Spurs fight back for win at Gunners

Published Add your comment

Tottenham completed one of the most amazing comebacks in north London derby history to end their 17-year wait for a win at Arsenal and deny their arch-rivals top spot in the Barclays Premier League with a 3-2 triumph.

The Gunners romped to a 2-0 half-time lead thanks to brilliant goals from Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh as William Gallas' return to the Emirates Stadium looked set to end in defeat.

But Gallas had the last laugh as Gareth Bale pulled a goal back and Cesc Fabregas inexplicably handled Rafael van der Vaart's free-kick to allow the Dutchman to level from the penalty spot before Younes Kaboul headed home a dramatic winner five minutes from time.
