Tottenham rise to Arsenal’s defense and are one point behind their arch-rival after Harry Kane and his companions. On Thursday, he won the London derby 3-0 at Tottenham Hotspur.
Kane scored two of the home side’s goals, while Heung-Min Son got the honor of scoring the last goal in the second half.
Arsenal sent off
Rob Holding showed early in the match that his ignition level was more than high, and it was Tottenham star Heung-Min Son who got away with it.
After receiving his first yellow card after 26 minutes, the Arsenal goalkeeper was more than aggressive again after just eight minutes.
Son chased after Eric Dier’s long pass, when Holding hit him directly and picked up his second yellow card that day.
TV 2’s expert commentator, Jesper Mathisen, wasn’t kind enough to mention the Arsenal stopper.
– It is completely incomprehensible how Hold can behave in this way when he has a yellow card. So one hour left to play. It is almost impossible to believe. Terrible match and slag in the stock exchange, says Matissen during the match.
Matthew Upson was not impressed with Matthew Upson, the former Arsenal and West Ham goalkeeper.
Rob Holding has left his team in a lot of trouble. He is not focused on the ball, he is completely focused on Son. You could say he’s trying to submit to his son’s flogging, but it’s gone in the opposite direction. The son came under his skin, Upson says on the BBC.
Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard was the first to go to referee Paul Tierney after pulling the red card out of his pocket, but the Norwegian couldn’t have done anything, of course.
By then Harry Kane had already sent Spurs into the lead on penalties after Cedric Soares hit hard at the back of Son when he was in position to get on target.
After 37 minutes, Tottenham doubled their lead against Arsenal’s ten men. Son hit a corner from the right, Rodrigo Bentancur hit the back post as Kane headed back 2-0.
At the start of the second half, Son himself took the honor of scoring third place for Spurs. Gabriel only got one toe on the ball in a duel with Kane, and when the ball ended right in the legs of his number seven at Spurs, the South Korean was unhurt to pray.
Even with the loss to Tottenham, it is Arsenal who takes the leadership seat in the battle for the important fourth place, which gives next season’s Champions League matches.
Arsenal are currently one point ahead of Tottenham when the two London teams have two matches to play.
Tottenham owns Burnley and Norwich again, while Arsenal face Newcastle and Everton in their last two matches.
