SillySeason take a look back at some classic Arsenal/Tottenham Hotspur matches at the Emirates
This weekend sees Arsenal host their long-running local-rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium, so SillySeason thought it would be a great idea to look back at some memorable matches played out between the two.
Obviously there have been some classic North London Derbies at Highbury and also at White Hart Lane, but today we are going to solely focus on ones that were played at the Emirates Stadium.
So without further ado, here are our Top-Five North London Derbies from the Emirates Stadium.
5) Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham Hotspur – December 2006
Back in 2006, Tottenham Hotspur absolutely collapsed in the North London Derby just before half-time.
Robin van Persie gave the hosts the lead on the 42nd mark, before Cesc Fabregas doubled the lead exactly one-minute later after stealing the ball off Spurs straight from kick-off.
It was a nightmare period for Tottenham as they all-but lost the game in the space of 60-seconds and this is why this derby is nicknamed ‘The One-Minute Derby.’
A second-half strike from Van Persie made it 3-0 to Arsenal on the hour mark and it gave the Gunners the bragging rights and all three points.
