Subdued and dominated for much of the last twenty years, Tottenham Hotspur finally managed to rise above the Arsenal footballing monopoly in North London with stupendous 2-0 victory over Arsenal in the latest North London derby.
With Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino stating that his side had bigger ambitions than merely finishing above Arsenal ahead of the match, Spurs put in a very impressive performance as they comfortably ran out 2-0 winners against Arsenal. The result not only guaranteed Tottenham a first league finish above Arsenal for the first time in twenty years but also signaled a power shift in North London that has long been coming.
Spurs midfielder Son Heung-Min was the pick of the players in the historic Spurs win with the South Korean star putting in another fabulous performance of harrying and bamboozling the Arsenal defence throughout the match. The midfielder’s superb dribbling and distribution proved integral to the team’s success as Spurs thoroughly stamped their authority in the match.
In a moment truly encapsulating Spurs dominance over Arsenal, the former Leverkusen player was seen toying around with Arsenal’s best player Alexis Sanchez in the second half. Having almost zero regard for Sanchez, Son was seen audaciously mugging the Chilean.
The perfect video for every Spurs fan to see before their crunch clash against West Ham tonight –
