It might just be pre-season yet having a series of London derbies is an occasion that is highly anticipated by footballing fans.
Both the sides have already played Chelsea in the round-robin event. Spurs had ended up drawing level to Chelsea in a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge and the Gunners were beaten 2-1 by Thomas Tuchel’s side at the Emirates Stadium last weekend. Both Chelsea and Tottenham have won a game and have drawn a game against each other while the Gunners have faced 2 losses in this pre-season tournament.

The game between Spurs and Arsenal earlier today had nothing to separate the side at halftime. Both the teams had struck the frame of the goal in the first half from Arsenal’s Alexander Lacazette and Tottenham’s Dele Alli.
The deadlock was finally broken in the 79th minute of the fierce pre-season north London derby. Lucas lets the ball cleverly slip into the path of Le Celso who was through on the right. A simple ball in the forward direction run of Tanganga teeing up the South Korean who fires the ball at the back of the net. Spurs go on to win the game by one goal to nil.
