Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to help Arsenal to a thrilling 4-2 derby win over Tottenham at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The visitors took the lead thanks to a Harry Kane penalty, but Arsenal levelled the scores after the break with a second by Aubameyang.

Spurs could not hold on for a seventh win in a row, however, conceding to goals from Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira in the final 35 minutes to slip down to fifth place on goal difference.

"At the moment, Tottenham is better than us in the table and better than us past year but in history Arsenal is better at other moments that Tottenham".

Ramsey, who was eventually a second-half substitute, was fuming and riled by first Dier, and then Alli's, antics.

Torreira's first for the club followed three minutes later when he slotted past Lloris and celebrated with gusto.

A bad day for the Lilywhites got even worse late on when Jan Vertonghen was dismissed for two bookable offences in a match that had a bit of everything.

"Sevilla vs. Betis is with the passion because they are two teams with very big and passionate supporters and here in England I think I am going to live Sunday the first derby and think it is similar with the passion".

The result means Arsenal leapfrog their rivals Spurs into fourth in the Premier League table, eight points off leaders Manchester City. If the balance of power had been shifting in north London recent seasons, this game showed there is little to split the teams.

Tottenham, winners on just one of their last 25 top-flight trips to this ground ahead of this game, also had chances of their own as Son blasted at Leno following an error from Hector Bellerin.

- Vertonghen's red card was Spurs' sixth in the Premier League against Arsenal - more than they've had against any other side in the competition.
