Arsenal’s Per Mertesacker has tweeted a photograph of the Arsenal players in the dressing room after their derby-day win over Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.
Arsenal showed grit and determination to take all three points from White Hart Lane in a game which Tottenham dominated but Arsenal made more clear-cut chances.
A second-minute screamer from Tomas Rosicky who has a habit of finding the net against Spurs was the difference between the sides and for once Arsenal were the team who frustrated the opposition rather than the ones being frustrated.
The double is still very much from the red part of North London as Arsenal closed the gap on Chelsea to four points with a game in hand and with both sides due to face each other next weekend, nothing is settled in the race for the title.
Tottenham, however, slipped further behind in the race for fourth place and the final Champions League place.
