Arsenal beat Tottenham in the NLD
Arsenal claimed local bragging rights on Saturday as they beat Tottenham in the north London derby.
The win means that Arsenal are just one point behind Spurs in the Premier League.
The damage was done in the first half. Shkodran Mustafi headed Arsenal in front from a Mesut Ozil free-kick, while Alexis Sanchez doubled the advantage after good work from Alexandre Lacazette.
Tottenham never looked capable of coming back into the game after that.
Gary Neville analysis
After the match Gary Neville analysed the game for Sky Sports.
Neville expressed his pre-game belief that he didn’t expect Arsenal to lose the game, however he was also shocked by the manner of the Arsenal performance.
When it came to understanding how the Gunners did it, Neville picked on Arsene Wenger’s front three: Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Lacazette.
Ozil was named as Neville’s man of the match, while he had high praise for all three.
That front three won the game.
When the best players in the team are setting the tone, are working hard are making challenges, you follows.
They are leaders. They’re leaders by their price tags, reputations and skill. They’ve not always been leaders by their work ethic and attitude.
