(Watch Highlights) Arsenal claim victory over Tottenham after comeback in North London derby

Alexandre Lacazette’s second-half penalty helped Arsenal earn a comeback victory over Tottenham Hotspur which moves them four points behind their north London rivals.

Erik Lamela’s world class rabona goal put Spurs ahead before Martin Odegaard equalised just before half time.

Arsenal began brightly, with Emile Smith Rowe firing against the crossbar from 25 yards.

Spurs were dealt a blow when Son Heung-min was forced off with an injury but his replacement Lamela produced a stunning “rabona” into the bottom-right corner on 33 minutes.

Cedric Soares shot against a post for Arsenal before Martin Odegaard’s deflected strike, his first Premier League goal, made the score 1-1 on the stroke of half-time.

Arsenal went in front on 64 minutes, with Lacazette converting a penalty after he was fouled by Davinson Sanchez.

Spurs were reduced to 10 men in the 76th minute when Lamela went from hero to villain with two quickfire yellow cards to get himself sent off.

The first was a slide tackle on Thomas Partey and the second was for palming Kieran Tierney in the face.

Harry Kane hit the post with a free-kick at the death but Arsenal held firm.
