FT: And breathe…

TOTTENHAM 1-1 ARSENAL | RED CARD

94: Unbelievable stuff! Anthony Taylor shows his first red card of the season to Arsenal substitute Lucas Torreira. The midfielder flies in with his studs up on Danny Rose and the Uruguayan is given his marching orders.

93: Wembley is going berserk as we enter the final two minutes of stoppage time.

91: Five minutes added time.
TOTTENHAM 1-1 ARSENAL | MISSED PENALTY

90: Saved! It’s a truly poor penalty from substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He strikes it at a nice height for Hugo Lloris to parry away.

Iwobi drives the ball back into the six-yard box and Aubameyang looks to have a tap-in until Jan Vertonghen turns it behind for a corner. He came outta nowhere!

PENALTY TO ARSENAL

89: Davinson Sanchez can’t help but have a nibble when the wrong side of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang inside the penalty area. It’s the finest of touches but the striker goes down and Anthony Taylor awards the penalty.

88: Where’s this last chance coming from? It could easily go either way but we haven’t had any chances. Jan Vertonghen nips beyond Henrikh Mkhitaryan before curling a cross into the penalty area. Laurent Koscielny clears, as he’s done all afternoon.

85: Arsenal are the only side yet to register an away clean sheet in the Premier League this season.

83: Fernando Llorente booked for a clumsy challenge on Laurent Koscielny.

82: I’ll be honest – this has been rubbish over the last five minutes. Neither side is capable of keeping the ball for more than a few passes.

80: Harry Kane has now scored four Premier League penalties against Arsenal; only Alan Shearer against Everton (7) and Southampton (5), and Steven Gerrard against Aston Villa (5) have more against a single opponent in competition history.

79: Lots of huffing and puffing from both sides but we’ve yet to see another chance since Harry Kane’s penalty.

77: It was lost in the penalty mayhem but Mesut Ozil came on for Aaron Ramsey in the 72nd-minute. Spurs make another change too with Fernando Llorente replacing Son.

75: “Arsenal have been cheated, Kane clearly offside, only way they were going to get in the match as dreadful is being very kind to Spurs today,” says Thomas on Twitter. Quite rightly livid about that decision.

74: Was there ever any doubt? Harry Kane sends Bernd Leno the wrong way and Spurs are on level terms.

Ready for a grandstand finish?

PENALTY TO TOTTENHAM

73: Controversial! Harry Kane is clearly barged over by Mustafi in the box – but the Spurs talisman was clearly offside.

If there was VAR Kane would have been seen as offside earlier on and the foul would have been null and void
70: Big decision! Erik Lamela’s cross completely bamboozles Henrikh Mkhitaryan and falls to Danny Rose at the far post. The full-back fluffs his first touch and catches Bernd Leno in the chest with both feet facing up.

Red card? Tough one. Rose HAD to go for it and clearly didn’t intend to connect with the goalkeeper. No punishment.

68: Arsenal have foiled everything that Spurs have to offer over the last ten minutes. Tottenham are getting into the final third before running out of ideas and passing backwards.

Lamela tries one from distance but Leno has to covered.

65: Erik Lamela is booked just minutes after coming on for a foul on Granit Xhaka. He loves a yellow card does the Argentine.
63: Whisper this… but Arsenal are looking comfortable. Sokratis and Koscielny are looking excellent at the back while Tottenham’s final ball has largely been poor.

60: Silly booking from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who tugs back Harry Kane on the halfway line. Totally unnecessary because Sokratis had it covered.

Erik Lamela arrives for Spurs, Victor Wanyama heads off.

58: 21 months since Toby Alderweireld last scored for Spurs… he hasn’t come much closer to breaking that duck when hammering a poor Arsenal clearance into the side-netting.

Unai Emery makes a second change with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on for Alexandre Lacazette.

56: What?! Alexandre Lacazette has missed his second sitter of the afternoon. Great enterprising football from Arsenal sees Nacho Monreal lay the ball on a plate for the Frenchman, who skews wide from eight yards.
TOTTENHAM 0-1 ARSENAL

54: Tottenham have started this half on front-foot but that killer pass in the final third still alludes them.

