Arsenal fight back to draw 2-2 with Spurs at the Emirates

Arsenal put up a superb second half performance to complete a comeback against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday.

The North London Derby, played at the Emirates Stadium, saw Sours squander a two-goal lead as the Gunners drew level 2-2 to earn a point from the game.

Spurs looked to be in complete control when Christian Eriksen pounced in the 10th minute to put them ahead.

Son Heung-min was senselessly hacked down in the area by Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka to allow Harry Kane to score through a penalty.
