#EPL: Arsenal sting Tottenham in North London derby

Thomas Rosicky scored the only goal of the game as Arsenal defeated Tottenham 1-0 in the North London derby at White Hart Lane.

Arsenal took the lead two minutes into the derby, when Rosicky smashed home a superb strike, after good work from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The lead was held on to until half-time.

The second half started Tottenham forwards firing all cylinders at Arsenal, but resilient defending from  Mertesacker and Koncielny kept the home team locked out. 

Nacer Chadli came close to scoring for Tottenham after a goalkeeping mess from Wojciech Szczesny, but Koncielny was in goal to clear off with a block.  

Arsenal ran away winners of the game compounding more misery on Tim Sherwood's men.

It is the first time Arsenal will win at White Hart Lane since 2007.
