Twitter Reacts as Arsenal & Tottenham Draw Thrilling North London Derby

​Arsenal were typical Arsenal and Tottenham were typical Tottenham as both sides nearly gave their fans a collective heart attack during an enthralling 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The big news before kick-off was Unai Emery's decision to play all of his holy trinity from the off, Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette each getting the nod.

You just knew Gooners would love that bold move...

Well Mr Patrick Timmons, the opening stages of the contest suggested it was worth the wait as that attacking trident put Spurs on the back foot immediately...

Nevertheless, this is Arsenal we're talking about. Of course their positive start would culminate with a goal for their rivals...

​​

​​

Bernd Leno was at fault for the opener as he palmed a weak Erik Lamela effort straight into the Dane's path, though David Luiz and his partner Sokratis hardly covered themselves in glory...

And just like that, all momentum in the game swung the way of the visitors and all hope in Arsenal fans left the building...

They're like a pack of hungry wolves waiting to pounce on any opportunity to criticise the players and coaching staff. Then again, who can blame them - the Gunners truly are embarrassing at times.

The first-half can be summed up as follows: Arsenal find a way to frustrate, Tottenham make Arsenal's defence look like a bunch of schoolboys, Tottenham look far better...

It's not only the backline that needs work, however, as midfield anchor Granit Xhaka's woeful attempt at a tackle stopped Heung-min Son dead in his tracks.

Who else would take the Lilywhites penalty except for Harry Kane...

Oh boy, Gooners got mad, though one man in particular would be haunted by his Tweet...

So, it would be a worthy two-goal advantage for Mauricio Pochettino to take into the break if his recuits could just seen out the final minutes. SPOILERS! They couldn't...Flil

​​

The hosts came out for the restart fired up and ready to make amends for a shoddy showing, restoring belief at the Emirates Stadium...

​​

Tom, you may think you've seen this north London before, but surely you've also seen this Gunners side before...

Buuuutttt, Tom has probably watched this Tottenhan team, too...

Just 10 minutes later, the turnaround was complete! Wait, no. Sokratis was 0.1mm offside as he bundled the ball in. Cheers VAR, you've made this season infinitely better...

​​

Spurs might even have stolen it at the death but their last chance fell to...

​​

It was a thrilling match for the neutral, but supporters of either club involved will still be recovering as they head to work on Monday morning...

Thank you very much, Arsenal. Thank you very much, Tottenham Hotspur. That was superb.
