Oooh, wow, what a back heel by Aaron Ramsey! 1-0 Arsenal over Spurs

Halftime = Wenger should have taken off Coquelin. Can't trust Coquelin to play that long on a yellow card. He makes too many rash tackles. I think Wenger has to take part of the blame of Coquelin getting sent off early in the 2nd half.

Beautiful goal by Harry Kane to put Tottenham up 2-1. Two quick goals. A scrappy goal from a corner. Then a beauty from Kane as he curls it around into the far corner from the edge of the box on the left side. Absolutely stunning. Even better goal than Ramsey's one.

Lamela takes nice corners. Lovely height and speed on the ball.

Arsenal need another attacker on the pitch. Gotta take risks now. Switch to 3 at the back and 3-4-2. Take off Ozil as well. Need workers on the pitch when you are a man down.

I hate that sub taking off Elneny for Giroud. Should have been Ozil. Bad balance now.

2-2 Arsenal goal! Alexis Sanchez off a lovely through ball by Bellerin.

Wasteful by Sanchez. Could have gotten the match winner there. Welbeck has done great.

Oh my goodness - Gabriel! Lucky boy.

Referee has been very lenient. Could have been another 2-3 sending offs today.

If we can't win, we drag you along with us (sorry Rondo2287).

I'd take the draw. The dumb tackle by Coq could was very costly, and I'm surprised that we pull an equalizer. That was just dumb. Bad defending all out for Arsenal the last 3 games are what's killing them. They got away with it today, but if this is the core of defenders moving forward, Wenger will never win the title again.

Hopefully this is a sign that Alexis gets his momentum back. That boy is due.

Also, what does this say for the Spurs and their title hopes? Failing to grab three points after getting the momentum the entire game and with the opponent 1 man down, still some work to do.

That almost gave me a heart attack. And yeah, that Bellerin tackle in the end should have been a send off, referee very nice for this intense match.

This sums up the frustration for Arsenal.

They both found their level, over 10 points behind the league champs.  Hardly anything to get excited about, unless, of course, you're an Arsenal supporter!

Happy to see Arsenal finish above Spurs. I don't enjoy that Spurs team. Terrific organizationally and defensively but only so-so going forward. I much prefer the football that Arsene Wenger has his team playing at Arsenal.
