Arsenal Lead Premier League After Beating Tottenham 2-3

Arsenal beat Tottenham 3-2 to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League in a frantic north London derby today Sunday.

Pierre Emile Hojbjerg’s own goal put the Gunners ahead before Saka put the visitors two up.

Kai Havertz then rose above all to make it three.

Christian Romero and Heung-min Son then pulled goals back for the home side.

Arsenal’s 3-2 victory at Tottenham has seen them remain at the top of the Premier League table.

And the Gunners are now four points ahead of Manchester City, who have two games in hand.

Spurs, on the other hand, are fifth with two games in hand and seven points separating them from fourth-placed Aston Villa.

Pierre Emile Hojbjerg’s own goal put the Gunners ahead before Saka put the visitors two up. Kai Havertz rose above all to now make it three.

Christian Romero pulled one back for the home side, however.

Tottenham faced a thrashing after going 3-0 down by half-time and then convinced everyone they could do the unthinkable by picking up a dramatic draw against rivals Arsenal.

But at the end, the Gunners held on and picked up probably their biggest victory that could lead them to their first Premier League title in 20 years.

The entertaining derby started with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg failing to clear the ball and instead heading a corner-kick by Bukayo Saka to the back of his own net after just 15 minutes.

Spurs thought they equalised with Micky van de Ven but the centre-back was caught just inches offside by VAR even though Gabriel Magalhaes appeared to be marking him.

Then the hosts called for a penalty when James Maddison was brought down inside Arsenal’s box.

That was when the visitors produced a lethal counter-attack with Kai Havertz who found Saka with a brilliant long ball and the England international got a silky touch before beating Guglielmo Vicario with a brilliant finish on 27 minutes.

Things got even worse for Ange Postecoglou’s side as they lost Timo Werner to an injury that came after another penalty shout as it seemed like the Germany international was clipped inside the area.

Tottenham conceded a third by Havertz who picked up a corner-kick by Declan Rice and beat Vicario with a thunderous header in the 38th minute.

Second half was a completely different affair as Cristian Romero put his team back in the game after a horrendous howler by David Raya as he gifted the ball to the defender who finished with ease on 64 minutes.

The Son Heing-min beat Raya from the penalty spot three minutes before full-time after Declan Rice fouled Ben Davies inside the area.

However, Tottenham couldn’t complete their comeback with Arsenal proving why they have the best defence in the league.
