Tottenham 2 - 3 Arsenal…

It was odd watching the north London derby from 4,200 miles away. But with a big telly, and the roar of the away fans it felt like I was there. 

The result was a relief, the Gunners were in danger of throwing away a 3-0 half-time advantage in the most unlikely fashion but held of for a win that kept us top of the table with three games left.  

It had started well, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s own goal and Kai Havertz’s header bookending Bukayo Saka’s smooth finish on the counter. 

Not wishing to make life easy for ourselves, our keeper David Raya’s dreadful clearance then gifted Cristian Romero a goal. 

There was then a nerve-shredding finish after Heung-min Son scored from the spot three minutes from the end of normal time.

Luckily the boys held on. 

Plenty of drama in this north London derby and plenty more drama to come as the Premier League season reaches its climax.  

Happy St Totteringham’s Day everyone!

Onward and upward my friends.
