The Gunners eventually ran out 4-2 winners at the Emirates.

"It's a very big victory", Arsenal manager Unai Emery said. For supporters it is a special match, for us too because we want to give them a special match.

Mkhitaryan certainly wasn't terrible, but he was rather ineffective for Arsenal going forward and his lack of pace was seriously exposed on a number of occasions when his teammates looked to release him on the wing.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang broke the deadlock with a penalty before Eric Dier and Harry Kane gave Spurs the lead heading into half-time.

A Tottenham supporter was arrested for throwing a banana skin onto the field after the Gabon global scored and celebrated in front of away fans.

Fans were left outraged over the banana skin incident. Arsenal then dominated play for most of the first half before Spurs turned around the game with two goals in four minutes for a 2-1 halftime lead. Dier was eventually booked for his goal celebration.

"It was to try to put calm", he said.

When asked whether Ozil had attended the game, he added: "I don't know".

Spiteful scenes marred the north London derby.

Unai Emery's side have been a little disappointing since their 11-game winning streak came to an end last month, being held at home by Wolves, Sporting and Liverpool, and they will find it hard to contain Kane, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Son-Hueng Min.

Manchester United midfielder Fred, 25, who has started only six Premier League games this season, is frustrated by a lack of game time that saw him omitted from the most recent Brazil squad.

The Gunners could be without Alexandre Lacazette though, as BBC Sport understands that the French striker will be monitored ahead of kick-off after missing last week's victory over Bournemouth with a groin injury. "But for now I am already thinking Wednesday in Manchester".

"He (Vertonghen) touched the ball, and it's impossible when you are running like that to the ball and then stop".
