(Video) Stephan Lichtsteiner’s failed knee slide while celebrating an Arsenal goal during Spurs win

Trailing 2-1 after the first 45 minutes, Arsenal scored thrice in a stunning second-half performance to seal a 4-2 victory over Tottenham in what was quite a memorably thrilling North London derby.

After Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had picked up his second of the night to bring Gunners back on level term, Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira applied the finishing touches to make sure the game was beyond Spurs.

Lacazette’s goal was a huge moment in the game as it clinched the lead back for Unai Emery’s men and the passion was quite visibly etched on the players’ faces as they rushed towards the corner flag, sliding on their knees to celebrate the goal.

However, some of the attention from that intense moment was stolen by Stephen Lichsteiner—an unused substitute—whose attempt at sliding to join his teammates in celebration resulted in his knee unfortunately getting stuck in the ground, which sent him tumbling forward.

Check out the light-hearted moment below:
