Tottenham Hotspur clashed heads with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium earlier today as they looked to earn a win on their travels in the Premier League. Spurs made a slow start to the contest and conceded the opener in the 26th minute when Cristian Romero scored an unfortunate own goal. However, Heung-min Son equalised for Spurs in the 42nd minute as the two sides went into the half-time interval with a 1-1 scoreline.
Bukayo Saka gave his team the lead once again in the 54th minute from the penalty spot. Just a minute later, Son scored again to make it 2-2. The match ended with Angelos Postecoglu’s men earning a hard-fought 2-2 draw in the English capital.
