Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino’s arrogant Arsenal comments come back to bite him

Arsenal moved above neighbours Tottenham and into the Premier League's top four after winning an enthralling north London derby that was overshadowed by trouble in the stands.

Brazilian defender Eder Militao, who is now on the books of Porto, is subject of increasing interest from a number of Premier League clubs, with Chelsea, Everton and Manchester United all keen, the Mail says.

On came Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey at the interval and the changes helped to turn the contest again.

Arsenal originally took the lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before Eric Dier and Harry Kane put Spurs in front.

That Arsenal finish strongly, overwhelming often exhausted opponents, is undeniable.

"Now I'm thinking about the match on Wednesday in Manchester", Emery said when asked whether this was his most significant win so far.

Emery has a strong bench to use, and bringing on players of the calibre of Lacazette and Ramsey is a luxury few teams even among the big six have. "But let's not forget, last week they were winning against Chelsea also, Tottenham, with a very big match and today they are losing against us".

Television replays showed a banana skin present on the pitch as Arsenal celebrated their opening goal, scored by Gabon worldwide Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the penalty spot.

A miserable day for Tottenham was confounded by an 85th-minute red card awarded to Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen. They have "won" 11 of those second halves.

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour on Monday lauded the incredible quality and commitment Aaron Ramsey brings to the table while he downplayed Mesut Ozil's influence on the team saying he would pick the Welshman over the World Cup victor any day.

The manager had to deny claims of a falling out when Ozil sat out a win over West Ham in August, citing illness.

"These were the reasons [I made the half-time substitutions]".

"Aaron has been there a long time, he's been there for ten years, so you've got to look that as well".
