Arsenal blow Spurs away in stunning first half in North London derby

Arsenal ripped Spurs apart in a breathtaking 45 minutes in the North London Derby.

By Josh Lawless

Emile Smith-Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka were all on target in 34 minutes, with the visitors producing one of the worst halves of the season.

They lacked ideas with the ball, Harry Kane barely got a kick and was far too deep, and they were undone by three counter attack situations.

Spurs lost 3-0 to Crystal Palace a few weeks back and were beaten by the same scoreline by Chelsea at home last week.

And they are on course to lose 3-0 again after a poor performance against their rivals, who looked structured and balanced after a poor start to the new campaign.

Good heavens, @SpursOfficial are a shambles.

Smith-Rowe notched the opener from a Saka cut-back and then turned provider when he linked up wonderfully with Aubameyang down the left.

The two played a couple of one-twos from their own half and the Arsenal No.10 picked out the Gabon strike, who picked out the far bottom corner with his left foot.

Arsenal continued to be in the dreamland when Saka got in on the act, pulling the ball across Hugo Lloris for the third after a couple of ricochets.
