Tottenham Hotspur surrendered a 2-1 lead in the North London derby to lose 4-2 against Arsenal. The Gunners did extremely well and we seemed to be missing a gear at the Emirates.
The day didn’t start well, with Jan Vertonghen handling the ball in the 10th minute. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made no mistake from the spot.
Eric Dier headed the equaliser from a free-kick in the 30th minute, which led to a fight on the touchline. Son Heung-min won a penalty before Harry Kane smashed it in to give us the lead in the 34th minute.
Arsenal fought back with goals from Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira in a great second half for them. Vertonghen was sent off in the 85th minute to round off a horrible day.
The loss puts us eight points behind leaders Manchester City but more importantly, it pushed Arsenal into the top four ahead of us on goal difference.
Our next game is against Southampton on Wednesday night, and suffice to say many fans were upset with the result against our bitter rivals.
Better team won. No excuses. We were poor.

To not play Toby is the absolute worst decision away. Jan should have been taken off during the break. We were really beaten well.

Three games in a week came back to bite us against a well-rested Arsenal. Tough one to watch as we were 2nd best for most of the game. Rest and recover and prepare to go again. Put this one behind us. Bring on Wednesday.

Not playing Tobyv Alderweireld, our best defender at the club in one of the biggest games of the season looks a good decision right? yeah?

Worst perfomers today Aurier, Vertonghen and Foyth.
