Arsenal stormed to a superb 4-2 win over Tottenham this afternoon in the North London Derby in what was an incredibly aggressive, dynamic and thrilling game to watch.
Unlike Arsenal of late, The Gunners made a quick start and were all over Tottenham in the first 15 minutes. Arsenal were rewarded for their early dominance as they earned a penalty after Jan Vertognhen handballed in his own box.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang put the penalty away to give Arsenal the lead and but for some poor finishing in the final third, Arsenal could’ve practically won the game in the first-half.
There were a lot of superb performers on the day but arguably the best of the lot was star striker, Aubameyang who scored two goals and probably put in his best performance in an Arsenal shirt.
Ever since joining Arsenal last January, Aubameyang has proven to be a world-class striker. Known for his electric pace, the 29-year-old has hit the ground running for Arsenal and scored 10 goals in 14 games for the club. So far this season he’s scored 10 and looks as though he’s set to score at least 20 this season.
Against Tottenham, he was a constant threat and with his pace in behind, Arsenal always had the ability to play a ball in behind Tottenham’s defence knowing that he’d be on to it.
He may not have many years left at the top level but as of right now, Arsenal have a world-class player and one that gives the ability to beat any side.
