Emirates Stadium—London, England

Arsenal 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur

 

 

Arsenal reminded the world of football that they're still here and still strong as they dispensed with North London neighbours Tottenham Hotspur 1-0.

A tightly-contested game saw Olivier Giroud nick the winner midway through the first half, converting a near-post finish after great work from Theo Walcott on the right.

Andre Villas-Boas' side saw lots of the ball and gave a debut to Erik Lamela in desperation, but the Gunners held on to claim a vital victory.
