An Alexandre Lacazette goal just before halftime has given host Arsenal a lifeline in the North London derby with Tottenham leading 2-1 at the break.

Christian Eriksen gave Spurs an early lead at the Emirates after a Bernd Leno blunder before Harry Kane doubled their advantage from the penalty spot in the 40th minute.

However, Lacazette drilled the ball past Hugo Lloris in stoppage time to cut the lead in half in an exciting derby.
