the hosts there!
1'

Interesting team selections from both managers there, with various changes from previous starting XI's. Arsenal remain without Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette, but he has recovered in time to make the bench. Meanwhile Tottenham recall young defender Juan Foyth, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min, after the three were rested or ineligible for the midweek triumph against Inter Milan.

And now for the visitors, Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C); Aurier, Foyth, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Kane.