51: Terrible! Harry Kane does so well to escape the attentions of three Arsenal players before scooping the ball out wide. Trippier collects before blazing a cross straight out of play. Moans and groans from the frustrated home supporters.

48: Quite strange that Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t made a change. The three centre-backs seem a bit unnecessary to mark lone striker Alexandre Lacazette.

TOTTENHAM 0-1 ARSENAL

45: And we’re back underway at Wembley.

Remember, if the result stays the same then Arsenal will move to within one point of their north London neighbours.

Lucas Torreira on for Metteo Guendouzi
TOTTENHAM 0-1 ARSENAL

HT: Mauricio Pochettino takes his jacket off in frustration as he walks down the tunnel. Aaron Ramsey’s goal from a clinical counter-attack is the difference at the break.

45: Save! Woooooow – MASSIVE save from Bernd Leno just before the break. Son starts the move with a pin-point pass over to Kieran Trippier. He cuts it back for Harry Kane, who floats a cross over to Christian Eriksen.

The Dane volleys from close range and Leno makes a terrific reflex save and manages to jump back to his feet to deny Moussa Sissoko’s drilled rebound. Exquisite.

44: Save! Alex Iwobi is given the freedom of the left touchline and very nearly makes Spurs pay. He cuts inside and forces a full-stretch save from Hugo Loris, who paws it away.

43: Referee Anthony Taylor gets in the way and deflects the ball back to Arsenal. The visitors enjoyed that one.

40: End-to-end stuff now as Spurs counter from an Arsenal free-kick. Sissoko blisters down the right flank before slipping it over to Trippier. His low, sweeping cross is cleared before Harry Kane could convert.
38: Bernd Leno is warned about wasting time. That may have something to do with Spurs enjoying 68 percent possession and piling on the pressure. Still no shots on target from Mauricio Pochettino’s side…

Tottenham vs Arsenal: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from Wembley

35: Cracking stuff from Son and Rose. A neat one-two sees the attacker slip behind Mustafi before seeing his snapshot deflected wide by Sokratis. The corner is hoofed into orbit.

33: Sustained pressure from Tottenham ends with Christian Eriksen drilling wide from an acute angle. Did you know that he’s never scored in a north London derby?!

30: We’ve just ticked past the half-hour mark with Arsenal ahead through Ramsey’s opener. Spurs dominating possession but their crazy high line is giving Arsenal joy on the counter.

28: Better from Spurs now. Son wriggles his way past a couple of defenders before Nacho Monreal nicks the ball of his toes.

25: Spicy now! Tackles flying in all over the place with Mustafi cleaning out Rose on the left touchline. Referee Anthony Taylor, who is the only Premier League referee NOT to have dishes out a red card this season, just gives him a ticking off.

Tottenham vs Arsenal: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from Wembley

23: GOALLLFFFSIDE! Tottenham think they are level when Harry Kane unleashes a bullet header from a Kieran Trippier free-kick. Celebrations are cut short when the linesman raises his flag. Correct decision.

20: No real response from Tottenham, who are struggling to piece anything together. They are just lacking a spark recently. Perhaps one could open the floodgates.
17: Aaron Ramsey has been directly involved in three of Arsenal’s last four Premier League goals against Tottenham (1 goal, 2 assists).

16: Hey, Juventus fans… that’s what £400,000 a week gets you.

TOTTENHAM 0-1 ARSENAL | RAMSEY

15: Arsenal draw first blood in the north London derby! Don’t ask me what Tottenham were thinking – because I have no idea.

Davinson Sanchez gifts the ball to Alexandre Lacazette on the halfway line and the rest is history. The Frenchman feeds Aaron Ramsey, who is in acres of space.

