The first half was basically two teams battling it out to prove who had the worse defence and Arsenal took that crown but only just.
Tottenham was so vulnerable down the flanks that it was mystifying why Arsenal did not take advantage, Sanchez is clearly not fit for purpose as a right-back and Danny Rose was so bad that he would not even get in the Arsenal team and yet, our wide players just did not get into those areas to cause any damage.
A poor save from Leno allowed Eriksen to open for Spurs though Sokratis attempt at heading the ball out further up the field was what? Because I don’t know either.
Obviously Xhaka was going to mess up and he sent a clear message to Luiz that he is the true king of giving away penalties and of course Kane stepped up and buried the ball.
But even at 2-0 down, I had a feeling that Arsenal was not done, not with that horrendous Tottenham defence and so it proved as Lacazette pulled one back just before the half time whistle. It was a good finish but it came about because Spurs just could not clear the ball.
The second half started in predictable fashion with Arsenal dominating and Tottenham looking to counter at every opportunity.
The breakthrough for Arsenal came in the 70th minute through Aubameyang who was fed a sublime pass that cut through the Spurs defence.
From that point onwards there was always going to be one winner and it was going to be Arsenal, or so you would have thought.
VAR obviously came to Tottenham’s rescue in the 80th minute but in all fairness, it was a correct call.
Tottenham dug in and Arsenal just could not find that final killer ball and it seemed that they ran out of ideas as the game came to a close.
2-2 was unjust on Arsenal in my opinion but when you consider they were 2-0 down to end the game with a draw I suppose is something.
