Guendozi shines bright in North London Derby draw

by Koolkola

​The first north London derby of the season ended all square as Arsenal clawed back a two-goal deficit in a fierce clash with Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The attacking trident of Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette looked in ominous form in the early stages. However, it was Spurs who broke the deadlock when Christian Eriksen pounced on a poor save from Bernd Leno and duly tapped home the easiest of chances.

Spuds threatened on the break on numerous occasions as the Arsenal struggled to hold off counter attacks from them. Bernd Leno made several great saves but Spuds eventually doubled the lead.

Granit Xhaka had a wild lunge at Son which brought down the Korean for an undisputable penalty. Harry Kane stepped up and doubled the lead from the spot.

However, the team continued to pile more pressure on the Spuds defense and it eventually paid off before half time. Nicolas Pepe played a delightful ball into the box, before Lacazette danced past the Spuds defense to unleash a fierce shot into the back of the net.

The boys started the second half like they ended the first and continued to pile pressure on the Spuds defense. They levelled the game after Aubameyang guided a beautiful pass from Matteo Guendozi info the net.

We thought we had won it though, as Sokratis got a third from a Sead Kolasinac cross, only for the linesman to get his flag up.

It was a good attacking display marred by individual errors and moment of madness. However, the performance of Matteo Guendozi was particularly a shining light as he bossed the midfield with an impressive display.

The Premier League returns after the international break as the team will take on Watford at Vicarage road.