He sits Hugo Loris down with a dummy before sliding the ball into an empty net. Cue everyone searching “Aaron Ramsey curse,” online…

13: Concern for Spurs as Kane goes down clutching his leg when Granit Xhaka flies in from behind – raking down the England international’s calf. Referee Anthony Taylor ignores it.

Tottenham vs Arsenal: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from Wembley

And Mr Kane is back on his feet.
10: “JUST HIT IT,” says the keen Arsenal fan sitting next to me. He was livid with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who was allowed to drive to the edge of the penalty area before attempting a reverse pass. Should have leathered it.

8: Steve McManaman says he’ll be very surprised if Arsenal keep a clean sheet today. He did also predict that Liverpool would knock Bayern Munich for six the other week…

All action in the middle of the park as a frantic NLD continues. Arsenal have defended well but keep losing possession in midfield – they are just handing the ball back to Spurs on the halfway line.

5: Spurs respond with an opportunity of their own as Kieran Trippier, proud new owner of a classic own goal, fizzes a cross into the penalty area that Koscielny clears before Harry Kane could apply the finish
3: Huge chance! Alexandre Lacazette should have opened the scoring inside three minutes.

Alex Iwobi drives inside and sees his shot deflected over the Spurs defence and straight to Lacazette. He spins and scuffs the ball across the face of goal. You can almost here every Arsenal fan saying: “Aubameyang would have scored that…”

TOTTENHAM 0-0 ARSENAL

1: I really don’t understand what Unai Emery has done with his starting XI today. Has he over-thought this? The new tinker man perhaps…

Shkodran Mustafi does indeed start at right back with Henrikh Mkhitaryan protecting him. Can’t see that going well. Anyway, we’re underway!

Leno is not responsible for our defeat – Unai Emery

Published

By

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has refused to blame goalkeeper Bernd Leno, for their 3-1 defeat at Wolves on Wednesday night.

Ruben Neves scored a stunning free-kick to put the hosts ahead, with Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota also on target before half-time.

Leno misjudged Jonny Castro Otto’s cross to allow Doherty to nod home, then he looked to be beaten too easily by Jota, leaving Arsenal with a mountain to climb.

Although the Gunners scored a late consolation through Sokratis Papastathopoulos, their Champions League qualification hopes have been dented by back-to-back Premier League defeats.

Emery, however, chose not to point the finger of blame at Leno, after Arsenal fell to their heaviest Premier League defeat against a newly promoted team since 1994.

“I don’t want to speak about individuals. We need to continue together and not look at one player, defensive or attacking.

“We need to think to recover our confidence, our good moment. When we were in the worse moments we can recover to take possibilities like we have now.

“In the last two matches we lost good options but the last three matches we are going to play we will play our possibilities,” Emery told a news conference after the game.

Arsenal have lost six of their past 10 Premier League games away from home and Emery conceded he was frustrated by his team’s latest poor performance on the road.

“I usually am very critical of myself. I am angry with myself when we didn’t do the game plan I wanted.

“My idea, my style is to look in front and find the solution, not who is the player who is playing worse or not doing what we spoke of before.

“First I think of the solution. That is to think about Sunday and take the possibility to come back with our best performance to take the three points.

“When we win, we win together and when we lose, we lose together. In general I think we have possibilities to be in the top four.

“We lost the chance to have it in our hands but we will continue and take the opportunity on Sunday,” Emery added.

Why Arsenal lost to Wolves – Unai Emery

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has admitted his team did not create enough chances, as they lost 3-1 to Wolves on Wednesday night.

The Gunners’ top-four ambitions took a dent at the Molineux, as they suffered a second successive defeat in the Premier League.

Ruben Neves, Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota all scored in the first half, before Sokratis grabbed a consolation goal after the break.

“We can be frustrated but the Premier League is about being consistent over 38 matches.

“We knew before the match that it was going to be difficult because all season Wolverhampton are feeling strong, defensively they are a good team and offensively they have very fast players. Their organisation was very good and to break this was going to be difficult.

“In the first 25 minutes we started very well, controlled the possession but did not have many chances to score,” Emery told BBC Sport.
