Arsenal lead 1-0 at half time of the north London derby as Mesut Ozil’s opportunistic strike is the difference between the two teams.

Tottenham had the first real chance of the game as a rapid counter attack saw Moussa Dembele break free and set up Kane. The Spurs striker bent a shot towards the far corner which David Ospina saved well but hurt himself in the process.


Ospina remained on the pitch and Spurs remained in the ascendancy as they pinned the Gunners. Then, against the run of play, Arsenal were ahead as Danny Welbeck surged past Danny Rose and pulled the ball back to Olivier Giroud who directed an effort goalwards which Ozil crashed home. 1-0 to the Arsenal.

Spurs pushed hard for an equalizer but the Gunners led at half time.
