  1. The North London derby spoils go to Tottenham, whose 12-game unbeaten run in the Premier League is the best in their history.

Thanks for your messages today and I'll see you all again soon.

  3. 90+7

    Change right at the death for Spurs as Gallas replaces Lennon.

  4. 90+6

    Yellow card for Walker for kicking the ball away.

  5. 90+5

    Lloris gets a good punch to the corner and the hosts launch the ball up the pitch to kill further seconds, with Arsenal only likely to have one more chance to snatch an equaliser here!

    Another huge chance for Arsenal, as the ball sits up Podolski on the half-volley, before Dawson's despairing dive takes the ball behind for a corner.

  7. 90+3

    Rosicky begins another path into Spurs' half, but Livermore trips him and Mertesacker launches the ball forward, where Asso-Ekotto eventually clears for Spurs.

  8. 90+2

    Wilshere does well, but with the pressure of Sigurdsson his ball into Walcott is cut out by the immense Vertonghen.

    Dembele hobbles off, adding to the extra time somewhat, before being replaced by Livermore.
