          Arsenal saw off Tottenham in one of the games of the season with a pulsating 4-2 victory on Super Sunday at the Emirates.

          Aubameyang had Arsenal in front within 10 minutes from the penalty spot after Jan Vertonghen had handled in the area. That led to a period of dominance from the hosts who should have extended their lead, but Spurs fought back thanks to two quickfire goals including a penalty of their own.

          Eric Dier pulled Tottenham level on 30 minutes with a glancing header at the near post from a Christian Eriksen free kick. Harry Kane put the visitors ahead from the spot after Rob Holding fouled Son Heung-Min in the 34th minute, but Arsenal were level after the break through Aubameyang's fine curling effort from the edge of the box (56).

          Sub Alexandre Lacazette put Arsenal 3-2 ahead with 15 minutes remaining, squeezing a shot into the corner from 20 yards via a deflection, and they added a fourth two minutes later through Lucas Torreira after he raced through on goal at an angle.

          Unai Emery: “I think our process and today our supporters here, the atmosphere was very good and they push a lot for us. In a difficult first-half moment we keep the calm, and we said in the dressing room that we had good moments in the first half. It's the reason every match is an important three points. For the supporters it is a special match, and for us to also because we want to give them a special match. I think they connected with the supporters today.”

          Mauricio Pochettino: “A very competitive game, tough for us because we were talking before that the fixture, after Chelsea and then Inter Milan, it didn't help with the fixture for us. But I think the team was very competitive, Arsenal was competitive with a lot of energy. The game was even until 2-2, when we conceded the third goal for the team it was so tough to come back, to try to be in the game.”
