The London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham started horribly wrong for the Gunners but ended in great fashion as Robin Van Persie lead his team to perhaps the most successful game of the season.
Two quick goals from Saha and Adebayor from an invented penalty saw Arsenal lead 2-0 very early in the game and Wenger seemed hopeless after only 34 minutes in the London derby, while Dalglish was probably already thinking that he’ll rendered a club legend after he’ll leave the Spurs for the English national squad, but the Gunners had other plans.
After missing a few good chances through Robin, Arsenal finally scored when Arteta crossed the ball brilliantly to Sagna who smashed the ball into the net with an amazing header. The Gunners pushed on and only 10 minutes after Tottenham were going two up they managed to pull level after an brilliant shot from outside the box by Van Persie.
Unwanted midfielder Thomas Rosicky showed that he still has a lot to offer to the club when in the 51st minute he managed to get to the ball first and finish a low cross bringing the score to 3-2. The other player at Arsenal who has been highly criticized lately, Theo Walcott, brought the win for the Gunners and closed the scoreboard after two goals which brought his season total at 5.
After this win the Gunners have an amazing mojo going into the second leg game against Milan and finally managed to shut close the mouths of every Tottenham fan who was insisting on the fact that Arsenal are behind the Spurs for the first time in 16 years. Take that!
